Course Description

Fakenham Racecourse features a left-handed, almost square track, known for its sharp bends and short straights, making it one of the more unique tracks in the UK. This configuration provides a distinctive challenge for jockeys and horses, emphasizing agility and strategy. Often considered a sharp track, in fact many races wind up being stamina-sapping tests as horses and riders can travel faster than optimal on this quirky course.

The racecourse exclusively hosts National Hunt races, with the Fakenham Silver Cup and the Easter Monday Meeting being notable fixtures in its calendar. The course's compact layout allows spectators to get close to the action, offering an immersive and engaging racing experience.
