What is Newcastle Racecourse Famous For?
The first Newcastle Races were held in Killingworth just east of High Gosforth Park in 1621. A century later, Town Moor north of town started hosting races including the first Northumberland Plate in 1833. Racing was moved to its current location in 1882 with the first jumps card held in 1951.
The turf flat course was replaced by a floodlit Tapeta all-weather track in 2016. This has proved to be hugely successful with John Gosden's Enable and Stradivarius winning Newcastle maidens on the way to superstardom.
Newcastle Racecourse Track Specifics
Newcastle is a left-handed flat triangular track with sweeping turns. It is a mile and six furlongs (2600m) long with the all-weather bordering the jumps track. There is also a straight mile all-weather track which Gosden has called “a proper fair test”.
It is a course for gallopers and a long four-furlong (800m) home straight means stamina is an asset with jockeys often playing a waiting game before committing for home.
Biggest Meeting's at Newcastle Racecourse
The three-day Northumberland Plate Festival remains the track's biggest meeting in late June. The feature, the historic two-mile (3200m) handicap, is on the Saturday along with the Group 3 Chipchase Stakes over six furlongs (1200m).
The Grade 1 Fighting Fifth Hurdle in late November or early December is the season highlight overjumps and the first serious outing for Champion Hurdle contenders.
