Newmarket Races

Newmarket is the headquarters of British flat racing. The town is steeped in the history of the sport and is home to plenty of trainers and thousands of racehorses.

The wide-open expanse of Newmarket Heath is actually home to two courses. The Rowley Mile hosts the first two classics of the season, the 1,000 Guineas for fillies and the 2,000 Guineas for colts, as well as a host of other prestigious races. These include the Cesarewitch, over two miles and two furlongs, which starts in Cambridgeshire and finishes in Suffolk.

However, for two summer months the action shifts to the aptly-named July Course. The biggest race here is the July Cup, one of the most respected sprint races in the world and the highlight of a three-day July meeting.

Newmarket Racing Tips

  • The wide, galloping expanses of the Rowley Mile make it ideal for the long-striding type - although there is a dip close to home which occasionally catches horses out.
  • The straight of the July Course is more undulating, but events over both courses at Newmarket races tend to be run at a true gallop and it’s essential that a horse stays every yard of the trip.
  • John Gosden and Charlie Appleby both train locally and have excellent records at Newmarket Racecourse, while among jockeys, William Buick and Frankie Dettori can boast outstanding strike rates.

Newmarket Races Behind Closed Doors

Newmarket races are currently being run behind closed doors because of the ongoing COVID-19 situation.

This is set to be reviewed and updated in line with government advice, with Newmarket Racecourse keen to welcome back punters as soon as it is safe to do so.

It’s still worth checking Newmarket races fixtures because the decision to allow spectators in could change. If you book tickets to a Newmarket Racecourse event that is then moved to behind closed doors, refunds will be processed through the official course website.
