Where is Hexham Racecourse?

What is Hexham Racecourse Famous For?

Hexham is the highest racecourse (at 800 feet or 245 metres above sea level) in Britain and arguably the most picturesque with stunning views of the surrounding countryside.

The first Hexham Races were recorded as being held in 1738 although the current Yarridge venue was not used until 1793. They were something of a makeshift affair until Charles William Chipchase Henderson opened what we now know as Hexham Racecourse in 1890.

1907 saw the first running of the Heart of all England Chase which continues, now as a maiden hunter chase, to this day.

Track Specifics at Hexham Racecourse

Hexham is a left-handed undulating one and a half-mile (2400m) long oval track. The climb on the home turn catches several horses out with jockeys trying to avoid the temptation of kicking too early on a course which places great demands on stamina, especially when the ground is testing.

Biggest Meeting's at Hexham Racecourse

Hexham has no big races as such although the Heart of all England Maiden Hunters' Chase in May is its most historic.

Ladies Day is the most popular day in late June consisting some competitive Class 4 and Class 5 handicap hurdles and chases.
