Newbury Racecourse Events & Fixtures

Newbury today

The horse racing at Newbury today in the Greenham area dates back to the early Twentieth Century. Go back a further 100 years to 1805 and you’ll find the first record of Newbury races on Enborne Heath. This is an area steeped in thoroughbred history with the course just a 15-mile drive southeast from the equine hub of Lambourn.

With both jumps and Flat action at Newbury races today, this reflects the rich tradition that the track has in both codes of the sport. While the prize money on offer has been criticised sometimes, it remains a venue that top trainers want to run and test their horses at.

Configuration of Newbury Races Today

A flat, left-handed galloping track where both National Hunt and Flat meetings take place, it’s in use for racedays across both codes of horse racing throughout the calendar year. There is a long home straight at Newbury. On the round course, the run-in is over half-a-mile from the winning post.

Sprint races on the Flat over five, six and seven furlongs, and mile races take place mainly on the straight course. Newbury races today have the option of running events on the round mile or using a chute for seven-furlong contests. A complete circuit of the round course, meanwhile, is longer than a mile-and-three-quarters but not quite two miles.

For hurdle races, there are seven flights in races at Newbury today with horses taking four down the back straight and three more after turning for home on a full lap. This means there are 10 jumps in hurdle races over two-and-a-half miles. Steeplechases contain 11 fences on a complete circuit, however, and they’re pretty stiff.

Open ditches lie as the second obstacle in lines of five down the back and home straight. There is a cross fence to jump five from home, which can make or break a horse’s chances despite being three-quarters of a mile from the line. The water jump just before the winning post is only jumped when there is at least one full circuit of the track left.

On the final lap, horses cut away from this obstacle, even though many are tempted to jump it and go around again! This means there are 21 fences taken in the big betting steeplechase at Newbury Racecourse, the Ladbrokes Trophy

Big Races at Newbury Today & Throughout the Year

Like Ascot and Sandown Park races, which are also southwest of London, Newbury horse racing today is home to both a Grade 1 race over jumps and a Group 1 Flat race. During the winter months, there are three major National Hunt meetings. The biggest of these is the two-day Winter Carnival on the last Friday and Saturday in November.

The Ladbrokes Trophy, formerly the Hennessy Gold Cup, is the big race of that meeting. Just after Christmas in December, horse racing at Newbury today on the 29th has the Grade 1 Challow Novices’ Hurdle as the feature contest. Super Saturday is a fantastic day of Newbury Racecourse action in February.

On the Flat, meanwhile, there are some important Classic Trials in the spring, the feature Lockinge Stakes in May, and then Group 2 events over the summer and autumn such as the Hungerford Stakes in August and Mill Reef Stakes for juveniles in September. There’s more about the big fixtures of Newbury races today in the table below…
