The Class 5 Nursery

The Class 5 Nursery Flat Race is the first race that takes place during the second August Evening Racing meeting of the month every year at Kempton Park Racecourse.

Offering a magnificent nine-race card, the August Evening Racing meeting is one of a multitude of meetings and race days that take place at Kempton Park Racecourse every season.

The great level of prominence Kempton Park has is owing to its incredible all-weather Polytrack and floodlighting facilities, which mean weather and lighting conditions are seldom an issue, except for in extremely adverse circumstances.

This particular Evening Racing meeting is scheduled to take place on Wednesday the 11th of August 2021. For all of The Kempton Park Racecourse Evening Racing news and ticket information, sign up for The Jockey Club’s newsletter at https://www.thejockeyclub.co.uk/newsletter/.
