Everything You Want to Know About Newbury
After opening in 1905, Newbury has firmly established itself as one of England’s most prestigious dual-purposes racecourses, hosting a fantastic selection of high-profile races on both the flat and over jumps.
Its courses are big and galloping in nature, with the round course measuring two miles in length, whilst it also has a straight course where races between five furlongs and one mile are run. Notable races on the flat include the Greenham Stakes, the Fred Darling Stakes, and the Mill Reef Stakes. The main race of the flat season is the Group 1 Lockinge Stakes, which has been won by star-milers like Frankel and Canford Cliffs.
The big meeting of the jumps season is the Ladbrokes Winter Festival, with the highlight being the Ladbrokes trophy which has won by Cheltenham Gold Cup winner Native River in recent seasons. The same horse has also won two Denman Chases, a race which is part of Newbury’s important Cheltenham trials day in February.
