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.

Northumberland Plate 2014


Two saucy little winners for the blog on Wednesday at Worcester when Able Deputy (A P McCoy, 5/6 fav) & Hannah Just Hannah (Mr J Banks, 7/2 jf) both won. In fact it was almost four winners on the afternoon as Hollow Penny (R Johnson, 4/1) & Macarthur (Paul Moloney, 25/1) both marginally went down by ½ length.

Its another blogging first for me today as I haven’t actually been able to watch this particular fixture in full for about the last fifteen years as I’m usually traveling home from the holidays. However I’ve changed my dates this year so I’m looking forward to some Newcastle action today.

1.35 Newc- Short N Sweet (win).

2.05 Newc- Jack Luey & Grissom (e/w).

2.40 Newc- Body And Soul (e/w).

5.00 Newc- Erroneous (e/w).

There is some added onus on three of these selections today as G1 Racing Trends have agreed to give any winnings to the New Beginnings Horse Charity. I really hope I can put some extra coffers in their pot.
