Newcastle Racecourse is set in Gosforth Park, just to the north of the city that shares its name. It’s a venue for racing throughout the calendar and is well supported by the keen sports fans of the area.
Several high-quality jump races are held at the track. The Fighting Fifth Hurdle, run each November, is a recognised staging post on the road to Cheltenham for potential Champion Hurdlers.
The Eider Chase, a four-mile test in February, is often run on searching ground and is a genuine test of stamina for possible Grand National runners.
Since 2016, flat racing at Newcastle has taken place on an all-weather tapeta surface. This has allowed Newcastle races to stage regular floodlit fixtures, but the big flat race each year is still the Northumberland Plate.
Formerly known as the Pitmen’s Derby, this two-mile handicap attracts a big field and huge crowds to the track.
