QIPCO Guineas Festival
The QIPCO Guineas Festival at Newmarket, the home of English racing, is a must for any horse-racing fan. Only Epsom can match its claim to stage two Classic races in the course of one meeting.
The 2000 Guineas, the first of the season's Triple Crown races, is the highlight of the meeting. Taking place on the Saturday the race, for three-year-olds, is surpassed in quality only by the Derby. Sunday sees the running of the 1000 Guineas, which competes with the Oaks as the best fillies-only race in the country.
