newmarket Racecourse

For the past 350 years Newmarket has been regarded as the "Headquarters" of British horseracing. The track is split into two flat courses, The Rowley Mile and the July Course which host 27 race days per year between April and October. The racing season starts with the Craven Meeting in April and then the first "classics" in the 1000 and 2000 Guineas in May both on the Rowley Mile, before moving to the July Course for the summer including the July Cup and Falmouth Stakes at the July Meeting. The season comes to a close in October with two big handicaps the Cambridgshire and the Cesarewitch Handicap.

  • Overview
  • Rowley Mile Course
  • July Course

Newmarket is known in racing as ‘Headquarters’ and has two Flat racecourses, the Rowley Mile and the July Course. Racing takes place on the Rowley Mile in April and May before the action switches to the July course in midsummer before returning to the Rowley Mile for the autumn. Both courses have long, wide straight tracks and the intensive local horse population ensures that competitive action is staged right through the Flat season from April through to October.

The main races at Newmarket include the Classic trials, the Craven Stakes and Nell Gwyn Stakes, at the April Craven Meeting, then the first Classics of the year in the 1000 and 2000 Guineas in May, the July Cup and Falmouth Stakes at the July meeting, and the top juvenile races, the Middle Park Stakes, Cheveley Park Stakes, Dewhurst Stakes and Fillies Mile in the Autumn back on the Rowley Mile with two October fixtures hosting big handicaps in the form of the Cambridgeshire and Cesarewitch.
