Racecourse Information

Ffos Las has brought back top class racing to West Wales for the first time since 1937.  You can find us at the heart of Carmarthenshire between the towns Llanelli and Carmarthen, and near the city of Swansea.

The 60 acre setting is magnificent.  We are surrounded by rolling hills and countryside and have views down the Gwendraeth Valley to Carmarthen Bay.  It is almost impossible to believe that Ffos Las was the former site of the largest open cast coalmine in Europe.

The track provides a racing surface to rival any course in the world.  It is 60m wide, has the benefit of miles of drainage and has been created level to provide a superb track to race on and a great viewing track for the racegoer.

One of the main focal points here at Ffos Las has to be our amazing sculpture. Situated in front of the Winners Enclosure, the “Spirit of the Race” sculpture provides the perfect meeting place as well as a great photo opportunity for all racegoers.
