Newbury is one of the biggest and best racecourses in the UK and currently plays host to a number of top class fixtures. Newbury is one of the best multi-purpose tracks in the country as it plays host to both Group 1 flat races and grade 1 National Hunt races over the obstacles. When it comes to the National Hunt season there is no doubt that the Hennessy Gold Cup at the end of November is the highlight of the winter. The Hennessy has been won by some legendary names like Denman and Arkle to name just two.
The Denman Chase in February is another big race at Newbury as it acts as a key trial race for the Gold Cup at Cheltenham the following month. The track itself held its first meeting back in 1905 and it has grown in strength ever since, with plenty more improvements to the track on the horizon in the next few years.
