16th & 17th September 2017


Q: Is there disabled access?

A: Trainers yards are not normally open to the public, so would not reasonably be expected to have as good a set of facilities as a venue that is ( e.g. may not have disabled loos).

The Gallops on the Sunday morning would not be suitable for wheelchair access.

 The National Horseracing Museum and Tattersalls are both DDA compliant.

We do operate a disabled minibus free of charge, courtesy of the local MS Branch. We would also give a carer a free pass.

Q: Are dogs permitted?

A: Regrettably, dogs other than Guide Dogs are not allowed

Q:Where are the car parks situated?

 A: Parking for the weekend will be:


  • Tattersalls – Enter the Tattersalls premises via The Avenue in Newmarket. (Tattersalls Park Paddocks, The Avenue, Newmarket, CB8 9AU)


  • Severals – Located just off the roundabout at the top of the town, beside the Gallops. A shuttle bus service will be available from here.
  • Tattersalls – Enter the Tattersalls premises via The Avenue in Newmarket. (Tattersalls Park Paddocks, The Avenue, Newmarket, CB8 9AU)

Q: Where are the shuttle buses operating from? 

A: Shuttle buses will be running along a number of routes on Sunday, going approximately every twenty minutes.

Q: Can I bring a camera?

A: You are more than welcome to bring cameras, but please disable the flash where possible as sudden bright lights upset horses.

Q: I’m an annual badge holder, what does this mean?
