Winners and Past Results for the Newcastle Newmarket Handicap

Newcastle Newmarket Handicap

The Newcastle Newmarket Handicap is a Group 3, 1400 meter event held midweek in March at Newcastle Racecourse during the Sydney autumn racing carnival.

This quality handicap race offers $125,000 in prize money. The Newcastle racetrack in Newcastle, New South Wales second largest city, is a two hour drive from Sydney. It is located in the suburb of Broadmeadow, which sometimes lends it name to the racecourse. The Newcastle Newmarket Handicap is hosted by the Newcastle Jockey Club, which holds 26 Saturday meetings, as well as the carnivals, in autumn and spring. The race usually sees a good group of local gallopers take the field as well as a few interstate contenders looking to begin their autumn campaign in Sydney.

The lead up race to the Newcastle Newmarket Handicap is the 1300 M Group 3 Liverpool City Cup held at Warwick Farm Racecourse, in Sydney during the autumn racing carnival. It is held on the Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes Day. When looking at the Liverpool Stakes, you ought to consider the horses that didn't make the grade here, because if they do place here, they tend to go to other races with an increase of distance.

Horses who have performed well in the Newcastle Newmarket Handicap most often go on to compete in the 1300 M Group 2 Ajax Stakes, held usually at the end of March at Rosehill Garden Racecourse. Some may fancy their chances in the 1500 M Group 1 George Ryder Stakes, held in the beginning of April at Rosehill Racecourse.

2013 Newcastle Newmarket Handicap

Bello got away well and enjoyed a trouble-free run, not far from leader Famous Seamus, who had Mahisara and Laser Hawk for company. The pace was slow as the field continued their journey, with the positions of the front-runners pretty much unchanged as they came into the straight. On the run home, Laser Hawk made a dash for the lead and after a gap opened up on the rails, Bello was able to set out in pursuit. The pair fought it out to the finishing post with Bello getting the nod and claiming victory by a long head, while Famous Seamus never gave the game away, running on for third.
