Grateful to Stephen McCurrie for the scan of the racecard

The first recorded races in Jersey were in 1832 when a 2 day meeting was noted to have taken place at St Aubin. Since that early meeting races have flourished at various locations including Greve d'Azette, Gorey Common, Jardin d'Olivet and Les Landes.
The Principal race in the early days was the King's Cup, a trophy being given by King George IV. From 1906 until 1961 meetings took place at Les Quennevais, but the present day course is at Les Landes which can be found in St Ouen next to the ruins of Grosnez Castle.
Race meetings are organised by Jersey Race Club with meetings being held every Bank Holiday.
The Principal race now is the Jersey Derby which is the second leg of the Channel Islands Triple Crown.
