at Carlisle Racecourse



Welcome to Carlisle Racecourse stable staff page – due to the current pandemic we have made a couple of changes to the site to help accommodate social distancing and current protocols.


All catering is now done from Silks Café which is located up past the parade ring, you can get a sandwich bag and hot food along with Tea and coffee from this outlet.  No food will be served from the hostel. However there is seating available in the canteen area and the TV will be on so you can watch the racing from here if you wish. We have an additional overflow seating area in the William Hill shop just up from Silks Café which has tables and chairs, tv’s on for racing.



Carlisle has a stabling capacity of 98. This is located about 100 yrds from the Pre-parade ring and Parade ring.
