Newmarket is the place to be from now through the end of July, as the historic horse racing venue in Suffolk hosts a number of events over the next few weeks.
The Piper-Heidsieck Festival began on Thursday, with Universal—ridden by jockey Joe Fanning—winning a thrilling victory at the Princess of Wales’s Boylesports.com Stakes.
That was only the beginning. There are still plenty of races remaining this month, plus there will also be live music and other entertainment at Newmarket.
Madness will be performing on July 19 and performing hits such as "One Step Beyond" and "Baggy Trousers" during Adnams Newmarket Night.
Labrinth and X Factor winner Little Mix will also be there a week later, on July 26, to sing and play music for guests.
Now that you know which artists will be on hand during the festivals, it’s time to check out the complete racing schedule for the Newmarket July Meetings and highlight some jockeys to keep an eye on in the events.

Buick is in peak form, which couldn’t come at a more perfect time as the flat jockey prepares for more races at Newmarket.
In the week leading up to the start of these events, the Norwegian-born star won six of his last 22 races and hit the board in 10 of them.
He’s a great bet to find success and should be someone worth wagering on for the gambling fanatics out there.
Ryan Lee Moore
R L Moore may be a bit of a long shot to win some races, but he’s been paying consistent dividends for those that have backed him over the past two weeks.
Moore has competed in 30 runs, finishing in first an outstanding 10 times, plus he has also managed to hit the board in 18 of those races.
When you look at those numbers, it seems that it would be downright foolish to bet against this red-hot jockey.
