Newmarket, Suffolk Return to Events Listings
The ROA are delighted to announce that, following last year’s very enjoyable visit, there will be a second chance for members to experience an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of Dalham Hall Stud. Home to recent Derby winner Golden Horn, who proved a very friendly hit with visitors last year, as well as a host of top-notch stallions including Dubawi, Helmet and Iffraaj, and newcomers Territories and Toormore, there really is something for everyone.
Taking place on Wednesday, April 19, the trip will commence from Newmarket racecourse, where a coach ride will take attendees to the stud. A welcome drink and talk will then precede the chance to watch stallions parade, before the coach takes members on a well-informed tour of the stud itself, before returning to Newmarket racecourse.
The visit will take place in the morning, enabling members and their guests to stay in Newmarket for a fantastic afternoon’s racing that includes Classic pointers in the Lanwades Stud Nell Gwyn Stakes, and potential top miler title contenders in the bet365 Earl of Sefton Stakes. Admission to the races will be complimentary to ROA members, via either the Racecourse Badge Scheme for Owners, or the ROA/JCR Admission Scheme, whichever is applicable.
Limited to 50 places, this visit is sure to be a sell-out, so priority will be given to those who did not attend the trip last year. Members will be allowed to bring one guest each, and are advised to book early by emailing email@example.com or by calling 0207 152 0200.
