Hare Coursing

The first horserace meeting at Plumpton Racecourse was in February 1884 after the venue had been used for enclosed hare coursing for several years.

Jump Racing Starts

In 1890, a new steeplechase course was introduced, incorporating an extended circuit behind the stands, and the racecourse now exclusively hosts Jump racing through the winter months.
