Come and join us for the highlight of our Flat racing season featuring some of Europe’s finest thoroughbreds going head-to-head on an unmissable day of equine action. Centred around the £350,000 Group 1 Al Shaqab Lockinge Stakes will be an outstanding seven-race card worth a total of £750,000. The famous Newbury after party will follow the racing action with live music from the Black Kat Boppers and Steve Carroll & Megan Rhodes into the evening.

The most recent renewal of the feature race saw 2014 2,000 Guineas winner Night of Thunder claim the second Group 1 victory of his career, and subsequent Royal Ascot winner Time Test and Hungerford Stakes winner Adaay were amongst the other winners on one of the greatest days of Flat racing ever staged at Newbury.

The last thoroughbred race will be at 5.35, followed by a race for purebred arabian horses at 6.05.

Witness history unfold with us in 2016 with one of our exceptional dining or hospitality packages and ensure you don’t miss out on one of the racing and social highlights of the British summer season.
