Horse racing at Newmarket
Newmarket is known as the headquarters of British flat horse racing and is home to the largest cluster of training yards in the country. It hosts two of the country’s five Classic races, the 2000 Guineas and 1000 Guineas, which are the first of the season in that ordeer. The latter was won by Oh So Sharp in 1985, who went on to capture the fillies’ Triple Crown by landing the Oaks and St Leger. The mighty Frankel put in an astonishing display to land the 2000 Guineas in 2011, one of 14 successes in an unbeaten career which established him as one of the greatest racehorses of all time. Numerous other Group races are run at the track and it hosts a total of nine Group 1 races. Their are two courses at Newmarket, the Rowley Mile and the July Course, and racing has taken place at this venue for over 350 years.
