Newmarket Racecard - Saturday 28th August

Page 1


THE JOCKEY CLUB WELCOMES YOU Welcome to the July Course. A very warm welcome to Newmarket's July Course this afternoon for the final time this season, before the action moves back to the Rowley Mile for Gold Season. We have a terrific afternoon of racing and entertainment in store, with no fewer than eight races to savour – including the enormously popular Town Plate for amateur riders – and a live performance from McFly taking us into the evening. The early highlight on course is the Listed Close Brother Hopeful Stakes (2.45), which will see a field of high-class sprinters reaching speeds of up to 40mph along the six furlong course. It is a spectacle not to be missed. We also have the Close Brothers Handicap at 5.35, which is a qualifier for The Jockey Club Grassroots Sprint Series, the conclusion of which takes place on Finals Day at Nottingham on 29 September. At 6.05 we will witness the 351st running of the Town Plate, sponsored by Goldings and Powters and staged over a distance of three miles and six furlongs on a unique course that is used only once each year. We greatly look forward to seeing which horse and rider will triumphantly add their names to the illustrious roll of honour and take home a Goldings voucher and box of Powters celebrated Newmarket sausages. We are very grateful to Close Brothers for sponsoring seven races this afternoon, as well as to Goldings and Powters for their continued sponsorship of the Town Plate. We would also like to thank Al Basti Equiworld Dubai, for their sponsorship of our Owners’ and Trainers’ facility. With seven UK number-one singles, five top-ten albums, six sell-out tours and ten million records sold worldwide, we are in for a real treat when McFly take to the stage to perform some of their biggest hits after racing. We are delighted to be able to welcome spectators back without restrictions on capacity, but we would ask all attendees to read the advice later in this racecard which explains what we can all do to keep each other safe whilst on course. I wish all the horses and their connections the best of luck and hope that you all have a wonderful afternoon and evening with us here at Newmarket. Best wishes, SOPHIE ABLE General Manager of Newmarket Racecourses DON’T FORGET OUR NEXT MEETING - SATURDAY 18TH SEPTEMBER RACING RETURNS TO THE ROWLEY MILE The Gold Season, Newmarket Racecourses’ exciting autumn programme at The Rowley Mile, begins with Cesarewitch Trial Day. Tickets available now.

Dubai 2020 will be long remembered as the one of the most difficult years that our generation will have ever faced. Covid-19 has brought many challenges to everyday personal and business life. The Thoroughbred Racing Community across the globe have had to make many tough decisions to keep racing going albeit behind closed doors. As racecourses across the UK start to welcome a limited number of people back to their tracks, we would like to congratulate Sophie and her team at Newmarket Racecourse, The Home of British Racing, on their efforts and determination to bring back spectators. We know it isn’t the same as before but we look forward very much to returning to the track in numbers to enjoy the sport we all love. Good luck to all and stay safe. Malih L Al Basti Al Basti Equiworld, Dubai.

RACECARD

1. FORM

EXPERT VIEW

A quick way to see a horse’s past performance. These are its recent finishing positions.

How the experts rate the horse’s chances:

Look out for Letters: C = Has won at this course D = Has won over this distance CD = Has won over this distance at this course BF = Was a beaten favourite

2. BHA rating = the higher the number, the better the horse. 3. Timeform view and TFR rating 4. HORSE’S TRAINER & THEIR LOCATION Look out for the summary of leading course trainers before each race.

