The bet365 Craven Meeting - Thursday

Opens 11.50, First race 1.50, Last race 5.20

The bet365 Craven Meeting at Newmarket’s historic Rowley Mile kicks off the Flat racing season in earnest and is seen by many as a key fixture for those with aspirations to run in the first two Classic races of the year, the QIPCO 1,000 and 2,000 Guineas.

The final day features the highly regarded bet365 Craven Stakes. Run over one mile, this Group 3 contest is for three-year-old colts and geldings and is considered one of the key QIPCO 2,000 Guineas trials due to it being run over the same course and distance as the first Classic race of the year. In recent years, the Craven Stakes has been won by many emerging stars of the Flat including Toormore and Toronado.

Don’t miss the first chance to see some of the most exciting three-year-olds in the world make their seasonal debut. Why not make your day extra special by booking a table in our award-winning Champions Gallery Restaurant? It’s the perfect base to soak up all the excitement of a day's racing whilst enjoying unrivalled panoramic views of the course and exquisite Fine Dining.
