Newmarket MEP Alex Mayer visited the National Heritage Centre for Horse-racing & Sporting Art on Friday 23rd June to get behind the museums’ final push for votes as a finalist for Art Fund Museum of the Year 2017.

Ms. Mayer was shown around the centre and met the retired racehorses currently in residence on the site.

The National Heritage Centre for Horse-racing and Sporting Art is the first ever sporting museum to be short-listed for the Art Fund Museum of the Year.

Ms. Mayer said: “Newmarket is of course where horse-racing really began. The National Heritage Centre is doing great work opening up the sport of horse-racing, and has renovated and brought the old palace stables to life for everyone to enjoy.

“The short-list for Art Fund Museum of the Year is a five horse race to the finish line with competitors from all over the UK. It is brilliant to see Newmarket representing the East of England in the race for the finish line. I don’t know about the bookies odds, but my money’s on Newmarket!”
