RACING IN FULL BLOOM

 

There’s nothing quite like an afternoon on Newmarket’s picturesque and historic July Course and as the summer arrives, all eyes turn to The July Festival.

 

Running from Thursday to Saturday, the festival is packed full of Group racing, with the feature race the Group One July Cup on the Saturday. Run over six furlongs, the July Cup is one of the most valuable and prestigious sprint races in the world and horses often travel from Australia and America to stake their claim.

 

Friday is headlined by a top-level contest in the form of the Group One Tattersalls Falmouth Stakes for fillies and mares over a mile. The race offers the first high-profile opportunity for the top three-year-old fillies to test themselves against older rivals and is regularly one to savour.

 

Day one is ‘Ladies Day’ and as one of THE dates in the social calendar offering thrilling racing and fabulous sustainable fashion in equal measure. The seven-race card is headlined by the Group Two Princess of Wales's Tattersalls Stakes over a mile and a half and boasts some high-profile previous winners, including Ascot Gold Cup winner Big Orange in 2015 and 2016. Off the track, the Sustainable Style Awards gives racegoers the opportunity to walk away with a prize of their own.
