Racecourse has announced a third consecutive year of growth in prize money, to a new record of over £6 million, for the seventeen day season which begins on Wednesday 14 May 2014.  This increase amounts to over £200,000 more than the already record investment of last season and a boost of over 20% since 2011.  The benefits will be felt across the range of contests staged on the Knavesmire from Group Ones to handicaps for horses building their careers.   The richest race ever staged at York will be the Group One Juddmonte International, the showpiece of the opening day of the Welcome to Yorkshire Ebor Festival on Wednesday 20 August when the top middle distance horses in the world will compete for a record £800,000 (up by £50,000) and the chance to join a roll of honour that includes the mighty Frankel.
