National Hunt racing at Fakenham has been going on for well over 100 years, with racing there being consistent since its inception with the exception of the war years. In 2002, the grandstand that had stood on site since 1953 was replaced by a new model, which cost over £1m. In the same year the King replaced the Queen as the patron of the course and he was granted the honour of opening the brand new stand.
