OWNER INFORMATION REF COVID 19
As of Boxing Day Norfolk is in Tier 4 category and until further notice ALL racing at Fakenham is behind closed doors. Sadly, we are not allowed ANY owners to attend any race meetings at the moment.
Fakenham Double Up Bonus Race Conditions
From October 2020 Fakenham Racecourse will pre-select two handicap races on each race day that qualify as a ‘Double Up Bonus Race’. If the winning horse in both of the Double Up Bonus Races is trained by the same trainer then the winning owner of each race will get an extra £2000 added to the winning owner’s prize money. The extra prize money will only be paid to the winning owner, not to placed horses, and will be distributed in accordance with the Stakes and Prize Money Code via Weatherbys. Also, there must be at least eight horses that go to post in each Double Up Bonus Race in order for the bonus to be paid. If there are less than eight runners in either race the bonus will not be paid even if the two winning horses are trained by the same trainer.
Fakenham Racecourse warmly welcomes Owners & Trainers to all race meetings.
For going reports and up to date racing information Owners & Trainers can visit the next race meeting page within our website, or can contact the Clerk of the Course, David Hunter, on 07767 802206, or by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
OWNER INFORMATION REF COVID 19
All owners must register their intent to come racing at Fakenham via the PASS system so that owners’ names are on the list for attendance.
Before each race meeting owners will receive a email letter from PASS reminding you how to register to attend the race meeting and you will receive a link to a digital Fakenham racecard.
Please follow the yellow AA road signs when approaching Fakenham and enter the racecourse from the town entrance (postcode NR21 7NY).
You will be stopped at an Amber Zone control point where you name will be checked against the PASS list of attending owners, your temperature taken and you will be asked three Covid related questions. Having passed all of this you will be given a red wrist band and you will then be parked on the gravel car park close to the parade ring room which will be your base for the day and where you will be given your own table and given a warm welcome by Rachel, Roe and Amanda.
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 challenge 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 refreshments 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.
Thank you for racing at Fakenham Racecourse. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon.
