The Newmarket Town Plate

Founded in 1664 (or 1665, accounts vary) by King Charles II, the Newmarket Town Plate was the first race of its kind to be staged under written rules.

It is contested on the Round Course, used only once a year for this event, over 3 miles 6 furlongs and finishing at the July Course winning post.

The 2014 Town Plate will be run on Saturday 23 August. To download the application form click here.
