Newton Abbot Races

Newton Abbot Racecourse is a delightful, friendly, rural track that stages jump racing during the summer months, between April and October.

During these months, racing takes place regularly over the left-handed circuit that is little more than a mile in length. This is the most westerly course in England, and its proximity to the Devon coast means it attracts holiday-makers looking for a break from the beach.

Statistically, the fences at Newton Abbot races are the easiest to jump in the country and this, combined with the tight nature of the course, means horses that race handily are favoured.

Newton Abbot Races Tips

  • Runners trained by Paul Nicholls should always be respected at Newton Abbot Racecourse. The Ditcheat handler has an excellent record here.
  • Other West Country trainers such as Colin Tizzard, Philip Hobbs and David Pipe also thrive here, while Fergal O’Brien has a notable strike rate.
  • Richard Johnson and Sam Twiston-Davies enjoy plenty of success in the saddle at Newton Abbot races, but it is also worth noting horses ridden by Aidan Coleman.

The jockey's view

Bryony Frost
By Bryony Frost - Most successful female jump jockey in history

Newton Abbott Racecourse is the track that I've probably been around the most. It's a summer time track, completely flat and you can find the ground pulling up soft at the end of the season.

There's a relatively short run in with the last hurdle close to the line – jump that first and you’ll usually win. When you come past the post, the top bend is more of a square shape. The back for the chasers curves in and back out before the water so a direct line is to jump the first on the inside.

You can have winners come from lots of places, but the majority of the time it's a prominent track to ride. There’s a mound on the hurdle track that is good to get on because you can roll round a lot better. With a circuit to go you’ll see the pack bunch up, because alongside the riverbank side is when you start to move the race forward, it's hard to pin back if you’re not there.

Newton Abbot Races Behind Closed Doors

Newton Abbot races are currently being run behind closed doors because of the ongoing COVID-19 situation.

This is set to be reviewed and updated in line with government advice, with Newton Abbot races keen to welcome back punters as soon as it is safe to do so.

It’s still worth checking Newton Abbot races fixtures because the decision to allow spectators in could change. If you book tickets to a Newton Abbot Racecourse event that is then moved to behind closed doors, refunds will be processed through the official course website.
