The biggest event in the north east racing calendar has been taking place in Gosforth.

It's the final day of the Northumberland Plate festival, which always attracts thousands of people to Newcastle Racecourse.

And this year's winner was Higher Power, ridden by jockey Tom Queally.

The trainer, James Fanshawe, has won the race before back in 1995.

Speaking after the win, jockey Tom Queally said:

Moments like this are important. It's a handicap that I've not had on my CV, so it's nice from my point of view.

Just to be hitting these Saturday winners, it makes people take notice, and I hope James and I can reap the rewards.
