The Packhorse Inn is delighted to lend its name in support of the Newmarket Racing XI – the “motley collection of trainers and others who have masqueraded as a cricket team in Newmarket since before the war”. Those were Chairman Jeremy Richardson’s words – not ours! We share the shirt with title sponsor, leading bloodstock auctioneers Tattersalls; C M Seven; Osborne Auto Sales and IMP Graphics. The first match of the season took place Sunday 11th May when Newmarket Racing XI enjoyed a 9 wicket victory over The Old Oundelian Cricket XI at Exning to get the 2014 season off to the best possible start. Could it have been Chris Lee’s “power burgers” served at the pre-season BBQ at The Packhorse Inn the night before that made the difference?
