Pre 1857 Duke of Rutland Warren Tower and its grounds
Warren Tower, a large red-brick neo-Tudor house located between Cheveley and Moulton, ideally situated on the boundary of Warren Hill, is thought to have been bought by one of the Dukes of Rutland before 1853, and sold some time after the death of the 5th Duke of Rutland, John Henry Manners, in 1857. John Henry Manners, born in Knightsbridge on 4th January 1778, was the eldest son of Charles Manners and Lady Mary Isablella Somerset and was known as Lord Roos between 1778 and 1779, and then became the Marquess of Granby until 1787. In 1787, on the death of his father, John became the 5th Duke of Rutland. On 22nd April 1799 he married Lady Elizabeth Howard, daughter of the Earl of Carlisle, and they had 10 children, the eighth of which was Charles Cecil John Manners. Tragically, his wife died in November 1825 aged just 45, and John remained a widower for the next 32 years. He was a highly successful racehorse owner and breeder, but is best remembered as the owner of the winner of the 1828 2000 Guineas and Epsom Derby, Cadland (SR 2017). The Duke died on 20th January 1857 and all his estates passed to his eldest remaining son, Charles, who became the 6th Duke of Rutland. Warren Tower was later occupied by racehorse owner Richard Naylor in the 1870s, and by Sir Daniel Cooper at the turn of the century. In the 1930s two widows of peers purchased Warren Tower, but during the Second World War it was used by Barnardo's.

NEWMARKET RACECOURSES
For over 4 centuries racing has been staged in Newmarket, but how have the racecourses evolved from an initial starting point at Fleam Dyke Pumping Station, some 8 miles from the town, with a winning post barely 200 metres from the town centre, into two world recognized, excellent racecourses and a universal acceptance that Newmarket is the Headquarters of racing?
To access an interactive racecourse map showing over 50 individually named racecourses CLICK HERE. The map will enable you to:-
1. Determine when extended races over 8 miles, 6 miles and 4 miles began to be replaced by the courses now visited by thousands annually;
2. Consider how the challenge of crossing the Devil's Dyke was overcome;
3. Contemplate why the town no longer has a steeplechase course despite having at least 5 courses during the past 2 centuries;
4. Examine the practicalities of having up to 48 starting posts and winning posts;
5. Appreciate that it was not financially viable to have an open racecourse spread widely across the heath, with a finishing post barely 200 metres from the town centre;
6. Research how and why the Cambridgeshire Handicap has been contested over 3 different courses.
NOTE: The map does not make mention of 2 particular courses:-
(i) Sefton Course (also known as the Cambridge Road Course)
Source: 1970 Raceform.  Used from 1959 to 1975.
(ii) New Circular Course
The Circular Handicap was run on Friday 29th October 1875 on the New Circular Course of about two miles.
Source: London Standard (30th October 1875): ''the horses started near the Turn of the Lands, ran back way of the Cambridgeshire Course towards the Ditch, and afterwards proceeded down the side of the Tan Gallop, and turned into the Rowley Mile near the Bretby Stakes starting post, finishing at the stand at the end of the flat. Except in the hollow near the Cambridgeshire start the runners should have been visible all the way if the sky had been bright and clear''.
Another report hoped that the Circular Handicap would become a feature in future programmes, as it would be contested in front of the new grandstand which would be completed in about a year and would be able to accommodate thousands.
(I am grateful to Tim Cox for bringing attention to these 2 courses.)

1858-1888 Richard Naylor Warren Tower and its grounds


Richard Christopher Naylor, born on 14th September 1814, initially trained as a chemist based in Liverpool, but in 1846 he inherited a substantial fortune from his uncle which enabled him to become a racehorse owner and breeder, although he is best remembered for establishing a stud farm at Hooton Hall in 1848 and for owning the famous Epsom Derby winner Macaroni. Macaroni, a bay colt by Sweetmeat out of Jocose, was foaled in 1860 at Eaton Stud, Cheshire owned by Richard Grosvenor. However, the Stud suffered an outbreak of strangles, an equine respiratory disease, and Grosvenor was delighted to sell 6 yearlings, including Macaroni, to Richard Naylor for the bargain price of £700.

