Two Newmarket racecourse horses stopped in Ipswich this afternoon as part of an East Anglian tour.
The Newmarket racecourse horse-drawn carriage is touring our region this week to celebrate The Moët & Chandon July Festival.
The horses were at Giles Circus from 2.30pm to 3.30pm - unfortunately due to lack of space the carriage wasn’t able to come to Ipswich.
The road-show started yesterday, June 26, in Peterborough and then travelled to Cambridge and Chelmsford.
The mini-event was held to promote the popular Adnams July course which will take place at Newmarket Racecourse on July 12-14.
Claire Bourne, who owns the horses, said the tour has been really good.
She said: “It’s been a really good crowd puller and we have had loads of interest and some fantastic prizes have been given away and we have had a lot of positive comeback.”
