Ascot, founded in 1711 by Queen Anne, is the most famous racecourse in the world.
Since it’s £200m redevelopment, undertaken with the aim of creating the best racecourse in the world, Ascot has become a peerless sporting venue. The resulting arena is synonymous with quality and excellence mirroring Ascot’s unparalleled race programme and reputation as host to the world’s greatest race meeting.
Now in it’s seventh year, the QIPCO British Champions Series incorporates the top 35 flat races in the British horseracing calendar. Having been competed over 27 racedays at the Country’s 10 leading racecourses (including the Guineas Festival at Newmarket, the Derby Festival at Epsom, Royal Ascot, Glorious Goodwood, the Ebor Festival at York and the St Leger Festival at Doncaster), the eyes of the racing world will be focused on Ascot for the climax to the Series – QIPCO British Champions Day – the richest day in British horseracing offering a staggering £4.2 million in prize money.