I am grateful to Ordnance Survey (© Crown Copyright) for permission to use the 1836 map shown above.
Macaroni was sent to Newmarket to be trained by James Godding at Palace House Stables, going on to win the 1863 2000 Guineas, Epsom Derby and Doncaster Cup. Owner, Richard Naylor, is reported to have won a sum in excess of £100,000 on the colt's Epsom Derby victory, later winning the Doncaster Cup before retirement to take up his stud duties at Naylor's at Hooton Hall. A number of reports state that Richard Naylor also purchased Warren Tower and grounds at some stage, possibly as early as 1857, although it is not clear exactly when, and whether he just used the house as a base when watching his horses run at Newmarket. He died on 30th November 1899, but well before then he had put the House and estate up for auction. In April 1888 Warren Tower, described as a delightful freehold residence with capital stabling, was advertised for auction by Debenham, Tewson Farmer and Bridgewater on Tuesday 8th May 1888. The successful bidder at the auction was Sir Daniel Cooper.

1888-1909 Sir Daniel Cooper Warren Tower House and grounds
In 1888 Sir Daniel Cooper, born in Woolahra, New South Wales on 15th November 1848, acquired Warren Towers House and grounds, possibly from Richard Naylor, and appointed Mr W Spire to be his racing manager and to oversee the 160-acre site. He succeeded to the baronetcy in 1902 on the death of his father, also named Daniel, on 5th June 1902. Daniel junior was educated at Wellington College and married Harriet Grant-Suttle, daughter of Sir James Grant-Suttle, in 1886. Their only child, a daughter named Dorothy, was born a year later. Daniel was an enthusiastic sportsman, his particular passion being horse racing, and he was elected to the Australian Jockey Club. Whilst in Australia he owned Blairgowrie, winner of the 1886 AJC Champagne Stakes and Champion Stakes. As soon as he settled in England, he resumed his interest in racing with vigour, and was elected to the Jockey Club in 1894. He delighted in seeing his orange and white colours carried to victory in numerous races, but especially in the 1906 1000 Guineas by Flair (SR 1986). He only benefitted from the Baronetcy for 7 short years because he died in London on 13th June 1909 aged 60. He was a very popular figure in the Newmarket racing scene throughout his time in England, and a water fountain, to quench the thirst of weary racegoers, was erected in Newmarket by his widow, Lady Harriet Cooper, in 1910.

1909-1915 Mr G A Prentice Warren Tower House and grounds
When Sir Daniel Cooper died on 13th June 1909 Warren House and grounds were purchased by Mr Graham A Prentice who proceeded to spend £10,000 on improvements. Graham Prentice, born in Montreal in September 1863, came to England to be educated at Harrow and Cambridge, completing his degree in 1884. He worked as a successful jobber in the Stock Exchange for over 20 years, but his passion was horse racing, and in the early days he sent his horses to be trained by John Powney at Grateley, Hampshire, enjoying some success by winning the 1903 Stewards Cup with Dumbarton Castle, and capturing 2 Paris Auteuil Hurdles with General Peace in 1900 and Karakoul in 1905. By 1909 he had shifted his attention to Newmarket, sending his horses to be trained by Basil Jarvis. In the mid-1910s Prentice, who died in February 1921, sold Warren Tower House to Seymour Cole.

1909-1918 Sir Edward Hulton Warren Towers Stud
Sir Edward George Stephen Hulton, born on 3rd March 1869 in Hulme, Manchester, was the second son of Edward Hulton, the founder of the Sporting Chronicle, and his wife Mary. He was educated at St Bede's Commercial College which he left aged 16. Upholding the family tradition, Edward junior founded the Manchester Evening News in 1897 along with a host of other newspapers. In 1900 Edward married Agnes Turnbull Wood, later marrying Fanny Warris in 1916 with whom he had a son and a daughter. He was a keen follower of sport, in particular football; he was chairman of Manchester City at the turn of the century, although his greatest passion was horseracing. In 1909 he purchased Warren Towers Stud which was independent of Warren Tower House and grounds, encouraging Mr W Spire to continue in his role of Racing Manager. He made use of many of his successful horses at his stud, including Shogun who had won the Woodcote Stakes and Coventry Stakes in 1912, and the Ascot Gold Vase and Greenham Stakes in 1913, but came up short in each Classic he contested. Other champions which did active service at his Warren Tower Stud were dual Classic winning filly Fifinella, and Lomond. Employing Richard Dawson as his trainer he enjoyed much success on the turf, and was crowned Champion Flat race Owner in 1916. Many of his horses, and his colours, were registered under his pseudonym 'Mr Lytham'. Although 1916 was the pinnacle of his connection with racing, winning both the War-time New Oaks Stakes and New Derby Stakes with Fifinella (SR 2055), he did enjoy further Classic success with Roseway (SR 1942) in the 1919 1000 Guineas. Hulton retired due to ill health in 1923, aged just 54, selling his newspaper business via a private company for £6 million. He died on 23rd May 1925 and was buried in Putney Vale Cemetery.

