Newmarket Racecourse

Newmarket has been recognised as the Headquarters of Racing for over 300 years. It is unique in having two complete and highly distinct racecourses - the Rowley Mile and the July Racecourse. The Millennium Grandstand which is based at the Rowley racecourse, is to undergo £3.5 million of modifications, bringing huge changes and improvements.

The Rowley Mile is named after King Charles II "Old Rowley" who founded the Newmarket meetings following his restoration to the throne in 1660. It hosts racing of the highest calibre during the Spring and Autumn, including two of the five classic races in early May: the Sagitta 1000 Guineas and the Sagitta 2000 Guineas. The big Autumn highlights are The Cambridgeshire Meeting and the superlative Champions Day.
