Doncaster is the large town in South Yorkshire, England and famous for its race track. The racing season starts from March and comes to an end in November.

During World War 1 the race track was used as a military base and races were shifted to Newmarket until 1918. The first ever Sunday meeting on a British race track was staged at none other than the Doncaster race track in 1992. A crowd of more than 20,000 appeared, yet there was no betting.
