Stobart Rail Northumberland Plate Day

Sat 30 Jun

Stobart Rail Northumberland Plate Day

The Betfred Northumberland Plate Festival concludes with the Stobart Rail Northumberland Plate Day. This is the most famous race meeting of the year at Newcastle, featuring the Stobart Rail Northumberland Plate, a two mile heritage handicap worth £150,000, making it the richest two mile handicap in Europe.

The historic race previously known as the “Pitmen’s Derby”, formed the centrepiece of the holiday period known locally as “Race Week” for local mine workers. Today’s Plate Day attracts a diverse crowd of racegoers and many ladies treat it as the North-East’s version of Royal Ascot, but with a more relaxed and informal atmosphere.

As well as top class racing, there will be live music and entertainment throughout the day, check back for details as they are announced!
