Newcastle Racecourse is home of the Newcastle Jockey Club and the social hub of Newcastle.
Racing is held 24 Saturdays a year, along with our Newmarket Race Day in March as part of our Autumn racing season and our 2 day Spring Racing Carnival in September. In 2019, we are excited to host the $1 million The Hunter Race Day – a standalone Saturday meeting in November.
Newcastle Racecourse hosts a number of other major race days including: the famous Boxing Day race meeting each December and the Pink Race Day in July to raise funds for the Hunter Breast Cancer Foundation.
In operation for over 100 years, the Newcastle Racecourse is the largest and premiere provincial club in NSW.
