Situated just 10 miles south of Exeter Racecourse, Newton Abbot Racecourse is a flat, oval, tight, left-handed circuit of about 1m 1f that favours the handy type.

There are seven fences to a circuit and a very short run-in.

The Devon racecourse offers views from the Course and Paddock Enclosures, alongside the Family Enclosure situated in the centre of the course. Download our 2018 Brochure for more information.
