What better way to start 2020 by joining us at Plumpton for the Sky Sports Racing Sussex National on Sunday 5th January? Blow away those Christmas Blues and join us for one of our flagship races and fixtures and let’s make it a Sussex Tradition!

With over £80k of Prize Money on offer and the big race itself being worth over £30k, we always get a brilliant turn out of runners. The maximum field size of 18 is often reached and what better spectacle is there than these beautiful horses weighing around half a ton, powering over the fences at over 30mph over 3 miles 4 ½ furlongs to claim the much heralded trophy? Last year the Nicky Martin trained The Two Amigos claimed the win in an enthralling contest, but who will the victor be this time round?!

There’s plenty more going on too, not least a further competitive six races on the card where last year we had runners from France, Ireland and all parts of England for our Cheltenham Bonus Series Race (won by the brilliant Master Dino), so ensure you listen to Lee McKenzie for a tipsters talk before racing in the paddock.

Come and join us for the day in style by booking a box and enjoy a fine dining experience with a view of the home straight and finishing line. Take a seat in the newly refurbished Paddock Restaurant for a fantastic experience with a view over the Parade Ring and balcony overseeing the finishing line or why not try the newly decorated Marquee Restaurant with a superb menu and get up close to the final fence and hurdle and see the heart of the action.

If it’s just tickets you are after, we’ve got you covered! With three bars to choose from all varying in style and atmosphere we have something for everyone. Give our Southdown Bar a visit, with plenty of indoor seating, a café and food outlet (including bean to cup coffee from our local supplier, Back Yard coffee based in Ditchling). All our bars are filled with of Local beers and ciders including Hairy Dog, Longmans, Harvey's and Silly Moo Cider, whilst also featuring plenty of well know beers such as Stella Artois, Becks and Guinness. 

Come with a group of you and tickets are available from just £17 when buying ten or more, with individual tickets available from £19 when purchased in advance. All children under 18 come in FREE of charge with adults. There’s plenty of other food outlets, burger vans, coffee units and options on site so you will be well catered for however you join us. But it’s a day not to be missed however you join as history will be made at one of our flagship fixtures.
