Starting Stalls

The Craven Meeting

Wednesday 17th and Thursday 18th April 2013

Feel the tangible buzz of anticipation in the air - the season starts here at Newmarket!

This opening two day fixture, which is regards as the real start of the flat season by racing professionals, is where the country€™s top trainers unleash a host of potential equine stars.

Over the winter months, we are promised a mass of equine stars. With a tangible buzz of anticipation in the air, the Craven Meeting is the first opportunity to give these horses their first acid test, perhaps seeing those promises cruelly crushed...or perhaps immeasurably boosted.

Over the course of this meeting there are always lots of changes to the ante-post betting market for the season's first two Classic races, the QIPCO 2000 and QIPCO 1000 Guineas which take place on the Rowley Mile two and a half weeks later. This always adds another fascinating dimension to the Craven Meeting.

Wednesday's highlight is the Nell Gwyn Stakes, a key trial for the QIPCO 1000 Guineas, while Thursday's feature is the Craven Stakes, invariably a good trial for the QIPCO 2000 Guineas.
