Newmarket Open Weekend

The Open Weekend gives visitors the unique opportunity to go behind the scenes at British horseracing’s HQ, enjoy two fantastic days of fun, and raise money for some very worthwhile charities.

2018 will see the return of racing on Saturday afternoon at the Rowley Mile racecourse after a one-year break. Racing is always a highlight of the weekend with several trainers bravely volunteering to step up to the microphone and take part in the annual NOW racing commentary challenge.

Over the course of the weekend many of the town’s most dedicated equine sites will also open their doors, including; Newmarket’s two leading veterinary hospitals, the National Heritage Centre, the British Racing School, Tattersalls, and the Jockey Club Rooms.

Sunday morning action will once again kick off on the iconic Tattersalls sponsored Warren Hill gallops, followed by a number of Newmarket’s top trainers opening their yards to the public. The popular Clipper Logistics racing personality show jumping competition will take centre stage for the afternoon’s entertainment on the Severals, alongside the Newmarket Stable Staff vs Jockeys & Trainers Football match, and much more.
