The race was established in 1833 but today will see the very last “Pitman’s Derby” run on the turf. It’s a sad day for traditionalists but on the flip side it’s a great day for futurists. Only time will tell what will become of Newcastle Racecourse.
Today’s Newcastle fancies:
1.25 Newc- Geno (win).
2.00 Newc- Mattmu (e/w).
2.35 Newc- Shore Step & Demora (e/w).
