Fontwell

Located between Chichester and Arundel, Fontwell Park is one of our idiosyncratic tracks. The course stages only jump racing.

Fontwell hosts racing every month except July.

Course Characteristics:

The hurdle track is a simple left handed (anti-clockwise) oval of just over a mile in length. The chase course, however forms a figure of eight inside the hurdle circuit.

Because of its strange layout chase races tend to go to course specialists. Some spectacular “up close” viewing can be achieved in the centre of the course.

Fontwell is not a good course for big long striding horses and the configuration can find out inexperienced runners.
