The Newmarket Gold Season is a four-week period stretching across September and October encompassing the autumn highlights for town’s racing and breeding industry; the time of the year when Newmarket becomes the hub for the international horse racing industry.
As well as featuring four consecutive weekends of high-class racing at The Jockey Club Newmarket, including the Cambridgeshire Meeting and Dubai Future Champions Festival, The Newmarket Gold Season starts with the Henry Cecil Open Weekend and concludes with the end of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale, Europe’s premier yearling sale.
The Newmarket Gold Season showcases some of the world’s best and most valuable thoroughbreds in the sales ring, on the racecourse and at stud and promotes the town of Newmarket as a destination point throughout this four week period.
Clearly 2020 will be an unusual year with a number of the season’s events held virtually or behind closed doors, but in more normal times the estimated value to the local economy of The Newmarket Gold Season is more than £40 million.
