Newcastle Racecourse Events & Fixtures

Newcastle races today

Established at Gosforth Park in the early 1880s, Newcastle Racecourse is quite different today with horse racing on Tyneside certainly predating that. The Northumberland Plate is a truly historical race that’s even older than the course, going back to at least 1833.

That is the biggest Flat event among Newcastle races today and holds Heritage Handicap status. Part of a three-day meeting towards the end of June, Newcastle switched to an All-Weather Flat track from turf in 2016. The course is also home to a Grade 1 National Hunt event, the Fighting Fifth Hurdle, making it an ideal venue for racegoers in the Northeast.

Configuration of Newcastle Races Today

There are both All-Weather Flat race meetings and Jump races at this fair track. The biggest race days and National Hunt events are the Fighting Fifth Hurdle in November, the first Grade 1 lead-up race en route to the Champion Hurdle at Cheltenham, and Eider Chase in February, a handicap race considered a trial for the Grand National at Aintree.

The round course, both All-Weather and turf, has a circuit of about a mile-and-three-quarters. There is an uphill finish to the left-handed and otherwise flat turf track. Newcastle Racecourse today also has a straight mile All-Weather course with the final four furlongs on the ascent.

For steeplechases, there are open ditches in both the back straight (the second of five fences) and home straight (first in a line of four). There is a short run-in from the back of the final hurdle or fence to the finish line. Horses have to get that last jump right, then, because there isn’t much time to recover from blunders or mistakes. There are seven hurdles and 10 fences per circuit.

Biggest Events at Newcastle Races Today & Throughout the Year

Newcastle Racecourse’s four biggest race meetings are spread throughout the annual horse racing calendar. They include both All-Weather and jumps fixtures that fans of horse race betting can wager on. From the Eider Chase day in February to the Fighting Fifth card in late November (which can even fall in December), this is one of the busiest racecourses in the UK, because the Flat horse racing fixtures can take place in almost any conditions.

Newcastle is also now the host venue for the All-Weather Finals day on Good Friday during at the start of the four-day Easter weekend. These are the championship and major races following a number of qualifiers on artificial surfaces.

Key Newcastle Racecourse Fixtures Type of Races Feature Race When
Eider Chase Day National Hunt Eider Chase February
All-Weather Finals Day All-Weather Flat Easter Classic Good Friday
Northumberland Plate Meeting All-Weather Flat Northumberland Plate June / July
Fighting Fifth Hurdle Day National Hunt Fighting Fifth Hurdle November

Eider Chase at Newcastle

The first of big Newcastle races today in the year is the Eider Chase. This long-distance staying chase is run as a handicap over a distance of about four miles and a furlong, making it the third longest National Hunt race in terms of trip. Horses in the Eider Chase race pass the winning post three times. Only the Grand National around Aintree and Midlands Grand National at Uttoxeter races send horses over further. Let’s a look at the Eider Chase card in full:

These take place on Good Friday at the start of the long Easter weekend, so don’t have a fixed date like the other biggest events at the track.
