The Christmas Meeting

Ascot
Friday 21st - Saturday 22nd December 2018

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.

Today unrivalled entertaining facilities are offered against a backdrop of sporting history providing an occasion your guests will always remember.

The Christmas Meeting includes Ascot’s most valuable day of Jumps racing.  The featured race is the two-mile £150,000 Ladbroke Handicap Hurdle, the highest profile event of its type outside the Cheltenham Festival.

On a day when hurdlers take centre stage, the Grade 1 Long Walk Hurdle, which is the early season championship for stayers, caps a top-quality programme.
