The Juvenile Hurdle Race is the first race that takes place at Kempton Park’s Jump Sunday meeting every October after the summer flat racing season.
Jump Sunday is the first National Hunt event to take place at Kempton Park Racecourse after a summer of intense flat racing, offering a wonderful seven-race card with an exquisite mix of hurdle races and steeplechase, including the likes of the Class 1 Novices’ Hurdle Race and the Class 1 Hurdle Race.
Jump Sunday takes place just two months before The Christmas Festival, which offers some prestigious delights such as The King George VI Chase, the second most prestigious steeplechase behind The Cheltenham Gold Cup, as well as The Desert Orchid Chase and The Christmas Hurdle.
If you’ve yet to visit Kempton Park Racecourse for any of their racedays, add Jump Sunday to your calendar and try your best to head down to the London outskirts this October.
