Saturday 5th May is about style and sophistication, exhilarating racing and awesome entertainment. The feature race, The QIPCO 2000 Guineas, is one of Newmarket’s Group 1 races, open to three-year-old colts and boasts an impressive roll of honour including the unforgettable Frankel. Join us to see history in the making!
Guineas Sunday, 6th May, is a fantastic day to be shared with family and friends. The highlight of the day will be the QIPCO 1000 Guineas, the Group 1 fillies Classic for three-year-olds, over a distance of one mile. This epic race is one of only two fillies-only Classics (the other being The Oaks) and will make for a thrilling and memorable day.
On both days there is also a whole host of free activities for everyone to enjoy. The Hyperion Lawn, is a great location for racegoers looking to socialise and meet up with friends. There will be music and live entertainment. And as it's bank holiday weekend, there's no excuse not to join us for our Après Racing after party following the last race on the Hyperion Lawn! All racegoers will get free entry to dance the night away with our special guests Reggie Yates (Saturday) and Duke (Sunday), who will be closing the QIPCO Guineas Festival with a 90-minute set.
