WIN! See Frankel in action at Betfred Cambridgeshire Day at Newmarket Racecourse

FRANKEL the world’s best racehorse will be given a public workout at Betfred Cambridgeshire Day at Newmarket Racecourse - and you could be there to witness it.

Racegoers on Saturday September 29 will now not only see a pair of Group One races, a Group Two contest and the historic Betfred Cambridgeshire Heritage Handicap.

They are also set to get the chance to watch the Sir Henry Cecil-trained superstar, which has won all of its 13 races, in action at the Rowley Mile Course.

Frankel’s trainer Sir Henry Cecil said: “All going well, Frankel will have a racecourse gallop at Newmarket one hour before racing on September 29 in his preparation for the Champion Stakes at Ascot on October 20.”

Betfred Cambridgeshire Day gets underway at 2pm, so the approximate time of Frankel’s gallop will be 1pm.
