There was a time when St Albans was home to the steeplechase. Horses and famous riders came from all stretches of the world to provide their services and the event was seen as a very highly anticipated affair as well as being prestigious at the same time.
Legend has it that many riders decided to cancel their trips to the Grand National so that they could take part in this event. However it must be stated that the event did not continue after 1839.
There are various other venues in St Albans and surrounding areas and these include horse racing, go karting, grey hound racing, bike racing and also stock car racing to match.
