Newcastle is the premier racecourse in the North East, where they have been racing horses for over 350 years. Newcastle is a dual purpose course, and was purchased by Northern Racing in 1994, since then their has been considerable investment in facilities at the racecourse, and it is a very pleasant course to visit.
The Jumps course at Newcastle is run inside the flat course, and it many ways the course is very similar to Cheltenham in that it is a galloping left handed track with a long uphill run-in and some very stiff fences, which finds out any horses with stamina doubts. The course is a mile and a quarter and has ten fences per circuit.
