Record Crowds Again At Newmarket

Tuesday's Crowd
10,075 + 993 (+11%), 9,082 (2002)

Wednesday's Crowd
8,823 +974 (+ 12.5%) 7,849 (2002)

Lisa Hancock, Managing Director of Newmarket, said: ‘We were almost 1,000 up on Ladies Day and achieved the same on Wednesday - the overall increase for the first two days is a pleasing 11.7% over last year.

’Another high-quality card allied to some great summer weather has brought in many more racegoers. We are delighted with how the 2003 July Meeting is going.’

The appearance of Australian sprinting sensation Choisir in today’s Group One £250,000 Darley July Cup means that Newmarket Racecourse will have a strong Aussie flavour.

All Australian passport holders will gain half-price admission to the racecourse on Thursday, July 10, and it is hoped, that with so many Australians living in London, a lot of them will come to Newmarket to support the horse who has so enthralled the Australian public.

Choisir became the first Australian-trained horse to win on the Flat in Britain when he was triumphant in the King's Stand Stakes and four days later took the Golden Jubilee Stakes, both at Royal Ascot last month.