MORE INFORMATION ON THE FORM

5. JOCKEY

- = New racing season / = Missed racing season P = Was pulled-up and didn’t finish the race F = Horse fell U = Rider unseated R = Horse refused to race CO = The horse was forced out of a race by a loose horse B = Horse was brought down S = Horse slipped r = The horse ran around a jump or took the wrong course in a flat race d = Disqualified Bold form figures = performance in all-weather (Flat) or Point-to-Point (Jump) races

Listen out for any jockeys who are having a successful day. OTHER USEFUL DETAILS 6. Owner’s colours worn by the Jockey 7. Saddlecloth number 8. Horse’s name 9. Days since the horse last run 10. Horse’s age 11. Jockey’s weight (stone and Ibs) 12. The horse’s breeding – father (sire) and mother (dam) 13. Horse’s owner 14. Horse’s breeder 15. Birthplace of horse (outside GB) 16. Draw – position of the horse in the starting stalls

BETTING

— Select your horse. Note their name and saddlecloth number. — Choose your bet. ‘To win’ or ‘each-way’ are popular types of bet. — ‘To win’ is for your horse to come first. — ‘Each-way’ is for your horse to come first or to be placed. It’s two bets, so ‘£2 each-way’ = £4 total bet.

— Decide the amount – or stake – you are comfortable to bet. — Place your bet. There are different places to bet on course; The Tote, racecourse bookmakers, betting shop or online. Each option offers a different experience. — Collect. Once ‘Weighed-in’ has been announced, present your betting slip and collect any winnings.

Perhaps not the strongest 2-y-o Newmarket event but MANACCAN looks a useful prospect and can open his account for John Ryan, who is among the winners. Adaay Atatime is a likely improver after making a fair start here 2 months ago. Wajd is a newcomer to note.

Second Race

PLAY SMARTER

TABDEED seemed back to his best when a close third in the Hackwood Stakes at Newbury last time, so his claims are obvious dropping in grade here. Summerghand’s form has dipped slightly and he must concede weight all round, but he still commands plenty of respect. Royal Scimitar remains unexposed at this trip and also looks interesting.

PLAY SMARTER

A case can be made for all of the quartet but Roger Varian took this contest 12 months ago and he has another likely sort in AQUAMAN who showed further improvement to score at Redcar last month and can defy a 4lb rise here. Run To Freedom rates the chief threat now he has been eased in the weights, with hat-trick seeking The Attorney not taken lightly either.

The least exposed and most appealing of these is CAMBRIDGESHIRE, who can be expected to relish this step up in trip judged on her Nottingham handicap debut third.

THE NEWMARKET TOWN PLATE The Newmarket Town Plate is believed to be the oldest and longest Flat race in the world - instituted in 1665 by King Charles II and first run in 1666 to be run ‘forever’. Horses were to carry twelve stones and run over the Round Course of three and three-quarter miles. The original race was run after three heats on the (then) new Round Course; “on the outside of the Ditch from Newmarket, shall leave all the posts and flags the first and last heats on the right hand and the second on the left hand by starting and ending at the weighing post, by Cambridge Gap, called Thomond’s Post.”” Half an hour was allowed between heats, after which the final itself was run within an hour and a half. Today’s race is therefore easy by yesterday’s standards! The Plate was the first with a set of Rules, for example: “Every rider that layeth hold on, or striketh any of the riders, shall win no plate or prize”.......“Whosoever winneth the plate or prize shall give to the Clerk of the Course twenty shillings, to be distributed to the poor both sides of Newmarket, and twenty shillings to the Clerk of the Race for which he is to keep the course plain andfree from cart roots”.......“No man is admitted to ride for thisprize that is either a serving man or groom.” POWTERS and GOLDING OF NEWMARKET are delighted to be supporting this historic race.


THE TROPHY There is no denying that the Newmarket Town Plate is a race rich in history and one that Newmarket holds close to its heart. Not only is it the longest standing race anywhere in the world to have its own original written rules, it is also particularly special as it was the only race in which women were allowed to compete. In 1925, Eileen Joel became the first female winner of the Newmarket Town Plate and the first woman to beat male riders! In 2021 a new trophy will be awarded to the winner of the Newmarket Town Plate. The trophy was created to commemorate Iris Rickaby’ winning the race aboard Stephania in 1926. She would go on to win the race again in 1928 aboard Bogus. Iris’s son would go on to inherit her talent in the saddle, becoming one of the most famous and successful Flat jockeys of all time, Lester Piggott.

