Racing is year round at Kempton Park Racecourse with their flat All Weather track (including day time meetings and evening flood-lit meetings), and from October to March jump racing takes place on the turf.
Kempton’s floodlit All Weather track is a right-handed, ten furlong oval. This is the first racecourse in the world to use a retractable floodlighting system – so when racing’s taking place in the daylight the columns go down and everyone has a great view of the course.
Kempton Park, Europe’s premier floodlit track, hosts both jump and flat racing, but is famed for the legendary King George VI Steeple Chase. Held on Boxing Day since 1937 it provides the pinnacle to a quality jump racing calendar.
Its long and prestigious list of former champions is headed by crowd favourite Desert Orchid and features the illustrious Arkle and Best Mate amongst other famous winners.
