Racecourse Information

The History

The town Moore hosted the first recorded Northumberland plate in 1833 and did so until 1881 when the famous race was moved to High Gosforth Park. 1882 saw the first running of the Plate at Gosforth Park with a new flat and chase course, new stand and stabling for 100 horses.

The estate developed over the years to include parklands, golf clubs, a nature reserve and a scout camp.

The Racecourse had fallen into some decay and was purchased in 1994 by Northern Racing, with that the estate saw an £11 million investment to all its facilities. In 2013 Arena Racing Company announced plans to change the flat turf course into an all-weather track while retaining a turf jumping racecourse. The new tapeta track was completed early 2016.

Newcastle Racecourse stages both flat and National Hunt racing.
