The Piper-Heidsieck July Festival

 

Thursday 11th, Friday 12th & Saturday 13th July

The regions flagship social & stylish event and Newmarket’s glittering highlight – it’s the Piper Heidsieck July Festival.

The quality of the racing is exceptional on all three days and some of the finest thoroughbreds from around the globe compete for their share of approximately £1.2m of prize money and the ultimate glory in some of the European summer’s top races. Racegoers are encouraged to dress up in their finest clothes on all three days, to be in with a chance of winning in the ‘fashion stakes’.

Enjoy the unique garden party atmosphere of the July Course during this very special meeting - the fashions will dazzle, the world class racing will pulsate, the atmosphere will crackle...on these three summer days in July, there's only one place to be!

The racing is top class every day, with the peaks coming on Abu Dhabi Day (Friday) and Dalrey July Cup Day (Saturday), when the biggest races are staged.

The opening Thursday is Ladies Day, when the Princess of Wales’s Stakes is the feature race on another strong afternoon of racing.

Abu Dhabi Day on Friday features the Etihad Airways Falmouth Stakes, run over a mile and one of the season’s top races for three-year-old fillies and their elders.

This exceptional day also features the Irish Thoroughbred Marketing Cherry Hinton Stakes, a key race for two-year-old fillies, and the Abu Dhabi Harwood International Arabian Racing Stakes, one of the most important races for Purebred Arabian horses run in this country.

Saturday takes the excitement up one final notch with the running of the Festival’s dazzling centerpiece, the Darley July Cup. This scintillating six furlong contents is Europe’s premier sprint race that many of the world’s fastest thoroughbreds target, with victory often determining the identity of Europe’s sprinting champion.

The magical trees, the immaculate lawns, the warm sunshine (we hope!), the atmospheric bars and restaurants, the wonderful outfits and eye-catching hats, the magnificent thoroughbreds and the electric buzz of the betting ring....all play their part in making the Piper Heidsieck July Festival an absolute summer treat and an event that is gloriously and quintessentially British.

The Piper Heidsieck July Festival is also the focal point of a wider Newmarket Festival which sees a broad range of events taking place in and around the town.
