In 2006 Kempton Park redeveloped it's tracks to incorporate all weather racing. The Polytrack and floodlighting have been in place since 2006 and can accomodate up to 17 runners at a time. Horses race right-handed over distances of 5f, 6f, 7f, 1m, 1m3f, 1m4f and 2m.
The 1m 5f triangular course used for National Hunt meetings is a totally fair, flat track which should suit most horses. It s not too tight, not too galloping and requires speed and stamina in equal measure.
