What Is Newbury Famous For?
The first Newbury Races were held west of the town in Enborne Heath in 1805 although they soon moved to Woodhay Heath. Work began on Newbury Racecourse in 1904 before its first meeting in September 1905.Newbury hosted its first National Hunt race the following year and it has become one of Britain's leading tracks in both codes, helped by its proximity to top training base Lambourn. It holds around 10 jumps fixtures in the winter and 20 summer flat meetings.
Newbury Racecourse Track Specifics
Newbury is a left-handed flat oval around a mile and seven furlongs (3000m) in length. With two very long straights and two long sweeping bends, it is a great galloping track.There is a mile (1600m) straight course which does have some undulations but it is also a fair test with little draw bias.
Biggest Meetings at Newbury Racecourse
The flat highlight is the Lockinge Stakes which now coincides with Ladies Day in late May. The one-mile contest for older horses is the track's only Group 1 and there is a DJ-led party to round off proceedings.The two-day Winter Carnival at the end of November (or start of December) is the jumps standout with the Grade 3 Ladbrokes Trophy, previously known as the Hennessy Gold Cup, one of the top handicap chases of the season. The lucrative Grade 2 Long Distance Hurdle is also on the card.
