Haydock Park Racecourse Events & Fixtures

Haydock races today

Haydock Park opened as we know it today in 1899, although the roots of horse racing in the Newton-le-Willows area date back until at least the middle of the Nineteenth Century. Historically within the county of Lancashire, Haydock races today include both jumps and Flat events depending on the time of year.

One of two tracks in the Merseyside area of Liverpool and its environs owned by The Jockey Club alongside Aintree, it is one of the busiest racetracks in the UK. Much like Newbury races today, Haydock is home to both a Group 1 Flat race and Grade 1 National Hunt event.

The Jockey Club Racecourses

Haydock Park is among 14 English racecourses owned by The Jockey Club today. These are spread far and wide from East Anglia to Devon and even further north than Merseyside up into Cumbria. Check out all of The Jockey Club Racecourses track by track:

Configuration of Haydock Races Today

A left-handed course with a full circuit covering about a mile-and-a-half, there is also a six-furlong straight track for sprints. There are few if any undulations other than a slight rise on this flat track. Jumps races at Haydock today have some stiff fences for the horses contesting steeplechases.

Four of these come in the home straight with the second one down the chase track being an open ditch. Due to the busy schedule on the Flat, there is also an inner straight track again six furlongs in length. A Haydock Park afternoon meeting often clashes with class races at Ascot Racecourse down south, although both tracks serve different audiences.

Haydock races today still take place on heavy going, especially in the winter months of December, January and February. Ground conditions at the course even get like it earlier in the autumn sometime, so it’s not unusual for the feature Haydock Sprint Cup in September to be run on a testing surface. Drainage has always been a bit of an issue at Haydock Park, so bottomless ground does happen.

This venue also hosts the Betfair Chase, the first big race of the season over fences and opening leg of the Stayers Chase Triple Crown ahead of the King George VI Chase at Kempton and Cheltenham Gold Cup. That is in November with other major races and National Hunt meetings in January and February. Feature jump races at those fixtures include the Peter Marsh Chase and official Grand National Trial.

Big Races at Haydock Today & Key Meetings Throughout the Year

Haydock Racecourse Events Feature Race(s) When
Sky Bet Peter Marsh Chase Day Peter Marsh Chase January
Virgin Bet Grand National Trial Day Grand National Trial February

Betfred Last Fling Day Last Fling Chase Saturday after Christmas

Peter Marsh Chase Day

It isn’t long into the calendar year before major Haydock races today take place. Peter Marsh Chase day in January competes with the Clarence House Chase card at Ascot for top billing. There is a Grade 2 trial for the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival at this meeting on Merseyside, though, in the Rossington Main. The Champion Hurdle Trial and Altcar Novices’ Chase are no longer run. Here are details of the big races on the Peter Marsh Chase day card:

Virgin Bet Grand National Trial Day

With the official Grand National Trial taking place at Haydock in mid-February, even though the big race itself is at Aintree, there’s a certain irony to that. As trials for the world’s most famous steeplechase going, this Premier Handicap over fences has no record of producing winners.

That doesn’t stop the bookies shortening up horses that ran well at Haydock in the Grand National betting, though, and there are more Cheltenham trials on the supporting card. These include juvenile and staying hurdle races, plus a hunter chase. Get the lowdown on Grand National Trials day in the table below:

Temple Stakes Haydock Raceday

Moving on to the Flat, midway through May is the Temple Stakes raceday. These Haydock races today are all about sprint contests and getting horses ready to run at Royal Ascot the following month. Both the feature Temple Stakes and age restricted Sandy Lane Stakes have Group 2 status as the table below shows:

John Of Gaunt Stakes Day

Although it has fallen right at the end of May once before, the John Of Gaunt Stakes at Haydock Park races is most often held in June some seven days after the Epsom Derby is run. There are two Group 3 events on the card with the feature being one that honours the famous Duke of Lancaster. Also taking place here is the Pinnacle Stakes for fillies and mares, renamed in memory of legendary jockey Lester Piggott following his death. This is the John Of Gaunt card in full:

Lancashire Oaks & Old Newton Cup Day

Only the third of three consecutive race days at Haydock Park Racecourse in July during the Old Newton Cup Festival has a high-profile. With a card headlined by the Group 2 Lancashire Oaks for fillies and mares, a middle distance race and trial for the following month’s Yorkshire Oaks at York races, the meeting’s eponymous Old Newton Cup is the big betting handicap. Check out all races on this day below:

Rose Of Lancaster Carnival Ladies Day

There’s a two-day meeting of Haydock Park races in August grandly called the Rose Of Lancaster Carnival. While the Friday contains low-grade Class 4 and 5 action, Ladies Day on the Saturday is headlined by a Group 3 contest. This is the Rose Of Lancaster Stakes over an extended mile-and-a-quarter. Before the concept of Merseyside existed, Haydock Racecourse fell within the historic boundaries of Lancashire, the Red Rose county. Here is the full Ladies Day card:

Ros Of Lancaster Ladies Day Day Races Class of Race Type of Race Race Distance
London Mile Handicap Series Qualifier (0-95) Class 3 3yo+ Flat Handicap 1m

Haydock Sprint Cup Day

Following on from other Group 1s like the July Cup at Newmarket races and Nunthorpe Stakes during the Ebor Festival at York, one of the top-tier races in the Sprint Cup at Haydock Racecourse takes place in early September. A six-furlong race and established part of the pattern for thoroughbreds that are pure speed, it often throws up different results to the summer sprints due to softer ground. Here are all the races from the Haydock Sprint Cup card with supporting events including the Group 3 Superior Mile and the Old Borough Cup:

Haydock Sprint Cup Day Races Class of Race Type of Race Race Distance
Superior Mile Group 3 3yo+ Flat Race 1m 37y

Betfair Chase Day

While there are plenty of other meetings on Merseyside throughout the autumn and remainder of the year, the most famous of Haydock races today over jumps is the Betfair Chase. The big race and its card usually takes place on soft ground during the third or fourth Saturday in November after Cheltenham the week before and prior to the Newbury races at the Winter Carnival.

Betfred Tommy Whittle Chase Day

On the last Saturday before Christmas, Haydock Park races once again go head-to-head with Ascot with a jumps card. Headlining this meeting is the eponymous Tommy Whittle Handicap Chase over the Betfair Chase course and distance. Supporting the main event is a Listed mares’ novice hurdle at an intermediate trip.

The Betfred Last Fling Day

Rounding out the year at Haydock races today is the Betfred-sponsored Last Fling Chase card before the year is out.
