The following is offered to all owners with horses running at a Fakenham race meeting:

 

NO FEES are payable by owners when horses are entered into any Fakenham race. Fakenham is one of only two racecourses that offers a FREE entry system for all races.

– The winning owner of every race receives either a perpetual challange  cup / trophy (which is held for a year before being returned to the racecourse) or a memento. In addition, winning connections will be invited for a drink and refreshements with the Racecourse Chairman immediately after winning their race. They will be able to watch a replay of the race and be given a DVD to take home.

– All races have a best turned out horse cash prize that is given to the lad or lass in charge of the chosen horse.

– Before each race meeting all owners who have entered a horse will receive a letter from the racecourse reminding them of the facilities and arrangements.

– All owners with a horse running at Fakenham will receive four complimentary badges per horse and six complimentary badges if the horse ownership is in a syndicate. Further badges can be bought on the day at 50% discount. In addition, owners can contact the Clerk of the Course, David Hunter, on 07767 802 206 or david@fakenhamracecourse.co.uk, to discuss any badge requests.

– On approaching the outskirts of Fakenham town owners must follow the yellow AA roadsigns to enter the course via the Pudding Norton entrance  (postcode NR21 7NA). Approaching the Racecourse a grass owners and trainers carpark can be found on the right hand side. Opposite the carpark is the red brick office building and badges are collected from the reception on the ground floor. If by mistake owners enter the racecourse from the other road they will be charged the £10 adult entry fee and be asked to park in the centre of the course. If this happens please keep hold of your £10 ticket, make your way to the office receiption to receive your badge entitlement and refund where appropriate.

There is also an exclusive option for owners and trainers only to have a two-course lunch (£25 per head, to include one glass of wine) in the Stewards and Officials Dining Room once the officials have finished, normally from half an hour before the first race. To book this option please contact the Racecourse by midday the day before the racing.

– There is a small viewing area in the old Grandstand reserved for owners and trainers.
