Southwell Racecourse Fixtures & Events

Southwell races today

You need to go back to the Nineteenth Century for the first recorded horse racing in and around Southwell near Newark in Nottinghamshire. Burgage Green in the market town was the site of informal races during the mid-1800s. Popularity increased with the expansion of the railway network. By 1886, a new course needed laying out along the Ropewalk. This was short-lived, however, as the track crossed public roads.

Safety fears and concerns prompted a change of scene. The current venue used by Southwell races today opened in 1898 outside the town near Rolleston Junction railway station. A propensity for the track flooding led to the introduction of All-Weather Flat racing in 1989 when an artificial fibresand surface was laid down. Races at Southwell today thus covered both the National Hunt and Flat codes.

The course had to close for over two months at the end of 2012 and beginning of 2013 after torrential winter rain caused serious floods. In 2021, a change of surface to the All-Weather track saw tapeta, an aggregate of sand, wax and fibre, replace fibresand underfoot. There is no major event staged at Southwell Racecourse but it did host the Great Yorkshire Chase in 2007 when Doncaster races closed for redevelopment.

Other Tracks in the Area

There aren’t many racecourses in the East Midlands. The nearest track to Southwell is Nottingham, some 14 miles to the southwest. That only hosts Flat racing on the turf, however, so the closest National Hunt venues are Market Rasen races in Lincolnshire, 40 miles to the northeast, and Doncaster in South Yorkshire, about the same distance north. The latter is a dual purpose venue like Southwell races today.

The only other course within the geographical East Midlands region are Leicester races at Oadby, another Flat and jumps venue some 45 miles to the south. They are the only tracks within a 50-mile radius of Southwell Racecourse, so it enjoys plenty of racedays free from immediate competition close by.

In this respect, things are quite different to another All-Weather Flat and National Hunt cross-codes course in Kempton Park races, which has plenty of other nearby horse racing destinations to contend with. These include Sandown, Epsom and Ascot. Races at Southwell today go on all year round with the artificial surface helping scheduled meetings to go ahead.

Configuration of Southwell Races Today

The All-Weather course at Southwell is on the outside of the National Hunt track. A flat and left-handed oval, a full circuit is about a mile-and-a-quarter round. There is a separate straight course for sprints over the flying five furlongs. This joins the main All-Weather track roughly three furlongs from the winning post.

As the jumps course is on the inside, this is only about a mile all the way round. There are just five flights of hurdles on a complete circuit of Southwell races today with three taken down the back and two at opposite ends of the home straight. The run-in from the final flight to the line is roughly a furlong.

Steeplechases take place over portable fences, meanwhile. There are seven on a full lap of Southwell Racecourse with four in the back straight, the last being the only open ditch on the track, and three more after turning for home. Although their precise placing may vary due to rail movement, the final fence is again about a furlong from the post.
