The Cambridgeshire Meeting comes to its climax on Saturday with the key race, the famous bet365 Cambridgeshire Heritage Handicap. The race, which is the first leg of the historic Autumn Double (the second being The Cesarewitch at Future Champions Festival), is an amazing spectacle to behold as thirty horses thunder up The Rowley Mile. Plus don't miss our final day of the beer festival and our first ever stand up comedy show!
There are also two Group 1 races including the Juddmonte Cheveley Park Stakes and the Juddmonte Middle Park Stakes. Leading horses from the Middle Park Stakes sometimes go on to compete in the following season's QIPCO 2,000 Guineas.
It’s not just the high quality of the horseracing that makes the Cambridgeshire Meeting so special. Newmarket’s fantastic Real Ale Festival, which runs throughout the meeting, showcases some of the best brews from the local area and further afield. There will be dozens of real ales and ciders for racegoers to sample plus live music and much more! Plus don't miss our first ever stand up comedy club!
