Ffos Las in Carmarthenshire is the UK's newest racecourse.


Set the beautiful countryside between the two villages of to Trimsaran and Carway.
Ffos Las has been built on the site of an old opencast mine and because this racecourse has been designed and built from scratch it should not suffer from the difficulties that sometimes befalls new racecourses.
Although the facilities of such a small racecourse can't possibly compete with larger racecourses the developers of Ffos Las had great insight to take the opportunity early to develop this disused opencast mine which was just a hole in the ground and develop a race track of the finest quality.

This part of the world gets a lot of rain but the course has some of the best purpose built drainage of any racecourse in the country and this should stand it in good stead for the "all year round" racing that Ffos Las hopes to stage.

Being so close to the east coast of Ireland will also be of good advantage to Ffos Las and it is hoped that many Irish connections will send their horses here for the racing. Ffos Las is also making good connections with Irish racecourses offering their annual members free entry on selected days at Fairyhouse, Punchestown Tranmore, Wexford and also the Curragh. Ffos las management have also had the insight to declare that any annual members badges are fully transferable to family members and also friends if you are unable to attend any race day. I have not seen this offered by any other racecourse before and shows the level of commitment and good sense that will be shown to supporters of Ffos Las.

I was lucky enough to attend the first day of racing at Ffos Las on the 18th of june and although this was not the official opening which took place on Friday 28th of August. I can recommend this course as the limited facilities were more than acceptable and the real bonus was that the viewing of the races is excellent. as you can see from this video of the first race ever held at Ffos las.
