Fakenham Double-Up Bonus Race Conditions 

If a trainer has two or more winners on the same card, irrespective of the race conditions or the number of runners in a race, they receive a £1,000 bonus payment.  Their winning owners of each race will then also receive a £1,000 bonus payment on top of the prize money received. 

Benefits of running a horse at Fakenham:

  • 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 a selection of locally produced products including wine, beer and gin and if the race has a commercial sponsor, also a memento. Many of the prestigious races have perpetual Silver Trophies or Cups which form part of the presentation. They remain at the racecourse and the horse and owners’ names are engraved onto them.  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 and a photograph.
  • The winners of the top race(s) on the race card recieves an oil painting of their horse by our local artist Mouse Cooper
  • All races have a best turned out horse cash prize (minimum of £50) that is given to the person in charge of the chosen horse.
  • Each winning yard takes home two boxes of Kettle Chips.
  • Each placed connection (if present) receives a bottle of Norfolk gin (the number of placing to qualify depends on the numbers of horses in each race).


Thank you for racing at Fakenham Racecourse. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon.
