More About Royal Ascot - The Royal Family's Racing Event of Choice
for being a favourite of the Royal Family, the racecourse itself was originally opened in 1711 by Queen Anne with the first
race, 'Her Majesty's Plate', held within August that same year. Over three centuries later this glamorous event is considered
the centrepiece of the horse-racing calendar, and plays host to the Queen and her family every year.
With prize money
of £5 million up for grabs, these heats attract racing's most agile racehorses and only the most skilled jockeys for eighteen
races spread out over five action packed days a year. The races are also renowned for showcasing the latest fashions - with
ladies sporting glamorous dresses and donning large hats amongst a sea of top hats and cravats. Still, the highlight of the
meet is undoubtedly the awarding of the Gold Cup. For a week of finely bred horses and glorious indulgence check out listings
