Short Head to Marco Botti's

£54 per person
Overview
Itinerary
Booking

On Saturday 18th March our Short Head Tour will be visiting Marco Botti's stables for a behind the scenes tour of his training operation at Prestige Place. This popular half-day morning tour is ideal for people with other afternoon plans or those just wanting a glimpse into the world of racing. You will spend the morning visiting the gallops, the trainer's yard and then onto the newly opened National Heritage Centre for Horseracing and Sporting Art. Your time spent in the trainer's yard gives you an opportunity to see your favourite stars and meet the team behind the scenes. Due to racing commitments we can't guarantee you will meet the trainer but if not, there will always be a member of senior staff on hand to give you the inside track!

PLEASE NOTE: Finalised itineraries will be sent to all tour guests seven days prior to the tour date. The arranged meeting point and timings can vary. Elements of the tour can also change, if you are unsure please contact the office to reconfirm your tour start time and arrival location.

08.50 - Meet your Discover Newmarket tour guide (meeting point will be advised in your itinerary).

09.05 - 10.00 - Time to enjoy and experience Newmarket’s world famous training grounds where you will see the day’s second ‘lots’ being ridden out on Warren Hill. This will be followed by a tour through the town.

10.15 - 11.15 - A behind-the-scenes view of Marco Botti's stables. Your trainer or their representative will show you around, introduce you to the horses, outline the yard routines, feeding regimes, and answer any questions you might have. Please note your trainer will be confirmed nearer the time.

11.30 - 13.00 - Time to explore the newly opened National Heritage Centre for Horseracing & Sporting Art* which is situated in Charles II’s sporting palace and stables and spans five acres in the heart of Newmarket. It comprises of three complementary attractions; a new National Horseracing Museum, a National Art Gallery of British Sporting Art, and a chance to meet former racehorses and learn what they do after racing, in the flagship home of Retraining of Racehorses (RoR).

Tour Ends.
