SACKVILLE HOUSE STABLES
Sackville House Stables appeared on the Newmarket map in 1760, this Grade II Listed Training Yard is believed to be one of the older racing establishments in Newmarket. In 1860 it was owned by Viscount Sackville the obvious reason for its current name. From the twentieth century onwards it has enjoyed some notable owners and trainers.
Recently been refurbished, the stables are equipped with rubber matting on walls and floors and state of the art mangers offering the best facilities for our equine athletes.
Sackville House Stables is located at the foot of the world famous Warren Hill gallops and has access to over 2,500 acres of Jockey Club managed training grounds. Located in the heart of Newmarket, it has immediate access to world leading veterinary practices, farriers, physio's, nutritionalists, dentists and the professionals required to ensure the highest care for our horses are maintained.
NEWMARKET TRAINING GROUNDS
Horses have been trained in Newmarket in preparation for racing for over 350 years. Today the Newmarket Training Grounds, owned and managed by Jockey Club Estates, span 2,500 acres and boast an unequalled array of facilities in terms of their scale and variety.
The town is home to around 80 racehorse trainers and at peak season there are close to 3,000 horses in training. The town centre divides the training grounds into two, ‘Bury Side’ to the east and ‘Racecourse Side’ to the west. An extensive system of horsewalks across the town link the two.
Integral to its enduring status as ‘the headquarters of racing’ is Newmarket Heath. The land of the Heath extends to both sides of town and includes the two racecourses, the Rowley Mile and the July Course, as well as the training grounds. Under the care of The Jockey Club, the turf on the Heath has been protected and nurtured for centuries, avoiding being ploughed up during the wars and being kept free of railway lines and new roads.
As well as protecting the Heath, Jockey Club Estates has invested millions of pounds in new facilities and the latest artificial surfaces to ensure that Newmarket remains an internationally recognised centre of excellence for Thoroughbred training.
Sackville House Stables is located in the heart of Newmarket, Suffolk, the home of the thoroughbred. The convenient location gives racing enthusiasts the opportunity to visit surrounding studs, the racing museum, Newmarket's July Course and the Rowley Mile and Tattersalls. The small market town has a wide variety of restaurants, cafes and shops giving visitor to the stables an opportunity to go for a leisurely lunch and catch up after a visit to morning stables.
