Fontwell Park starts 2018 with an excellent programme of jump racing. The opening meeting for the year is on Monday January 8 with a six-race card that promises competitive jump racing at this highly popular Sussex track.

Top class action at Fontwell Park

Gates open at 11.15, with plenty of catering facilities for visitors to enjoy before the first race at 1.15pm.   There is the opportunity to get close to the horses as they parade in the paddock before going out on to the track for each race.

Fontwell Park’s attractive surroundings

Fine viewing from the stands enables racegoers to see all the action throughout racing and Fontwell Park has two enclosures. The Grandstand and Paddock enclosure gives access to three grandstands, the parade ring, winning circle and a number of bars and food outlets.

Fontwell’s Premier enclosure includes all of the above plus access to the ground floor of the Premier Grandstand. This has a large indoor bar and premier café as well as seated viewing overlooking the Winning Post.
