Fakenham Double Up Bonus Race Conditions 

Fakenham has changed its Double Up Bonus Race Scheme to make it simpler and more achievable to win. From 1st January 2023 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, the winning owner of each race will get a £1,000 bonus payment on top of the prize money received. In addition, the winning trainer will also get a £1,000 bonus payment if having two more or winners.

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

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 bag of locally produced wine, beer and gin and if the race has a commercial sponsor 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.

– 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 (hand cooked potato crisps).

– 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.
