Sandown Park occupies a unique place in British racing history and has been the backdrop to legendary contests between horses and riders that remain household names.
"How pleasant once more," wrote a satisfied customer in 1879, "to find ourselves within the Sandown Club Enclosure, under a genial sky and with all the well-known surroundings of pretty women, good luncheon and good sport.
Most other racecourses evolved from misty, Medieval origins, but Sandown Park was the first purpose built racecourse with enclosures, designed to be a leisure destination.
In the words of a contemporary diarist, it was 'a place where a man could take his ladies without any fear of their hearing coarse language or witnessing uncouth behaviour.'
Sandown Park was the Queen Mother's favourite course and provided a suitably impressive backdrop to the feats of Arkle, Mill Reef and Desert Orchid. Yet it has always developed in sympathy with the spirit of the times and is now one of the most modern and accessible racing venues in the country.
Sandown Park is one of Britain’s most loved and revered racecourses. It is one of the UK’s top exhibition venues and was shortlisted for ‘Best Exhibition Venue Under 4,000m2’ in April 2018 (Exhibition News Awards).
