Newcastle Racecourse - Statement


11 December 2022

Managing Director of ARC's Racing Division, Mark Spincer said, “Following the abandonment of racing at Newcastle yesterday, the team continued to undertake deep work across the track, whilst temperatures dropped to between -3 and -4 degrees overnight.  Further inspection early this morning, alongside BHA Racecourse Inspectorate, shows the track is in the same position as yesterday, hence the early abandonment of today’s meeting.

Whilst the maintenance of the track at Newcastle has continued to follow all of the standard procedures throughout this period, there is further investigation to be done into the surface and sub surface. This work will commence immediately alongside the manufacturer and BHA as well as colleagues from ARC’s other Tapeta based racecourses. Again, we would like to apologise for the inconvenience that this has caused everyone involved.”
