Next Meeting - Friday 3rd October - Youngs RPS Day
A Day at the Races
A warm and friendly welcome always awaits at Northumberland's only racecourse.
Situated 600 feet above Hexham the steeplechase course hosts 14 race meetings a year.
The season runs from spring to autumn with several weekend, bank holiday fixtures and popular evening meetings. A full list of the meetings can be found here.
Hexham Racecourse takes full advantage of a natural amphitheatre of sloping grass below the stands to provide superb viewing of racing as well as the magnificent surrounding countryside.
Excellent viewing areas are also provided for people with disabilities, with lift access to all parts of the stands.
Last Meeting - totepool Ladies Day - Read Meeting Report here
One of the highlights of the racing calendar and described by one commentator as the 'Ascot of the North'.
"totepool Ladies' Day" is always one of the most popular meetings of the year when the ladies of Tynedale prove that, whatever fashion show Royal Ascot can stage, Hexham can at least equal if not better.
This year there were prizes for Best Dressed Lady (photo), Best Hat, Best Dressed Couple and Best Dressed Little Miss, not to mention best looking jockey!
The prize winners are revealed in our full race meeting report.
Lesley Lister of Tyne Tees Models explained the fashion styles that the judges were looking for on our Ladies' Day videos page.
