The first ever race held at Kempton Park took place on the 18th July 1878. The Park had been bought by Henry Hyde six years earlier, who went on to fulfil his ambition of building a racecourse on the site.
The current grandstand was completed in 1997 after some redevelopment work. The racecourse was closed in May 2005 for the construction of the all-weather floodlit course which was completed eleven months later.
The rest, as they say…is history…
