Racecourse Construction

With a history of constructing and maintaining racecourses, we have produced exceptional horse racing facilities for clients such as Ascot Racecourse. We are proud to have worked with horse racing venues across the globe.

Read our case study on how we constructed the racecourse at Ascot.

"The task of re-building the track was huge, involving the importing and laying of 70,000 tonnes of specialist materials. White Horse Contractors was superb in its execution of this major undertaking, particularly given the time constraints. We now have a world-class track that will be raceable in most weather conditions and has consistency that previously we could only have dreamt of."

- Chris Stickels, Clerk of the Course, Ascot Racecourse
