Fontwell Races

Fontwell Racecourse, also known as Fontwell Park Racecourse, is a left-handed British horse racing venue in West Sussex.

This is a National Hunt track for races over jumps only, and Fontwell races is unique in that the chase course is completely different to the hurdles track.

Events over the smaller obstacles take place on a traditional oval course of a mile in length. This includes the feature Grade 2 National Spirit Hurdle, in February, run over two miles and three furlongs. The chase track, however, is shaped into a figure of eight.

The big race over fences is the Southern National, a handicap chase at a distance of three miles and three furlongs in November. It’s worth noting that artificial surfaces are used on the bends as these were previously prone to flooding.

Fontwell Races Tips

  • Jamie Moore is the only jockey that rode more than 40 winners at Fontwell Racecourse in the five National Hunt seasons between 2015-16 and 2019-20. He did so at a 20 per cent strike rate in the saddle, but other ridders had better averages.
  • They include Richard Johnson (33/119) and Harry Cobden (25/85).
  • Gary Moore was the leading trainer in that period, saddling 68 winners at Fontwell races at an 18 per cent success ratio.
  • Anthony Honeyball (24/68) and Paul Nicholls (35/89) had even better strike rates with their horses, however.

The jockey's view

By Bryony Frost - Most successful female jump jockey in history

The chase track at Fontwell Racecourse is a figure of eight so horses that prefer to jump slightly left or slightly right will get their preferred way at some point. There’s a stiff incline up the hill to the finish and horses can come from anywhere. If the ground is better you’re more likely to see front running horses do well. They’ve added sand to the bottom bend because it got so testing and horses can come out of the shoot at the last and then get a bit lonely if they’re out in front.

The hurdle track is very simple, all round the outside. You find that with a circuit to go you have to be on tail because everyone will kick on down the hill.
