Welcome to the Investor Relations area of the website. Newbury Racecourse PLC is the parent of a Group of companies which own Newbury Racecourse and engage in racing, hospitality and catering retail activities. The first class racing and leisure destination boasts the largest conference and events centre in Berkshire with over 3,800 sq. metres of event and exhibition facilities.
The Racecourse provides 29 race fixtures annually including 11 Jump racedays and 18 days Flat racing. In September 2012 the company completed a Joint Venture agreement with David Wilson Homes to undertake a major redevelopment of the racecourse as well as a housing development of 1,500 homes.
Newbury Racecourse has a long history, with the first recorded race taking place in 1805, although the company wasn’t officially formed until April 1904, when trainer John Porter proposed a new racecourse at Newbury. A chance meeting with King Edward VII resulted in the King’s support for the racecourse and it was approved by the Jockey Club. The first ever racemeeting took place in 1905.
Over a hundred years later people are still enjoying racing at Newbury Racecourse. Today the historic racecourse site is undergoing a multi-million pound redevelopment and it is a key part of the company’s strategy to become a vibrant leisure and events business with horseracing at its core. The racecourse runs its own nursery – The Rocking Horse Nursery, located within the site.
