Racing enthusiasts will be able to meet the horses in many stables
A first National Racehorse Week is slated to take place across Britain later this year between 12-19 September, during which time the public will have rare access to more than 100 training yards across the country.
The free initiative will begin the same day as the Malton and Epsom Open Houses and end the following weekend with the two-day Henry Cecil Open Weekend in Newmarket.

With new stables being added all the time, each of the participating yards is listed on the nationalracehorseweek.uk website, where a postal code search allows visitors to find the nearest open court and register to attend for free.
Among those eager to welcome members of the public is Gloucestershire trainer Richard Phillips, who originally came up with the idea for National Race Horse Week.
