About Lingfield Park Racecourse
Flat / National Hunt / All Weather
In 1890, the Prince of Wales – later Edward VII, opened Lingfield Park, allowing the racecourse to use the Prince of Wales feathers in its official heading in perpetuity.
Initially Jump Racing
The course initially opened as a Jumps course and, in 1894 also started as a Flat racing venue. The course’s similarities with Epsom make it a recognised trial for the Derby and Oaks.
In 1989, Lingfield became the first racecourse in the UK with an all-weather track; this also makes it the only racecourse in the UK to stage racing of all three types – Flat Turf, Flat All-Weather and National Hunt – and it is the busiest racecourse in Europe.
