Originally shared by Ed Pearce

The first recorded horse race meeting at England’s oldest course, Chester, took place on February 9, 1540. Early victors were awarded the „Chester Bells”, a set of decorative bells for decorating the horse’s bridle. Races originally took place on Shrove Tuesday until 1609, and thereafter on St George’s Day.
