Located at the foot of the beautiful South Downs in East Sussex.
About Plumpton Racecourse:
Located at the foot of the beautiful South Downs in East Sussex, Plumpton is renowned for its friendly welcome, excellent viewing, great atmosphere and as a nursery ground for many of Jump racing's future equine stars. A very sharp, undulating, left-handed track of one mile, one furlong in circumference, Plumpton provides a real test for both horses and riders. Based on a clay surface, the ground can become particularly testing during the winter months where its uphill finish often plays an important role in the outcome of races. Despite its sharp nature, the ability to see out a trip and battle is a must when the conditions are testing. Children under 18 accompanied by an adult go free.
Course Details: Left-handed, undulating, sharp. A Circuit of 1m 1f.
