Newcastle Racecourse
High Gosforth Park,



We appreciate that owning and training a racehorse is not only a sport but also a passion. As well as improving the raceday experience we are continually making capital investments to ensure that our track surfaces are in as good a condition as possible. We will also do what we can to look after your horse while they are racing at our racecourses and aim to provide excellent veterinary care while they are with us.
