Plumpton is a small, friendly, countryside course in East Sussex. They rightly claim to be a hidden gem in the world of horse racing. Plumpton is a very sharp, undulating, left-handed track of just over a mile in circumference. This tight circuit does not suit every horse and previous course form can be a key factor.
The course provides a real test for both horses and jockeys. The ground can become very testing during the winter months where the uphill finish often plays an important role in the outcome of races. The course has a downhill run on the far side of the track before an uphill climb to the finishing post. The fences are relatively easy but the downhill fence on the far side can cause problems when horses do not meet it on a good stride.
Racing first took place at Plumpton in 1884 and The Queen Mother enjoyed her first winner at the course with Super Fox in 1963. Television commentator Derek Thompson rode Classified to victory over HRH The Prince of Wales on Long Warf in 1980 and Tony McCoy rode his 3,000th career winner here aboard Restless d’Artaix in 2009. Famous racehorses to win at Plumpton include Grand National winners Nickel Coin, Foinavon and Comply Or Die.

Plumpton offer a variety of packages to create your perfect day at the races. The course prides itself on supplying top quality locally-sourced food and drinks. Suppliers include Brighton and Newhaven fish sales, Harvey’s Brewery and Long Man Brewery.