The race was abandoned for the first time ever in 1940 when the War Office asked the Jockey Club to cancel racing at Hurst Park, Windsor and Newmarket. The third week of September was judged to be a likely period for invasion and they needed to be on highest alert to resist a landing in Suffolk or Essex. It was then assumed that the race was not run for the following two years, hence this now being the 351st running.

Emergency Procedures

Newmarket Racecourses has put in place a number of security and safety measures to ensure your safety, comfort and enjoyment. However an incident may occur which is beyond our control and it is important that you are aware of how we intend to look after you in the event of an emergency. As part of our safety management, we have employed professionally trained and experienced stewards and you will see them at various points throughout the racecourse. In the event of a situation which requires partial or full evacuation of the stands or racecourse, announcements will be broadcast and stewards will undertake the responsibility of ushering you to a place of safety; it is essential that you follow their instructions calmly and quickly. Please take your belongings with you and proceed out of the area quickly and calmly with the guidance of the stewards. The evacuation procedures have been carefully planned to lead you to a safe area. Should it be necessary to evacuate the course, the most likely scenario is that you will be ushered onto the track itself via the emergency gates. From there you will be held in an area of safety and receive further instructions as appropriate. It may give you some peace of mind if you pre plan and agree a meeting place, just in case you become separated from your party. The above is precautionary only and we trust that the procedures will never be required. However, please remember in the event of an emergency: TAKE YOUR BELONGINGS WITH YOU. UNDER THE DIRECTION OF THE STEWARDS, PROCEED QUICKLY AND CALMLY TO THE SAFE AREA. Racegoers are reminded to keep all their belongings with them at all times, and not to leave any packages unattended. Any such packages may be confiscated by the Racecourse Management.


Health And Safety Notice

The Racecourse would be grateful if you would observe all Health & Safety requirements whilst you are at Newmarket Racecourses. The emergency exits from the bars onto the grandstand steppings are painted yellow and we would request that you do not stop whilst in this area. We would also request that only those that are disabled use the disabled viewing ramp and that parents keep a close eye on all children and prevent them from climbing the running rails and getting on to the actual racecourse. We would also like to remind racegoers that the first aid room is located adjacent to the main Premier Enclosure Entrance (Rowley Mile) or Premier Entrance 2 (July Course).

Racehorse & Jockey Welfare

The welfare of the sport’s equine and human participants is paramount to British Horseracing. All racehorses competing in Britain are stabled at the premises of trainers who are licensed by The British Horseracing Authority. The standards demanded by The BHA of licensed racehorse trainers far exceed those prescribed by animal welfare legislation. The British Horseracing Authority similarly licenses every racecourse, setting high standards for the racing surface and all parts of the course used by competitors, both human and equine. BHA Officials are here to ensure that the racecourse delivers those standards. In addition Newmarket Racecourses employs two veterinary surgeons, whose sole responsibility it is to provide care to the horses throughout their time at the racecourse. In the event of an incident on the racecourse, any horse affected will receive immediate treatment from the racecourse’s veterinary team. Qualified paramedics and doctors are also on hand in the case of any incident involving a jockey.

If any incident occurs during a race it is routine practice for screens to be erected around the horse or jockey receiving treatment. This is to allow the veterinary or medical personnel to make a safe and accurate diagnosis and so that they may perform any treatment in a private and calm environment. If necessary, horses and riders will be transported from the course to receive further treatment at the nearest equine hospital or Accident & Emergency hospital.

Photography

Racegoers may take photographs for private purposes in the racecourse enclosures. Photography is not permitted in any other area without the permission of the Head of Racing. Under no circumstances may photographs taken on the racecourse be used for publication. Racegoers are reminded that flash photography is not permitted as the flash can alarm horses and may endanger horses, jockeys and public.

Newmarket Racecourses Official Photographer
