A New Season Is About To Get Under Way At Plumpton Racecourse

A New Season Is About To Get Under Way At Plumpton Racecourse

by Plumpton Racecourse

With the 2017/2018 season long since gone, and having watched lots of racing going on in beautiful conditions over the summer, we are looking forward more than ever to the start of the 2018/19 season here at Plumpton. After such a wet winter, it was hard to envisage such a dry summer but that’s what we’ve had and we could now do with a bit of rain to get some ease into the ground, otherwise we’ll be watering again very shortly!

A question we get asked a lot on course is “what do you do in the summer at Plumpton?”, but we can tell you that we have had a very busy summer here with lots of development going on. We have expanded the Owners and Trainers bar to create a facility that is modern but can also cope with the growing interest and expansion of racehorse ownership into syndicates. We’ve changed the layout of the ground floor of the Southdown Stand and so we have expanded the Southdown Bar and the racecourse office will now be situated on the ground floor here too, as well as having the Paddock Restaurant roof re-done. There are plenty of other plans in the pipeline as well, and we can’t wait to have you all back to see for yourself what has been going on and make your experience even better than it has been in the past.

The 2018/19 season involves an array of fixtures including our high-profile race meetings, featuring our signature races such as The Sussex National, Sussex Champion Chase and Sussex Champion Hurdle but we also have some new meetings in the Plumpton calendar. Three midweek fixtures bring something completely new and we are excited for you to come and enjoy some racing on a Wednesday afternoon. In addition, we are thrilled to announce a brand-new fixture on the 18th March, this is a new raceday for us and extends our season to 17 racedays and look forward to having an extra raceday during the spring.

Family Raceday on the 23rd September is our first raceday of the year and we begin with a whole lot of fun for all the family. We have PAW Patrol coming to see all our little racegoers, plus plenty more entertainment as well will be on offer, it is sure to be a great day for everyone, especially with accompanied under 18s being free!

We hope to see you all very soon at Plumpton for a new and exciting season with plenty of racing taking place.
