Newmarket has been recognised as the Headquarters of Racing for over 300 years.

Some 3000 horses are in training in the immediate vicinity of this unique racing town, set in the heart of East Anglia, yet only sixty minutes from London by road or rail.

The historic racecourse, the Rowley Mile, is named after King Charles II "Old Rowley" who founded the Newmarket meetings following his restoration to the throne in 1660. The Rowley Mile Course has been home to the first two of the five great "classic" Races, the One Thousand Guineas and the Two Thousand Guineas, since 1814 and 1809 respectively, and also stages many other world famous races including The Champion Stakes on "Champions" Day. The Cesarewitch and The Cambridgeshire.
