For the first time in 20 years, you can enjoy jumps racing at Royal Windsor Racecourse. Returning in December 2024, book your tickets early to redeem incredible discount and avoid disappointment!

Following our first jumps fixture on Sunday 15th December 2024, we're delighted to present the Berkshire Winter Million Weekend in January 2025, in partnership with our neighbour Ascot Racecourse. The Berkshire Winter Million will consist of three consecutive days of top class jumps racing, with over £1.2 million in prize money available, including the Grade 1 BetMGM Clarence House Chase, the headline of the Saturday afternoon card at Ascot, and the £165,000 Fitzdares Fleur de Lys Chase on the Sunday at Royal Windsor. You can find out more here.

Becoming a Dual Course

Our grounds team have been working hard to develop new areas of the track to offer an optimal configuration of jumps racing. It will utilise dormant turfed areas which are being brought up to a racing standard. Runners will take a continuous left-handed circuit, instead of the previous figure of eight.

The jumps season will host it's first fixture on Sunday 15th December 2024, with further dates to be confirmed in 2025. We will continue to run our flat season April-October, including Monday Night Racing and feature Saturdays.

National Hunt History

National Hunt racing has seen some notable winners, including:

  • In 1993, Royal Athlete won the 2m6½f handicap hurdle on New Year's Day. Royal Athlete later went on to win the 1995 Grand National.
  • In 2004, when Windsor Racecourse hosted fixtures on behalf of Ascot during redevelopment in 2004 and 2005, Monet's Garden won the Ascot Hurdle. Monet's Garden went on to win multiple Grade One races including the Liverpool Hurdle, Old Roan Chase and the Melling Chase.
  • Also transferred from Ascot, the Champion Stayer Baracouda won the Long Walk Hurdle in December 2004, which he had won for three consecutive years at the neighbouring track.
