Ffos Las has brought back top class racing back to West Wales for the first time since 1937.

The setting is magnificent. It is surrounded by rolling hills and countryside and has a view down the Gwendraeth Valley to Carmarthen Bay. It is almost impossible to believe that it is the former site of the largest open cast coalmine in Europe.
This ambitious project was created by South Wales civil engineering company The Walters Group, and the driving force behind it was the company chairman and racehorse owner Mr David Walters.
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.
Since the opening meeting on Thursday June 18th 2009 Ffos Las has staged both National Hunt and Flat fixtures. It has excellent facilities and infrastructure for the racegoer, including ample free parking, a large stand housing plenty of bars and betting outlets. Above all it offers a great view of high quality racing in picturesque surroundings.
The racing programme is of a very high quality, and with Wales’ Horse Trainers currently flying high, and Irish Trainers keen to visit the track those who attend are guaranteed a feast of good racing.
