Newcastle Newmarket Handicap

The 2018 Newcastle Newmarket Handicap is a Group 3 race that takes place at Newcastle racecourse in March each year.

Run over a distance of 1,400 metres, the Newcastle Newmarket Handicap is run as part of the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.

The race, which takes place midweek, is run under quality handicap conditions and is worth $150,000 in prize money.

The Newcastle Newmarket Handicap was first run in 1988 when it was won by a horse named Lucky Rass. Horses that run in the Newcastle Newmarket Handicap each year have typically come via races such as the Group 3 Liverpool Stakes.

Those horses that perform well in the race then often go on to the Group 2 Ajax Stakes and the Group 1 George Ryder Stakes later in the carnival.

The Newcastle Newmarket Handicap attracts predominantly local gallopers, as well as interstate horses that are looking to begin their autumn racing campaigns in the Sydney.

Notable winners of the Newcastle Newmarket Handicap include Magic Road (1996), Zabarra (2003), Soho Flyer (2009) and Keeping The Dream (2011).
