The Newmarket Open Weekend has been renamed the ‘Henry Cecil Open Weekend’ to celebrate the life of the iconic and much-loved trainer.
This year’s Henry Cecil Open Weekend will take place on Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd September and is set to be an action packed two days. During the Open Weekend visitors will get the chance to see some of the world’s best racehorses on Warren Hill Gallops, tour a number of Newmarket’s finest equine sites, go racing at the Rowley Mile racecourse, and visit the yards of leading Newmarket trainers.
Newmarket racehorse trainers open their doors to celebrate the life of Henry Cecil and to raise money for local charities. The Henry Cecil Open Weekend is a fantastic opportunity to visit the town of Newmarket and go behind the scenes at Horse Racing’s HQ.
Equines sites open during the weekend; British Racing School, Jockey Club Rooms, Tattersalls Bloodstock Auctioneers, Newmarket Equine Hospital, National Stud, and the National Heritage Centre for Horseracing and Sporting Art.