1915-1918 Mr Seymour Cole Warren Towers House and grounds
Seymour Cole purchased the House and grounds from Mr G A Prentice, but in 1918 Seymour Cole sold Warren Tower House and 28 acres of grounds for a considerable sum to Lord Wilton. The mansion and grounds were the former residence of Sir Daniel Cooper and Mr Graham A Prentice.

1918- July 1925 Lord Wilton Warren Towers House and grounds
In November 1918 Lord Wilton, later the Earl of Wilton, purchased Warren Towers and grounds, previously occupied by Mr G A Prentice, Seymour Cole and Sir Daniel Cooper. He sold it to Lady Ludlow in November 1926.

November 1926-1939 Lady Ludlow Warren Towers House
Alice Wernher leased Bedford Lodge in 1925, while in November 1926 she purchased the historic mansion of Warren Tower. She had married Sir Julius Wernher, a German born art collector and member of the Wernher, Bell & Co who had a controlling interest in the De Beers diamond mining company, on 12th June 1888. They had 3 sons; Sir Derrick Julius Wernher, Major-General Sir Harold Augustus Wernher, and Second Lieutenant Alexander Pigott Wernher. Sir Julius suffered from ill health, dying on 21st May 1912, but Alice remarried the 2nd Baron Ludlow on 25th September 1919 and thereafter became known as Lady Ludlow. The Baron died on 8th November 1922, leaving her widowed for a second time. Her second son, Sir Harold, married Countess Anastasia de Torby on 20th July 1917 and she, thereafter was known as Lady Zia Wernher. She was a prominent thoroughbred breeder and owner, becoming Champion Owner in 1955 and again in 1966. She owned the likes of Ascot Gold Cup winner Precipitation, Coronation Cup winner Persian Gulf, and crowned her ownership by landing the 1966 Epsom Derby with Charlottown (SR 1965).

July 1925-1945 Sam Darling Warren Hill Stables
Sam Henry Darling was born into a racing family, being son of the famous Beckhampton trainer Sam Darling. His older sister Grace married racehorse trainer Richard Marsh and Sam Henry became Richard's assistant before setting up as a trainer in his own right. He launched his training career at Yatesbury, a yard his father had built, and then moved to Newmarket to train at Green Lodge. By then Sam had married Thora Olive Marsh and it was at Green Lodge that their son Anthony was born in 1914. Unfortunately, Anthony lost his life in the Second World War in 1942. At the end of the First World War Sam shifted to Link Stables, although he had a long-term project in mind to purchase Warren Tower and grounds and build Stables on the site. In July 1925 he managed to complete the purchase of Warren Towers House and about 28 acres of ground. He immediately began the necessary work to transform it into a training establishment, while his previous Links Stables were acquired by the Jockey Club for use on race days. Sam also entered into discussions with Lady Ludlow regarding the sale of Warren Towers House, a purchase which was completed by November 1926. The magnificent mansion passed to Lady Ludlow, although the stabling which Sam had erected was not included in the sale. By 1928 the training establishment was being called Warren Hill Stables, and housed the largest string in Newmarket. The next largest at that time was Jack Jarvis, followed by Felix Leach junior and Frank Butters. After the end of the Second World War Sam sold Warren Place to the Maharajah of Baroda in 1945 and transferred his string to Abington Place where he remained for 2 years before selling it to Harry Wragg. Sam them retired from training.

The home closed in April 1945, after which it fell into disrepair and was demolished in 1989, although at the time there were plans for a larger house to be built by its new Arab owner

1945-1952 Fred (Sam) Armstrong Warren Place Stables
Frederick Lakin Armstrong, universally known as Sam, born in 1904, was the son of the racehorse trainer Robert Ward Armstrong who had trained for the 5th Earl of Lonsdale for over 50 years. Sam was educated at Rosall School before becoming an apprentice in his father's stable, winning his first race at Carlisle in 1921. However, after riding for 2 successful seasons, he suffered a bad fall in 1924 which put paid to his career as a jockey, but at the same time gave him the opportunity to pursue a training career. He joined Harry Cotrill at Lambourn, remaining for 5 years as his assistant, before seeking further experience in Ireland with Frank Barbour. He launched his own training career in 1926 at Ashgill Stables, Middleham, winning prestigious races like the 1937 Northumberland Plate with Nectar II, and the 1938 Wokingham Stakes with Bold Ben. During his time at Middleham he also worked with the Maharaja of Baroda, purchasing yearlings at the sales for him, for which he was duly rewarded in later life. In 1945 the Gaekwar, Maharajah of Baroda purchased Warren Hill Stables (Warren Place) and installed Fred Armstrong as his trainer. In that same year he purchased Sayajirao (SR 1958) for £28,000 and was well rewarded when it won the Lingfield Derby Trial, was placed third in the 2000 Guineas and Epsom Derby, won the St Leger and the Irish Derby. He later purchased My Babu (SR 2108) with whom he won the 1948 2000 Guineas and Sussex Stakes. That horse went on to become one of the most influential sires of the century. In 1949 Sam persuaded the Maharaja to purchase St Gatien Stables, and by the start of the 1953 season Sam had transferred his string across Newmarket to St Gatien leaving Warren Place to be occupied by former Beckhampton trainer Noel Murless.

