Birmingham Racecourse

You are here Home  > Miscellaneous >  Birmingham Racecourse

The racecourse was built over the top of an ancient American Indian burial ground. Staff working late hours have reported seeing shadowy figures standing out on the racecourse. Maniacal laughter and voices have been heard in the stables, and phantom hoof beats and winning has been heard on various parts of the racecourse.

  1. Funny thing is…this is a vehicle racecourse, not a horse racecourse. There are not stables…Not sure how the nonexistent stables could be haunted…

  2. me and my friends went here to see if this place is really haunted and when we got here nothing happened until later we saw a shadow run near us we got scared and wanted to leave but we stayed longer to see what else happens then me and my friend heard a laugh we got even more scared and then me and my friend heard another voice but did not know where it came from so we left the place
