King George Meeting Takes Centre Stage

After horse racing fans have celebrated Christmas, many of them then pick up their racing guide and study the form for Boxing Day. While there are a stack of meetings on 26 December, none are bigger than the King George VI Chase Meeting which features the King George itself.

This is a Grade 1 race run over three miles and features some of the best chasers in the land. Kempton differs to a course like Cheltenham in the sense that it’s a good deal flatter. There are eighteen fences to overcome in the King George and it’s a race where horses often win more than once.

For example, punters favourite Kauto Star triumphed on four consecutive occasions between 2006-2009. The Paul Nicholls-trained star then returned in 2011 to win for a fifth time as an eleven-year-old.

Kicking King, Long Run and Silviniaco Conti have all won the race more than once in recent years, with trainer Paul Nicholls having claimed ten King George VI Chase wins.

Bet on the Christmas Hurdle at Kempton

Kempton also plays host to the Christmas Hurdle which is a two-mile encounter which also takes place on 26 December. This race is run over the same distance as the Champion Hurdle the following March and therefore means you will see this as the final race before the Cheltenham Festival.

Faugheen was a dual winner of this race in 2014 and 2015, although it’s usually British horses that win the race, with Binocular claiming the spoils in 2010 and 2011, while jockey AP McCoy also won the race in 2012 and 2013 on board Darlan and My Tent or Yours respectively.

There is also the Kauto Star Novices’ Chase that takes place on 26 December, while there’s another excellent card at Kempton on 27 December which means punters can place more racing bets on the action.

The two most prominent horse betting races on this day are the Wayward Lad Novices’ Chase and Desert Orchid Chase. They are both run over two miles and they are Grade Two races, with the first of these races appealing more to younger horses.

Kempton Hosts Other National Hunt meetings

Kempton punters can fill their boots when it comes to several other races that take place on the National Hunt calendar. The Lanzarote Hurdle is run over two miles and five furlongs, while there are also some exciting chase and hurdle races that take place in February.

The BetBright Chase is likely to be renamed after the bookmaker was folded although this is still a big money race that attracts star performers, with other races on the National Hunt scene being the Adonis Juvenile Novices’ Hurdle, Pendil Novices’ Chase and Dovecote Novices’ Hurdle.

The Flat Racing Season Takes Off at Kempton

Kempton also has an all-weather flat racing track for that particular season, with several meetings available for betting purposes. Between March and April, we can enjoy the Magnolia Stakes, Rosebery Stakes and Easter Stakes. There is also the Snowdrop Fillies’ Stakes in April.

Later in the Flat season, there is an all-weather Flat meeting in September and that plays host to the Sirenia Stakes and September Stakes. In November, Kempton Park also has a floodlit meeting where the Floodlit Stakes is among the races being run.
