Since 1861, Newmarket has been associated with thoroughbreds. Equine artist Joseph Fowles built the Newmarket house and timber stables at 1 Young St, Randwick. The house was used for visiting racing identities, which continued for just 5 years. On 1 May 1867, the very first sale of thoroughbred yearlings is held at Newmarket Stables, Randwick. In 1874 the original stable was destroyed by fire. In 1885 the magnificent ‘Big Barn’ was built.
In 2018, this barn remains as a heritage site at Randwick. Newmarket Room restaurant at Riverside Stables, is intended to celebrate the history of the Newmarket site which will be reflected in the dining experience.
