All-Weather Championships Launch Day

Tue 23 Oct

Join us for the 2018-19 All-Weather Championships season launch day. The 2017-18 season concluded seven months ago with the Season Finale here on Good Friday. The star performer of the day, Gronkowski (pictured), has gone on to finish a close second in the Belmont Stakes in America, and may soon go one better in a worldwide stakes race. Get ready to witness more high class performers make their mark on the Newcastle Tapeta during this season's All-Weather Championships.

Launch Day this year again features a Fast-Track Qualifier, which means the winner of the race gains a guaranteed and free entry to the category championships on Finals Day 2019.
