The end of racing at Kempton

on Wed 11 Jan 2017, 12:13 pm
The historic Kempton Park racecourse could be closed to make way for 3,000 homes as part of plans to raise £500m to invest in horse racing.

Course owner the Jockey Club says the proposal, with Redrow Homes, is "for the long-term good of British racing".

A new all-weather venue, most likely located at Newmarket, would be built as part of the plans.

Should the proposal go ahead, Kempton's famous King George VI Chase would move to Sandown, located six miles away.

Racing will continue at Kempton until at least 2021, and the redevelopment will only proceed if more than £100m is raised from the sale and the all-weather circuit is given the go-ahead.

Three-time champion trainer Nicky Henderson tweeted: "The King George isn't the same race at Sandown. Kempton is a track National Hunt racing cannot afford to lose. It's that simple. Very sad news indeed."


Anyone affected on here?!
