New Year's Day at Southwell Racecourse is back!

Blow away the NYE fog and join us for our ever-popular New Year's Day fixture at Southwell races, the perfect solution to keep the festivities and New Year's eve celebrations going by enjoying a day at the races with friends and family.

We’ve got an action-packed card of live horse racing on the all-weather surface for you to enjoy, featuring the highlight of the afternoon an All-Weather Championship Fast Track Qualifier Race!

A horse can gain a free and automatic place for Finals Day at Newcastle (15th April, Good Friday) by winning a Fast-Track Qualifier. There are just 4 Fast-Track Qualifiers in each category. For more details about Fast-Track Qualifiers and the All-Weather Championships visit
