There has been racing at Gosforth Park for over 350 years.
This is Newcastle Racecourse’s first season as part of the All-Weather Championships. The £12 million conversation of its turf flat course into a world class Tapata surface means there is now an all-weather track in the North.
This will help be of particular support to owners, trainers and jockeys wanting to run flat horses through the winter months.
The new tapeta track was opened in May 2016 and has received wide spread praise from jockeys and trainers an excellent, fair and safe racing surface.
In 2017 Newcastle will host 62 fixtures, 51 all-weather flat and 11 National Hunt. The all-weather track provides horses with the chance to experience a wide galloping track, including the only one mile all-weather straight course in the world.
