The racecourse is set within a 450 acre estate, opened in 1890 by the then Prince of Wales who was destined to become Edward VII. Initially only jump racing was held at the estate but The Jockey Club granted permission for flat racing to be held in 1894. Nowadays it is a major events venue offering great facilities in addition to the racing.
Lingfield Park is best known as an all-weather flat racing course, one of only four in the UK, what this means is that instead of the usual sand, grass or dirt, the track is made from Polytrak, a synthetic substance made from a mixture of silica sand, carpet, spandex and recycled rubber or PVC …stuff that wouldn’t sound out of place in an Ann Summers catalogue 🙂 this has the benefit of allowing racing to continue when bad weather would have normally cancelled race days.
