How to find upcoming horse races and stakes schedule
There are many ways to find upcoming horse races!

There is horse racing happening every day somewhere in the world. It can be difficult to keep up and you’ll often wonder what the horse racing schedule is - what tracks are running and what stakes races are taking place. Here is a guide to help you find upcoming horse races.

Quick Answer on How To Find Upcoming Races:

How To Find Upcoming Horse Races

Use BloodHorse Stakes Calendar to Find Upcoming Major Races

The best way to find upcoming graded stakes and non-graded stakes races is by using BloodHorse’s Stakes Calendar.

This calendar lists the stakes races happening each day and gives you the race name, track, purse, and conditions - age, sex, distance, and surface. You can also find upcoming stakes races of a certain type by filtering this calendar by date, track, and conditions.

Use Equibase To Find Upcoming Races By Track

We recommend you use Equibase to find upcoming races at individual tracks. There are two ways to do so: use the Racing Dates Calendar or search tracks.

To use the Racing Dates Calendar to Find the Upcoming Race Schedule:

  1. Visit Equibase’s Racing Dates Calendar

  2. Scroll through the alphabetical list of tracks until you find the one you are interested in

  3. View entries for the upcoming days

To Search Tracks To Find the Upcoming Race Schedule:

  1. Go to

  2. Find the search bar at the top of the page

  3. Use the drop-down menu on the left side to select “Tracks”

  4. Type in the track you are looking for and press “search”

These methods will lead you to the same result - a page listing everything from entries, to results, to workouts. You can click on each day’s entries to see view the horses running in each race, their connections (jockey, trainer, breeder, owner), pedigree, morning line odds, and live odds. This is also where you can find the post time for each race.

Visit a Track’s Website to See Racing Schedule

Most tracks have their racing calendar and stakes schedule listed directly on their website. This is one of the easiest ways to figure out when each track is racing.

Now that you know how to find upcoming races, you'll want to learn how to watch them. Our post Where To Watch Live Horse Racing has all the answers you need.
