The British Horseracing Board is supporting both the National Stud and Retraining of Racehorses at the National Stud July Fair, which runs from 8th to 10th July in Newmarket.

The BHB is one of the Arena sponsors at the event, and the BHB will be present through its 'Thrill of Ownership' information stand. Visitors to the stand will be able to enter a competition to win a racehorse for a day, take away information on how to own a racehorse or on the BHB Ownership Open Days, find information on the BHB website - www.bhb.co.uk - or simply watch the horseracing courtesy of attheraces.

The stand is also home to Retraining of Racehorses for the week, and visitors will be able to hear about the work of RoR and see a demonstration of their brand new website. The site - www.ror.org.uk - aims to provide information on retraining and rehoming former racehorses moving into a second career.

Paul Struthers, BHB industry marketing manager, said "We're delighted to be supporting the National Stud July Fair - the event is an excellent idea and looks sure to be popular." On working with RoR, he said: "It's important that whilst promoting racehorse ownership we can also assure people that racehorses do have a life after racing. Working with and supporting RoR, and highlighting the great work they do, helps us to achieve this goal."


The 44th running of The John Smith's Cup – Britain's longest-established sponsored race on the Flat – heads a quality seven-race programme at York on Saturday (12 July), the second day of the July Meeting on the Knavesmire.

This famous Showcase Handicap, first run in 1960, is one of Europe's most prestigious and valuable middle-distance handicap contests, it being run over the extended one mile and a quarter with a total prize fund of £135,000. Last year's race produced a memorable climax, with Vintage Premium, trained near Malton by Richard Fahey and ridden by the subsequent champion apprentice jockey Paul Hanagan prevailing in a three-way finish. The winning owner will receive a specially-commissioned hand-made Wedgewood trophy.

Another bumper crowd is expected on Saturday, when racing starts at 1.55 p.m. and racegoers are advised to arrive early on one of York's most popular days from when the gates open at 11.15 a.m.

Saturday's race titles draw attention to the well-known brands of brewers, John Smith's Ltd., along with the company's advertising campaigns, including The Webster's Silver Cup Rated Stakes (a £35,000 Listed handicap contest for stayers over one mile and three-quarters), The John Smith's Sangton Leisure Handicap Stakes (six furlongs), The John Smith's Extra Smooth Median Auction Stakes (two-year-olds – six furlongs), The John Smith's ‘Ave It' Stakes (a nursery handicap for two-year-olds over five furlongs) and The John Smith's ‘No Nonsense Racing' Maiden Fillies' Stakes over one mile and a half.

The John Smith's Brazil and Parry Talksport Handicap Stakes over seven furlongs promotes the fact that the John Smith's-sponsored breakfast show on Talksport Radio will be coming ‘live' from the track with presenters Mike Parry and Alan Brazil. The Minster FM Roadshow will be on hand to entertain racegoers before racing.

In connection with the wider community, John Smith's are also the Patrons of HMS York, the Royal Navy Destroyer which bears the name of the City. Members of the Ship's company will be attending Saturday's raceday as part of a weekend of celebrations relating to the Freedom of the City of York bestowed on HMS York.

Racing on Friday (11 July) begins at 2.00 p.m. and the card includes a new Group 3 race, The Cuisine de France Summer Stakes, a sprint contest over six furlongs for fillies and mares. This race forms the backdrop for the annual charity day in support of Caravan – the National Grocers Benevolent Fund which exists to provide financial aid for those people who have served in the grocery industry. The Yorkshire branch of the charity is once again responsible for Friday's fund-raising activities, which also involves four other sponsored races – The Mr. Kipling Exceedingly Good Stakes (a handicap contest for sprinters over five furlongs), The John West Tuna Stakes (a handicap race over one mile and a half), The Ramesys Maiden Stakes (two-year-olds over seven furlongs), while The Danepak Classic Stakes – a handicap contest over one mile – welcomes new sponsors in Tulip Ltd.

Two giant screens will enable racegoers to enjoy even more of the action on both days, while York's free supervised crèche facility, ‘Colts & Fillies' is available on Saturday.

The popular ‘Punters Panel,' part of the Tote Partnership Initiative with the racecourse, takes place prior to racing on both days from the winners' podium.

The stage is set for an enthralling July Meeting at York.
