Kempton Races Race Calendar

Kempton Park Racecourse has one of the busiest racing calendars in UK racing, with several meetings taking place every month throughout the year thanks to Kempton’s wonderful all-weather facilities and floodlighting.

From its base in Sunbury-on-Thames just inside the County of Surrey but on the border of Greater London, Kempton Park Racecourse plays host to dozens of race days and meetings all year round. Here are a few of the most notable meetings that take place annually at Kempton Park:
