Betfred Hurdle Series Final


Betfred kindly sponsored the Hurdle Series at Sedgefield for 2013/2014 culminating in the Class 2 Hurdle Final that took place on Friday 21st March 2014. The Hurdle Final carried a prize fund of £20k and the lucky winner was Getabuzz trained by Tim Easterby. We would like to thank Betfred for their valued support at Sedgefield Racecourse.


One of the highlights of the racing calendar here at Sedgefield is the Durham National race that will take place on Thursday 29th October 2015. This Class 3 Handicap (3 miles, 6 furlongs) race is sponsored by Sean Magee, a horse racing journalist who has a keen interest in the Durham National at Sedgefield and has agreed to sponsor this race for three consecutive years starting in 2012. With the prize money increasing from £15k last year to £20k this year, we are once again hoping to attract some of the leading owners, trainers and riders for this year’s renewal.

For more information on both the Hurdle Series and the Durham National please call our Clerk of the Course Sophie Barton on: 07944 105981.
