Boxing Day racing at Fontwell Park

Don’t miss Fontwell Park’s Boxing Day meeting this year. This festive event is one of the most popular fixtures on this racecourse’s calendar.

There is always top class jump racing at this popular fixture, which has seven races scheduled.

Last year the opening Conditional Jockeys’ Handicap Hurdle, run over two miles three furlongs set the standard for the day with a thrilling finale, in which only a neck separated the first two home.

In the final stages Ben Hicks and Michael Heard fought out the finish in fine style with Michael Heard going on to bring 6-4 favourite Oskar Denarius home to win by a neck for trainer Jennifer Mason from 13-2 shot River Dun, trained by David Pipe.

The atmosphere and cheers will continue throughout the day and one of the most prestigious races in England, The King George VI Chase at Kempton Park will be relayed on the big screen for everyone to see.

And at Fontwell Park itself, some top quality jump racing is guaranteed at this popular fixture.
