The Northumberland Racing Club
The Northumberland Racing Club is run as two clubs and has seen much success. The club is divided into NRC 1 with 2 horses and 30 shares and NRC 2 with one horse and 30 shares. Prize money is divided up and distributed between members at the end of each season.
NRC 1 includes: Total Assets and No Boundaries
Shares are available for a one-off annual payment of £750 for the period September 2017 to August 2018
NRC 2 includes: Nicki's Nipper
Shares are available for a one-off annual payment of £375 for the period September 2017 to August 2018.
We keep you updated by email on a regular basis and by other means for those of you who do not use email. Once schooling sessions are arranged you will be invited to come along and watch your horses work. We hold Open Days once or twice a year when members are invited to come and view all the horses in the yard. Badges for entry to the racecourse are allocated by rotation as are half price badges when we go beyond our allocation. So far we have never not been able to get everyone in.
We occasionally hire a box which we invite members to contribute towards and have found that we have been able to do this at a very reasonable cost to members.
Thank you very much for considering joining this club, we are all looking forward to an enjoyable year.

2008 M. Alflora – Maid Equal(Pragmatic) Owned by SWR Leased by NRC 1
After a superb first season in 2014 winning twice over hurdles for the NRC, she ran 2nd at Musselburgh in January 2015 albeit with a lot of encouragement. She was found to have fairly high grade ulcers which was obviously the reason for a below par season. We treated this with great success as she came back to win at Kelso over fences on 29th December over 3m2f in heavy ground. In 2016 she came back to win the same race again at Kelso. In 2017 she ran an excellent 2nd over hurdles at Wetherby carrying top weight and followed this up with probably her best run to date in a class 3 chase at Catterick.After a blunder at the last when leading, she made 3rd place and may well have won but for that blunder.
A Brilliant win at Kelso for Total Assets at the April 3rd meeting when everything went according to Callum Bewley's carefully thought out plan. He tracked the leaders and took it up at the last, was never headed and won by a clear 7 lengths. We enjoyed the excellent hospitality in our box with the bubbly kindly provided by Kelso Racecourse and are very grateful to the race sponsors The Newcastle Arms at Coldstream. This was her 4th win at Kelso, 2 chases 2 hurdles to add to her 5th hurdle win at Newcastle.
We think she likes Kelso!
From Kelso Total Assets went on to Carlisle where she produced possibly her most spectacular win to date. Having tracked the leaders all the way, Callum Bewley asked her to take it up at the bottom of the final hill and she just took off, winning by a very wide margin. This was her third win of the season, her best to date. She just keeps on improving.
The grand finale came at The Perth Festival in a very competitive (Class 3) 3m2 1/2f Hurdle. She was only half a length down on the eventual winner at the final hurdle and was running on to finish a very tight second. We couldn't have asked for more. The expression on Callum's face tells it all
Rated 119 over Hurdles
No Boundaries G (2012) Spadoun-Dawn Princess (Old Vic)
He has run in two National Hunt Flat Races in Ireland and looks the type to make up into a chaser.
Still waiting for his hurdles rating with the Handicapper having asked for a fourth run which he completed with a running on 4th at The Fighting Fifth Meeting over 2miles.
Nicki's Nipper- mare (July 2008) Denounce- Mistress Star
This mare looks to have provided her previous owners with a lot of fun over the past two years.
In 2016 she won twice over hurdles, over 2m 2f at Sedgefield, where the ground was good, and at Cartmel, good to firm in places. Both of these were Class 5 races. Since the start of her career she has been placed (2,3 or 4) 12 times.
As she has got older she continues to prefer good ground but thrives over the longer distances winning twice this year, once at Sedgefield in April over 3m3f in a Class 5 race and then again at Cartmel in July over 3m1,1/2 f in a Class 4 race.
She seems to run well when held up just behind the leaders.
Her most recent run was in October, an amateur riders' race at Stratford over 3m2f where she was 6/11 but the ground was good to soft and she pulled herself into the lead from the start and basically weakened towards the finish.
All in all she looks like a very good fun horse to have and shouldn't be far of another run.
Had her first outing today for the yard and NRC2 at the extra fixture put on by Musselburgh to make up for all the cancelled meetings we've had in the North.
Over fences, she jumped nicely but the going was a bit too fast for her and the grade possibly a bit high for her first outing, but it was the first opportunity we've had for a run so she should definitely come on and perform better in conditions more suited to her.
