A group of over 300 local primary schoolchildren was welcomed to Newmarket’s July Racecourse last week for the finale of the popular Under Starter’s Orders programme.

The initiative, started in 2015, is an integral part of Racing to School’s educational programme and is made possible through the generous support of Newmarket Racecourses, Jockey Club Estates and Godolphin.

Racing to School’s programme manager Ollie McPhail said, “The raceday is a fantastic finale to the three-part programme local schools participate in and has given pupils the opportunity to apply the knowledge gained from their experiences at Dalham Hall Stud and the Horseracing Museum in a real life setting of a busy raceday. We are delighted to have completed a successful ninth year of this popular programme.”
