Betfair Fighting Fifth 2022

Saturday 26th November 2022

The Fighting Fifth is one of the most prestigious hurdle races in the horse racing calendar. And you could be at one of the main events in Newcastle to see some of the finest hurdlers in the world duelling for this historic prize.

This is the first Grade 1 hurdle of the jumps racing season; it takes its title from the nickname of the Royal Northumberland Fusiliers.

The Fighting Fifth's winners' roll of honour is a Who's Who of hurdling greats. They include recent Champion Hurdlers Epatante and Buveur d'Air, as well as legendary names from horse racing's past such as Night Nurse and Sea Pigeon.

2021's renewal dramatically produced the first-ever dead heat, between Nicky Henderson’s hot favorite and defending champion Epatante, and one of the race’s outsiders Not So Sleepy.

The card also includes the Rehearsal Chase for leading stayers. So if you're wondering what's on in Newcastle, why not come along for one of the finest horse racing fixtures in the calendar in the North-East?

We'll have additional facilities open to make sure you'll have plenty of things to do at Newcastle while you enjoy top-quality horse racing action.
