This unique exhibition from world renowned equine artists will be on display to the public from 11.00-18.00, Thursday 7th July – Saturday 9th July in the Rothschild Yard of the National Heritage Centre for Horseracing & Sporting Art.

The exhibition is in association with the Osborne and Sladmore Galleries to celebrate 350 years of making history in Newmarket.

Entry is free and all visitors will be able to access the Rothschild Yard on foot via the All Saints Road.

Eight stables, which have been restored to their former glory will be filled with paintings and sculptures by leading international equine artists, celebrated globally for their unique styles.

Paintings will be coming from the Osborne Studio Gallery by artists Katie O’Sullivan, Hubert de Watrigant, Jay Kirkman, Michelle McCullagh and Elie Lambert, and works of art from the Sladmore Gallery will include pieces by James Gillick, Nic Fiddian Green, Mark Coreth, Dede Gold and Charlie Langton.

The galleries and artists involved are giving a generous commission to the National Horseracing Museum on any art bought or direct commissions made during this week.

This will be the first time the Rothschild Yard will be open to the public, signalling the near completion of Palace House, the National Heritage Centre for Horseracing & Sporting Art which opens later this year.

This has been a transformative project taking shape in the centre of Newmarket after years of meticulous planning, fundraising and construction. The Heritage Centre will comprise of The National Horseracing Museum, a National Gallery for British Sporting Art and the flagship home for Retraining of Racehorses Charity.
