If you’re looking for top class racing, packed with Classic clues, in one of the world’s great racing hotbeds, the Newmarket Gold Season has got you covered.
Pulling together the outstanding racing, sales and events taking place in the town of Newmarket from Saturday 21st September to Saturday, 12th October, The Newmarket Gold Season will feature 21 Pattern races, including five Group 1 contests, plus three Heritage Handicaps across four weekends of unmissable action.
At its heart is a two-year-old programme that sets the tone for the 12 months to come, as proven throughout this summer, when nine horses who either won or were placed during the 2018 juvenile Group races went on to subsequent Group 1 success.
These champions include Darley July Cup hero Ten Sovereigns, as well as Classic winners like Magna Grecia and Anthony Van Dyke, plus stars like Too Darn Hot and Advertise.
With this exceptional action taking place during a period that also includes the Henry Cecil Open Weekend and the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale, the Home of Horseracing is the place to be as we bring the curtain down on the Flat season.
