The Home of Horseracing
Newmarket hosts 39 race fixtures from April to November on two racecourses, the Rowley Mile and the July Course. Our season starts at the Rowley Mile with the bet365 Craven Meeting, followed by the hugely important QIPCO Guineas Festival.
The highlight of the spring season, the Guineas Festival hosts the first two classics of the season; the 2000 and 1000 Guineas. Our final meeting on the Rowley Mile is the Spring Meeting before we switch to the beautiful July Course for our summer season.
With a garden party atmosphere, the July Course is the perfect setting for our Summer Saturday fixtures along with our iconic Newmarket Nights and Summer Saturday Live music events. We have welcomed some excellent artists to the July Course stage including Kylie, George Ezra, and Craig David. The pinnacle of the summer season, however, is the Moët & Chandon July Festival. The three-day festival hosts our gorgeous Summer Ladies Day, Feel Good Friday and Darley July Cup Day, a spectacle of breathtaking fashion and world class horseracing.
We move back to the Rowley Mile for the autumn and our action packed Gold Season. Highlights include the Cambridgeshire Meeting, a three day meeting packed with Group racing alongside our annual beer festival. We then look forward to Dubai Future Champions Festival, our two day festival showcasing the future of Flat racing with some famous racing challenges.
