From Glyndebourne to Glastonbury - A social calendar for the 21st century
The Cambridgeshire Meeting
26 September, 2013 - 28 September, 2013
Newmarket Racecourse, Suffolk
This is an occasion to be enchanted and excited by as the Rowley Mile 'Course of Champions' sets the scene for world class racing action once again. Be seduced by the unique and utterly authentic experience of attending a great sporting event at the historic Home of Racing.
The quality of racing during the Cambridgeshire Meeting is exceptional, with a total of three Group 1s - the highest class of race - alongside one Group 2 race and three Group 3 races. Don't forget, the stunning spectacle that is the Betfred Cambridgeshire Handicap, one of British racing's most famous handicaps, and the race that the meeting is named after.
The opening day, Thursday, features the Group 3 Somerville Tattersall Stakes, a seven-furlong contest for two-year-olds. This race has been won by many fine horses, including Grand Lodge and Milk It Mick, who both went on to win the Group 1 Dewhurst Stakes, scheduled to take place on Dubai Future Champions Day
The Group 1 Shadwell Fillies Mile, a contest that see's many outstanding performers make their way to Classic glory the following year, cranks up the action on Friday! The card is packed with other high class races plus the ultra-competitive Silver Cambridgeshire Handicap for horses that didn't make the field for Saturday's big race, the Betfred Cambridgeshire Handicap.
Then we come onto what is unquestionably one of the highest class raceday's of Newmarket's season on Saturday. Be captivated by the drama of more than 30 horses hurtling up the Rowley Mile during the Betfred Cambridgeshire Handicap, as well as two stunning Group 1 events, the Kingdom of Bahrain Sun Chariot Stakes for older fillies, and the Jaguar Cars Cheveley Park Stakes, a race that often identifies Europe's best two-year-old filly over six furlongs.
