Known throughout the world as the Headquarters of Flat racing, Newmarket has two courses, the Rowley Mile and the July course. On the Rowley Mile, all races from five to ten furlongs are run on the straight with a marked dip over a furlong out with a stiff uphill finish. All races over a mile and a quarter are run right handed. The track requires stamina and balance from the thoroughbred.
All meeting taking place during June, July and August are run on the July Course, with a straight eight furlongs and a right handed turn for races beyond this trip. There is a steep climb throughout the final furlong which is even stiffer than the Rowley Mile.
The track drains well and the going rarely becomes heavy.