1950-1976 Sir Charles Francis Noel Murless
Charles Francis Noel Murless, born on 24th March 1910, began his training career at Hambleton Lodge, Yorkshire in 1935, moving to Hambleton House at the end of the Second World War. In 1947 he was crowned Champion Trainer for the first time after transferring to the famous Beckhampton Stables in Wiltshire, but by the early 1950s he was on the move again, taking over from Sam Armstrong at Warren Place Stables at the foot of Newmarket's Warren Hill in readiness for the 1953 season . In 1952, whilst continuing to train, he became manager of the Eve Stud for Sir Victor Sassoon, later purchasing the Stud after Sir Victor's death, renaming it Woodditton Stud. He landed his first English Classic with Crepello (SR 2019) in the 1957 2000 Guineas, going on to achieve his inaugural Epsom Derby win with the same horse later in the year. In the 1960s Sir Noel employed Sandy Barclay as his first jockey, with Bill Rickaby as a replacement when necessary. In 1966 his daughter Julie married Henry Cecil, although they later divorced in 1990. In a career spanning 26 years at Warren Place, Noel won 19 English Classics and a further 2 Irish Classics, including 3 Epsom Derby victories; 1957 Crepello (SR 2019), 1960 St Paddy (SR 2047) and 1967 Royal Palace (SR 2031). He retired from training in 1976, received a knighthood in 1977 and died on 9th May 1987.

1976-2013 Henry Cecil
Henry Cecil, born in Aberdeen on 11th January 1943, trained at Freemason Lodge, taking over from his step-father, Cecil Boyd-Rochfort, in 1969, and remained there until Boyd-Rochfort sold Freemason Lodge. Henry Cecil then moved to Chestnut Tree Stables, then known as Marriott, residing there until the end of the 1976 season, after which he moved to Warren Place. During his time at Chestnut Tree Stables he trained two 2000 Guineas winners, in 1975 Bolkonski (SR 2047) and in 1976 Wollow (SR 2000). In 1976 he took over from his father-in-law Noel Murless and went to on train at Warren Place for 37 years, arguably becoming the best trainer of all time. He was crowned Champion Trainer on 10 occasions from 1976 to 1993, and won no less than 25 English Classics, including landing the Epsom Derby 4 times; 1985 Slip Anchor (SR 2106), 1987 Reference Point (SR 2122), 1993 Commander in Chief (SR 1987) and 1999 Oath (SR 1937). However, despite suffering lean patches in his training career, and suffering from constant ill health, his greatest triumph was his handling of the mighty Frankel (SR 2280) who had an unbeaten 14 race career, including the 2011 2000 Guineas. Henry was knighted in 2011 and died on 11th June 2013 aged 70.

December 2013-November 2015 Ed Walker
Ed Walker, former assistant trainer to both Roger Charlton and Luca Cumani, began training in his own right in 2010. In October 2010 he moved to the 24 box Authorized Yard at St Gatien, where he won the Listed Hyde Stakes in November 2010 at Kempton Park when Riggins dead-heated with Fanunalter. In December 2012 he transferred to Grange House Stables, where he trained for just one season, before leasing part of Warren Place in December 2013 after the death of Sir Henry Cecil. During his time at Warren Place he trained the 2014 Bengough Stakes winner Lightning Moon, while in 2015 Stormy Antarctic ran Johannes Vermeer to a head in the Criterium International at St Cloud. His lease at Warren Place expired in November 2015, so in early 2016 he moved to Eve Lodge Stables, his fourth different stable in as many years, remaining there until the end of the season. In December 2016 he left Newmarket, bound for Lambourn, continuing his training career at Kingsdown Stables in Upper Lambourn.
