Kempton Park Racecourse

Being part of the commuter belt to London the course in Sunbury-on-Thames makes Kempton Park an excellent horse racing venue in London, it is just 16 miles from the centre and is served by its own railway station.

A track that suits every face it has both a national hunt and flat course, along with an all weather track.  The course is best known for its National Hunt fixtures which include King George VI Chase which is ran annually on Boxing day.

The all weather track is the only right handed all weather course in the United Kingdom. It is oval in shape and the distance is either 8 or 10 furlongs depending upon the inner or outer bend being used. The surface of the track is made from synthetic polytrack and is believed to be deeper than other all weather tracks such as Lingfield and Wolverhampton and therefore not as fast.

The national hunt course is a right-handed flat triangular circuit of one mile and five furlongs which has a run in of 220 yards and each year the site hosts 16 flat racing fixtures.

On the oval course there the draw stall advantage on races of 8 furlongs shows that there is a slight bias towards high drawn numbers.

Jockey Richard Hughes has done consistently well here as has trainer Gary Moore.
