MEDIA RELEASE – 14 SEPTEMBER 2023 NEWCASTLE RACECOURSE 2023 SPRING RACING CARNIVAL
Newcastle Racecourse is gearing up for an exciting two days of racing with its Spring Racing Carnival including Sharp Office Newcastle Gold Cup Day tomorrow (Friday 15th September) and Charlestown Square Ladies Day this Saturday 16th September.
The final fields have been confirmed for both days with the $300,000 Newcastle Gold Cup attracting a full field for the 2300m feature.
“To have a full field for our local Cup is an outstanding result” said NJC Chief Executive Duane Dowell.
“The Australian Bloodstock Cameron Handicap (1500m) and Yarraman Park Tibbie Stakes (1400m) have also brought together very classy fields to compliment a great day’s racing.”
“Overall, there is over $1 million in prizemoney offered on Cup Day”.
Newcastle trainers are well represented in the Newcastle Cup with the Kris Lees pairing of Cleveland and Kalapour sharing favouritism while the Mark Minervini trained Hosier is on the next line of betting.
“Wouldn’t it be fantastic to have a Newcastle trained trifecta in the race!” Dowell quipped. Saturday’s Charlestown Square Ladies Day is the day of fun and fashion with plenty of
activations on course including the TAB Glam Cam, Myer Beauty Bar, Hungerford Hill Wine Bar and the popular Charlestown Square Fashions on the Field.
“We expect great crowds for both days however bookings for Ladies Day have been particularly strong.” Dowell continued.
“And as an added feature, we’ll be showing the Knights V Warriors game from 4pm in areas around the course including in our large betting auditorium where we have two big screens set up for the day”
Tickets are still available online via newcastleracecourse.com.au with gates opening for the General Public at 11.30am for both days.
