This is a public area so people can watch the races here for free, consequently these used to be the most watched races in England. The first recorded race was held here in 1661, even though racing was going on before this time because there is a record from the local burial list of 1625 that refers to "William Stanley who in running the race fell from his horse and broke his neck". Charles II was a racegoer at this historic track. Famous artists print #188
