The clock is ticking to the sixth All-Weather Championships Finals on Good Friday.  In just a week’s time at Lingfield Park the leading all-weather horses will gallop for glory and a total of £1 million in prize money at the richest all-weather race day staged in Europe.

Tonight’s floodlit racing at Kempton Park is one of the last opportunities for horses to stake their place at Finals Day which features six race categories.  Namely 3-Year-Olds, Fillies & Mares, Sprint, Marathon, Mile and Middle Distance.  It’s also an opportunity for jockeys, trainers and owners alike to improve their standings in the leaderboards that will determine who is the Champion Jockey, Champion Trainer, Champion Owner and Champion Apprentice Jockey on 19 April.

There are six races on the card tonight including two sprints over 6 furlongs and two races over the mile


distance.  Trainer Michael Appleby has Glory of Paris entered in the 6.15pm with Appleby looking for winners in his neck-and-neck battle with John Gosden and Mark Johnston to be crowned Champion Trainer.  Johnston – who became the most successful trainer in British racing history last August claiming his 4,194th winner – has a number of horses taking part including I Am A Dreamer in the 7.15pm.

Gates open at 4.10pm.  First race at 5.40pm, last race at 8.15pm.

Tickets in advance are available via the ‘Get Tickets’ link.  Advance purchases attract a discount.

Tickets on the day at Kempton Park Racecourse are available.  Under 18s (maximum of 2) are free when accompanied by an adult.
