Two days of exciting Flat racing kick off what will be a momentous 2017 turf season at Newbury. A number of Classic trials are staged over the two days (21 – 22 April), targeted many leading owners and trainers, anxious to test potential of their big race candidates and drawn by the substantial prize money offer.
In 2015, Her Majesty The Queen once again graced the event and supported the race meeting with three runners, all of which were placed, but success in the track was dominated by H.H. Sheikh Hamdan whose five winners included Intilaaq, bred by His Highness’ Shadwell Stud and who holds an entry in the Epsom Derby a runaway winner of the first division of the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships Maiden Stakes and a first and second in the Group 3 AON Greenham Stakes with Muhaarar and Estidhkaar.
Dubai Duty Free's association with Newbury, one of British horseracing’s most enduring partnerships, have been forged in 1996.<< Back
