INTRODUCTION BY MARK TOMPKINS
I am pleased to be involved with the Newmarket Trainers Website, and hope it will be a good source of information for Internet users all over the world. Whether you are interested in finding out more about Newmarket or
how to pick a horse, we’re sure you will find what you need here. Newmarket, is, after all, the Head Quarters of
British Racing -
The place is steeped in a rich racing history, and the facilities remain unrivalled.
Great kudos for Newmarket this year, winning the Epsom Derby! The Charlie Appleby trained MASAR, ridden by
William Buick, won this pinnacle of British racing for Sheik Mohammed. At the same meeting, John Gosden took the Coronation Cup with CRACKSMAN (Frankie Dettori) Previous to that, William Haggas took the Bet 365 Mile at Sandown, with ADDEYBB (James Doyle) and Charlie Appleby trained WUHEIDA to win the Dahlia Stakes
at Newmarket (William Buick). York saw John Gosden scoop three Group races with CORONET winning
the Middleton Stakes (Frankie Dettori), ROARING LION taking the Dante (Oisin Murphy) and STRADIVARIUS
winning the Yorkshire Cup (Frankie Dettori).
Royal Ascot went well for Newmarket trainers with John Gosden, and Sir Michael Stoute scoring three Group (1 & 2) winners apiece. John Gosden won the Coventry with CALYX, the St James Palace with WITHOUT PAROLE and the Gold Cup with STRADIVARIUS (Frankie Dettori on all of them). Sir Michael Stoute took the Prince of Wales with
POETS WORD (James Doyle), the Commonwealth Cup with EQTIDAAR (Jim Crowley) and the Hardwicke Stakes with CRYSTAL OCEAN (Ryan Moore). Charlie Appleby flew the flag for Godolphin winning the Kings Stand with BLUE POINT (William Buick) and the King Edward VII Stakes with OLD PERSIAN (William Buick). Marco Botti triumphed in
the Duke of Cambridge with ALJAZZI (William Buick).
Potential owners have so many trainers to choose from here, in just about every price bracket, and all have
use of the outstanding gallops, which continue to be so superbly maintained by
Mr.William Gittus, the Managing Director at Jockey Club Estates, and his Heath men.
There is no doubt that Newmarket is the Number One place to train racehorses,
and I am proud to chair the Newmarket Trainers Federation,
which represents so many people with so much talent.
