We’re inching ever closer to the flat season and what better way to get some insight ahead of the new campaign than with a visit to Somerville Lodge, the headquarters of the powerful William Haggas stable.
Discover Newmarket are offering the opportunity to visit this epic facility in the heart of Newmarket as part of their Feature Tour on the 16th March. This experience is a must for any racing fan with time spent watching the strings exercise on Warren Hill, before visiting the home of the likes of Sea of Class and what looks to be an exciting string of two-year-olds.
A three-time classic winning trainer, the team at Somerville Lodge enjoyed their best season yet last year amassing 160 winners and a record haul of prize money.
You’ll want to be on the Feature Tour to see this incredible yard but also because it includes a visit to the famed Jockey Club Rooms, a venue that boasts an incredible history and houses an impressive collection of art and memorabilia.
The Feature Tour also includes a stop at The Packhorse Inn, in the picturesque village of Moulton for a three-course lunch.
