Racing Returns to the Rowley Mile

 

The Gold Season, Newmarket Racecourses’ exciting autumn programme at The Rowley Mile, kicks off with Cesarewitch Trial Day.

 

On the track, there will be an exciting seven race card including the Cesarewitch Trial, a warm up for the Cesarewitch Heritage Handicap which takes place at Future Champions Festival, and is the second leg of the historic Autumn Double (the first being the Cambridgeshire Handicap).

The Garden Enclosure is not open for this race meeting.

 

THE HENRY CECIL OPEN WEEKEND

When Newmarket racehorse trainers open their doors to celebrate the life of Sir Henry Cecil and to raise money for local charities. The Henry Cecil Open Weekend, Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd September, gives visitors the rare opportunity to see behind the scenes at British horseracing’s HQ, meet the sport’s biggest equine stars, and enjoy two days of action packed entertainment. We will be celebrating all things racing with racing at the Rowley Mile Racecourse, tours for visitors at Newmarket’s integral equine sites, plus the chance to visit the yards of top trainers.
