People inhabited Newmarket Heath from the earliest times, drawn to the water sources at Newmarket and Exning. Later, during the Iron Age, Newmarket Heath belonged to the Iceni tribe. Their last Queen, Boudicca or Boadicea, led a rebellion against the Romans in 60/61 AD
600s AD: ‘Devil’s Dyke’ Earthwork, which still runs across Newmarket Heath, was an approximately 7 mile long defensive wall built by the Anglo-Saxons, probably on earlier foundations.
1200 AD onwards: Royal permission for a medieval market was granted to the new Lord of the Manor, Sir Richard de Argentein, in 1200 AD. This is one of the oldest medieval markets in Suffolk. The townsfolk included many farmers, but Newmarket’s prosperity was boosted by its markets and annual fairs.
Brewing and baking industries developed to cater for pilgrims, merchants and travellers, who were all accommodated overnight in town.
1604/5 – 1624/5: it is recorded that between 1604/5 and 1624/5 King James I created a total of 99 new Knights at Newmarket. His Royal visits occurred mainly in autumn, winter or early spring.
Fordham Parish Register records that King James I commenced centuries of Royal connections with Newmarket on Wednesday 27th February 1604 when he came hunting on the Heath. He stayed in the Old Griffin Inn which eventually became his first Newmarket Palace. King James, his family & the Court visited the town once or twice each year and stayed for several weeks each time. The country was then ruled from Newmarket when the King was in residence.
1613 After the first palace became unstable, architect Inigo Jones was commissioned to build a second, more prestigious Royal Palace for the King and his family on the site of the Griffin on the High Street.
The oldest record of a horse race at Newmarket is on March 19th 1619 when King James I is said to have “tarried too long” in the town on account of wanting to see a race.
King James employed four riders in his Newmarket stable together with some boys who were ‘brought up’ under the riders’ supervision. They received board and lodging and 6d each per day with other allowances amounting to £59 per year (a vast wage for a boy of that day). This was possibly the beginnings of the occupation of professional jockey.
The earliest authenticated record from a match dates from March 8th 1622. Unrecorded horse matches would probably have occurred before this date.
King Charles I continued to visit Newmarket regularly with his son Prince Charles (later King Charles II) and the Court. He is said to have built the first grandstand on the Heath for his own use. During the Civil War King Charles I was held prisoner in his Newmarket Palace for 10 days in 1647 en route to his trial and execution in London in 1649.
Horseracing in the United States was established when the Newmarket Course was laid out in Salisbury, New York. This was a section of what is now known as the Hempstead Plains of Long Island, New York. There had been horseracing in Virginia before this date. However it was described as “spontaneous, impromptu, unorganized and incidental” and there was no racecourse. This was a significant event because it also links King Charles II to the start of organised racing in the US.
In preparation for his return to Newmarket after the Restoration of the Crown in 1660, King Charles II set out his rules, or Articles, for a new race to be run on the second Thursday in October from 1666. This signalled the King’s intentions to renew connections with Newmarket and its sports.
King Charles II returned to Newmarket and the phenomenon of organised ‘modern’ racing at ‘the Home of Horseracing’ dates from this time. Spring and autumn meetings became annual fixtures. A new Round Course of 3 miles 6 furlongs had been created especially for the King’s race, by his command.
A new, third Royal Palace was completed further along the High Street. The present Palace House was just a small part of this and stables were built next to the Palace. Other racing stables soon began to appear in and around Newmarket around this period.
King Charles II is known to have competed in a race at Newmarket on 16th October 1671, when he won. Details about it are few but this has traditionally been considered to be the first Town Plate result on record. In the absence of definitive early records of the Town Plate, it will continue to be one of racing’s debated topics.
Mr Griffin’s horse won the Plate against “three lords and two other gentlemen” and afterwards presented the prize to the Town.
A disastrous fire engulfed most of Newmarket on the St Mary’s Church (the north or Suffolk) side of the High Street. Most of the townsfolk then lived on that side. ‘The Great Fire of Newmarket’, as it came to be known, broke out in a stable yard between 9 and 10 pm “near the little stone bridge near the market place”. ‘The Rye House Plot’ to assassinate the King and his brother James, failed because of their early departure from Newmarket after the fire.
King William III and Queen Mary II first visit Newmarket. King William III immediately adopted horseracing as one of his pastimes and improved the Newmarket Palace & gardens. Newmarket Palace was one of the first places in the country where very expensive and fashionable tulips were grown.
The Plate run at Lilly Hoo, Hertfordshire accepted the ‘Rules of Newmarket’, the first sign of Newmarket’s influence on racing.
During the reign of King William III, William Tregonwell Frampton, who was based at Newmarket, became the first to receive the post and title of ‘Keeper of the King’s Running Horses’. He prospered and grew to such importance in the racing world that he is known as ‘the Father of the Turf’.
Queen Anne refurbished the Newmarket Palace and the Queen’s Pavilion was built onto the existing building. The Queen made her first Royal visit to Newmarket that Easter, 10th – 20th April. Her interest in racing set a fashion for wealthy women to attend races.
Queen Anne endowed two schools in Newmarket with an annuity for their upkeep. She also paid £1000 towards the first pavements on the High Street.
The Newmarket Town Plate is Newmarket’s oldest race and also one of the oldest horseraces in existence. A continuous written record of results is contained in the Newmarket Match Book on display in the National Horseracing Museum. This first record is dated Thursday 13th October 1720.
Flying Childers (foaled 1714), a son of The Darley Arabian (one of the Founding Fathers), ran his first match at Newmarket in April 1721. He won that and also his next race at Newmarket in October 1721.
John Cheny published the first list of national race results. The Beacon and Round Courses at Newmarket, both about 4 miles, are used. Over time these two courses are divided into sections so that races of different lengths and profiles can be run.
The Jockey Club took a lease on a coffee house in the High Street. This became the Jockey Club Rooms that we know today. Before then the Jockey Club had met in the Red Lion (now gone, but located in the Rous Road area).
Some gentlemen of The Jockey Club settle a dispute at the Curragh, Ireland

