Three of The Queen’s training yards are opening their doors to the public for a series of very special tours in honour of Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee.
William Haggas, Michael Bell and John & Thady Gosden are some of the most eminent racehorse trainers in the world, and have secured approximately 6,000 winners between them.
In partnership with Discover Newmarket, the royal trainers are offering a behind the scenes tour of their stables where The Queen has horses in training.
After a visit to their yard, the trainers will take guests to the famous Newmarket gallops to watch the horses exercise.
John Gosden has been associated with some of horse racing’s brightest stars and his career haul is well over 3,000 race wins including in excess of 100 Group 1 winners all over the world.
In 2021, he joined forces with his son, Thady, and together they train a number of horses for The Queen, including Epsom Derby entry Reach For The Moon.
William Haggas trains The Queen’s other two Derby entries – Educator and General Idea from his Somerville Lodge base.
Michael Bell has enjoyed a successful career during which he has trained over 1400 winners, including the victors of a Derby and an Oaks.
After the royal yard visit is over, Discover Newmarket will take guests on a guided tour of The National Stud.
This will include a personal viewing of the stallions with Jon Grimwade LVO – the former manager of The Royal Studs at Sandringham.
This full day tour concludes with a visit to the impressive National Horseracing Museum which was opened by the Queen in 2016 and is located on the original site of King Charles II’s Palace and Stables.
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity and spaces are limited, so don’t delay in booking!
