WATCH: This is Newmarket

Not only the home of the 1000 and 2000 Guineas, Newmarket Racecourse is the home of horse racing itself.

Dating back to the times of James I and Charles II, the racecourse was founded in the 17th century and has maintained strong royal connections throughout its history. 

May will see two of the five Classics in the 1000 and 2000 Guineas before the Summer Festival, containing two more Group 1s in the Falmouth Stakes and the July Cup, with the Cambridgeshire Meeting in September playing host to the Filles' Mile, the Sun Chariot Stakes and the Cheveley Park Stakes before the Flat season draws to a close with the Future Champions Festival in October.

But before all that, as the National Hunt season reaches its climax with the Grand National, attentions turn to the bet365 Craven Meeting in April.

Today's horse racing

Charlie Fellowes, who's based in Newmarket and placed in the Melbourne Cup in three straight years with Prince Of Arran, offered his opinion on why Newmarket is racing's headquarters: "I think you just have to really look around. I've been lucky enough to work all around the world and we've raced a lot of horses around the world and I've never seen anywhere like it."

This is Newmarket.