The great horse Eclipse was never beaten in any of his 18 races and was said to be much faster than any other contemporary horse. His last ever race was run at Newmarket and a statue of Eclipse may be seen at the Rowley Mile Racecourse.
The July Stakes, inaugurated in 1786, is the oldest race for juvenile horses in existence.
James Weatherby published ‘An Introduction to a General Stud Book’ which brought together the pedigrees kept in private stud books. Every Thoroughbred today is descended in male line from one of three stallions known as ‘The Founding Sires’ or ‘Fathers’ – the Byerley Turk, the Darley Arabian and the Godolphin Arabian.
2000 Guineas is inaugurated. The first 2000 Guineas race, over 1 mile, was won by Wizard ridden by Billy Clift. There were 8 runners. The owner was Mr Christopher Wilson of Tadcaster. Mr Wilson had attended almost every Newmarket meeting for 60 years by the time he died in 1842. By 1814 the race attracted 14 runners.
1000 Guineas was run for the first time in 1814. This also was a 1 mile race but was for fillies only. The first winner was called Charlotte and, coincidentally, she was also ridden by Billy Clift and owned by the same Mr Christopher Wilson. Unlike the 2000 Guineas, the race finished in the Dip until 1872.
The Cesarewitch, one of the major handicap races sometimes referred to as the ‘Autumn Double’ was inaugurated. It is twice the length of the Cambridgeshire (the other handicap race) and its course begins behind the Devil’s Dyke and then crosses the Heath. The course has never changed.
The first Cambridgeshire was run over 9 furlongs. The winner was Lanercost. The course was altered twice, in 1843 and 1887. On the first occasion a bend was eliminated. On the second, the race was transferred from the Old Cambridgeshire Course, which finished at the Beacon finish, to the current course, which finishes at the Rowley Mile finish.
The first railway line was laid to Newmarket and the first station built. It is said that the reason that Newmarket received priority for its line at such an early date was because the nobility and MPs wanted to be able to visit the Newmarket races and get there and back to London within a day.
The Middle Park Stakes was given its name by William Blenkiron who owned Middle Park Stud in Eltham, Kent. He donated the £1000 prize money. The first race was won by The Rake, ridden by Jack Loates in 1866.
The Dewhurst Stakes began when Mr Thomas Gee, who owned Dewhurst Stud in Sussex, put up the £300 prize money. It is run at the Rowley Mile in October over 7 furlongs and became part of the new Future Champions Festival in 2011.
The July Cup was introduced as an all-age race. There were only 3 runners. It is run over 6 furlongs and in the early days of the race it was considered to be a showcase where high-class horses could demonstrate their versatility.
Edmund Tattersall purchased a field from the McCalmont family which would later become part of Park Paddocks. Up until that time Tattersalls had held their Newmarket Sales in the High Street.
Queen Victoria’s reign provided Newmarket with one of its best-known landmarks, the Jubilee Clock Tower. This celebrated the Queen’s Golden Jubilee in 1887. It was paid for by public subscription and was opened in 1890.
The first steeplechase race took place on a circular steeplechase course built by Colonel Harry McCalmont, approximately where the Links Golf Club is located. The Links Cottages nearby contain the Old Grandstand buildings as part of their structure. The Racecourse Head Office is still located here today.

The Prince of Wales, later King Edward VII, frequently visited Newmarket. He kept a string of racehorses here and influential and wealthy people imitated him. Many new racing stables appeared around Newmarket together with new stud farms. The modern Newmarket Equine Hub began to form. It later developed into racing and bloodstock with numerous supporting trades and industries.
The ‘new’ train station was built at a cost of £40000, provided by wealthy local entrepreneur Colonel Harry McCalmont. He thought that Newmarket deserved a modern station which could handle its significant race traffic and provide space for larger engines and trains. McCalmont also built The Avenue as an impressive, smart approach to his new station.
Like many other Royal Patrons of Newmarket before him, King Edward VII was interested in the welfare of the townsfolk and also the institutions which supported the poorest residents of the town. There is a record of a visit the King made, on July 13th 1904, to the Newmarket Workhouse on Exning Road, which later became the White Lodge Hospital.
When King Edward VII died, Sir Ernest Cassell donated his own house and land in memory of his friend to enable the King Edward VII Memorial Hall and Gardens to be built for the benefit of the town in His Majesty’s memory.

First date with my (now) wife Lesley. We had 1 winner, would have been 2 if I’d let her back a 33-1 outsider. Sadly, or more appropriately ‘happily’, no photos remain. My chat-up line – “I’m going to Newmarket on Saturday – you can come if you want.”
