Newmarket has shaped the horse racing odds for centuries
One in three jobs in Newmarket is related to horse racing. The town is home to over 3,000 race horses. Over 50 trainers ply their trade there and 60 stud farms are located in the market town. The National Horseracing Museum is even located there – Newmarket IS horse racing.
Racing in Newmarket has been traced back as far as 1174, a year in which William the Lion was captured at the Battle of Alnwick and Henry II occupied parts of Scotland.
In fact, Newmarket became the first known race track of the postclassical era, also known as the middle ages.
The small market town in Suffolk has a tradition that many cities would struggle to match and Newmarket prides itself on being the centre of the horse racing universe.
Plenty of betting opportunities come about thanks to Newmarket
Each year Newmarket racecourse opens its doors for 38 days of the year and with nine Group 1 races held over both the Rowley Mile Course and the July Course, the finest horses in Flat racing keep heading back to Newmarket each year.
