NEWCASTLE races has staged racing since 1882. Based at Gosforth Park north of the great city, the track racing both on the Flat and over jumps. In 2015/16 the course had an £11million redevelopment which saw a new all-weather surface replace the Flat turf track. On the Flat the highlight is the Northumberland Plate, famously known as the Pitmen’s Derby. The three-day June fixture also includes the Gosforth Park Cup and the Chipchase Stakes. Over jumps the Grade One Fighting Fifth Hurdle is the major highlight at Newcastle races. Past winners include Night Nurse, Sea Pigeon, Beech Road and most recently the reigning Champion Hurdler Buveur D’Air.
