Newmarket Racecourse Events & Fixtures

Newmarket races today at Newmarket Racecourse

Opening in 1667, Newmarket races today owes a lot to King Charles II even though the sport of horse racing in the area predates him. After the Restoration of the Monarchy in 1660 following the English Civil War and Commonwealth period, he inaugurated the Newmarket Town Plate over 3m 6f, a race still run on Newmarket heath to this very day.

The introduction of Classics in the 2000 Guineas (1809) and 1000 Guineas (1814) during the Napoleonic Wars, where horses still played their part in cavalry charges across the Channel in France and the Iberian peninsula, cemented the link between Newmarket and horse racing. Although not as old as The Derby and Oaks at Epsom races or St Leger at Doncaster, their history still dates back over 200 years.

Configuration of Newmarket Races Today

There are two tracks used for thoroughbred horse racing under Rules at Newmarket. The Rowley Mile, which is the course use for spring and autumn meetings, is quite testing despite being straight unless a race goes beyond a mile-and-a-quarter. There is a famous dip near some bushes two furlongs from the winning post which can unbalance horses.

Over the summer, meanwhile, the July Course is in use at Newmarket Racecourse. This is less undulating than the Rowley Mile but the horses taking to it will often need to act on good or even good to firm ground. There is a bend for horses to take much nearer the finish on the July Course too, but it’s still best suited to galloping types.

Key Newmarket Racecourse Fixtures – Five Major Meetings

There are plenty of Newmarket horse races today with meetings most weeks from April through until mid-autumn. It’s a busy track but that is no surprise given its place in the world of horse racing and nickname. There are five major meetings among Newmarket races today that are most significant. See those in the table below:

Newmarket Racecourse Events Feature Races When
Craven Meeting Craven Stakes, Nell Gwyn Stakes April
QIPCO Guineas Festival 2000 Guineas, 1000 Guineas April / May
July Festival Falmouth Stakes, July Cup July
Cambridgeshire Meeting Cheveley Park Stakes, Middle Park Stakes September
Future Champions Festival Fillies Mile, Dewhurst Stakes October

Craven Meeting

The first races at Newmarket today of the calendar year in the middle of April is the Craven Meeting. Usually in midweek on three consecutive days from Tuesday to Thursday after the Grand National at Aintree, events on the undulating Rowley Mile include Classic trials for the Guineas Festival.

These are the Nell Gwyn Stakes for fillies and Craven Stakes for colts and geldings. Both hold Group 3 status alongside the Abernant Stakes, a sprint contest open to older horses, and the Earl Of Sefton Stakes. With only the 10-furlong straight in use here, the table below lists all of the Craven Meeting black types races:

Craven Meeting Races Class of Race Type of Race Race Distance
European Free Handicap Listed 3yo Flat Handicap 7f
Earl Of Sefton Stakes Group 3 Flat Race 1m 1f
Nell Gwyn Stakes Group 3 3yo Flat Race 7f
Abernant Stakes Group 3 Flat Race 6f
Craven Stakes Group 3 3yo Flat Race 7f
Feilden Stakes Listed 3yo Flat Race 1m 1f

QIPCO Guineas Festival

Perhaps the most famous of Newmarket races today, the 2000 Guineas and 1000 Guineas hold Classic status. Open to three-year-old colts and fillies, respectively, these age restricted Group 1 races have special significance for the future of the Flat thoroughbred racehorse in Europe.

From 2022 onwards, the QIPCO Guineas Festival over the May Day Bank Holiday Weekend is a three-day meeting. The opening day, now a Friday, sees Epsom Derby hopefuls run in the Newmarket Stakes with the Group 2 Jockey Club Stakes for older horses headlining the card.

As tradition demands, the Saturday builds to the 2000 Guineas – a straight mile contest on the Rowley Mile. Supporting Newmarket horse races today include the Group 3 Palace House Stakes, another sprint, and the Suffolk Stakes Heritage Handicap.

Fillies and mares are in the spotlight on the third and final day of the Guineas Festival. Supporting the 1000 Guineas is the Pretty Polly Stakes, an early trial for the Epsom Oaks and other middle-distance events for three-year-old females. The Group 2 Dahlia Stakes, meanwhile, gives older fillies and mares a run over nine furlongs. Check out all black type Newmarket Racecourse events during the Guineas Festival here:

July Festival

The July Course, used for Newmarket Racecourse events over the summer, is a right-handed and undulating track that suits galloping types. Races up to a mile are on the straight and uphill all the way. They call this the Bunbury Mile. Longer distance events involve a downhill run to the home turn with a sharper bend than the Rowley Mile course.

Chief among all the Newmarket races today on the July Course is the July Festival held in the second week of that month on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. This is three weeks after Royal Ascot and before the Irish Oaks Weekend. The opening day of this meeting includes a St Leger trial in the Bahrain Trophy, plus the July Stakes for two-year-olds.

Fillies that ran in the 1000 Guineas can return to Newmarket for the Group 1 Falmouth Stakes on the second day of the July Festival and take on their elders. The July Cup, meanwhile, headlines the final day of the meeting with top sprinters taking part over six furlongs. Get a list of all the big July Festival races in the table below:
