INTRODUCTION BY MARK TOMPKINS
I am pleased to be involved with the Newmarket Trainers Website, and hope it will be a good source of information for Internet users all over the world. Newmarket, is, after all, the Head Quarters of British Racing -
The 2016 Flat season has just started with Roger Varian flying the Newmarket flag in Dubai, winning
the Dubai Sheema Classic Gr 1 with POSTPONED ridden by Andrea Atzeni, and taking the Doncaster Mile with BELARDO ridden by James Doyle. Also at Doncaster, Charlie Appleby triumphed in the Lincoln
with SECRET BRIEF ridden by William Buick. The Craven Meeting at Headquarters saw plenty of Newmarket trained horses first past the post, and the actual Craven Stakes was won by STORMY ANTARCTIC trained by
Ed Walker, ridden by George Baker. The next big meeting (Quipco Guineas Meeting) here gave us two excellent winners -
GALILEO GOLD (Frankie Dettori) gave Hugo Palmer a welcome Group 1 success in the 2000 Guineas. At York the Dante Stakes was won by WINGS OF DESIRE (Frankie Dettori), trained by John Gosden, and the Middleton Stakes went to BEAUTIFUL ROMANCE (James Doyle) for Saeed Bin Suroor. The Lockinge at Newbury was won by BELARDO (Andrea Atzeni) for Roger Varian.
Potential owners have so many trainers to choose from here,
in just about every price bracket, and all have
use of the outstanding gallops, which continue to be so superbly maintained by
Mr.William Gittus, the Managing Director at Jockey Club Estates, and his Heath men.
There is no doubt that Newmarket is the Number One place to train racehorses,
and I am proud to chair the Newmarket Trainers Federation,
which represents so many people with so much talent.
