Royal Ascot

Tuesday 19th June – Saturday 23rd June 2018

Few sporting venues can match the rich heritage and history of Ascot Racecourse.

Over the past 300 years, Ascot has established itself as a national institution; with Royal Ascot becoming the centrepiece of the British social calendar and the ultimate stage for the best racehorses in the world.

It was Queen Anne in 1711 that first saw the potential for a racecourse at Ascot (in those days called East Cote).

Whilst out riding near Windsor Castle she came upon an area of open heath that looked, in her words, “ideal for horses to gallop at full stretch”.

The First Race Meeting

The first race meeting ever held at Ascot took place later that year, on Saturday 11th August. The inaugural even was Her Majesty’s Plate worth 100 guineas and open to any horse, mare or gelding over six years of age. Each horse was required to carry a weight of 12 stone and the seven runners were all English Hunter, rather different to the speedy thoroughbreds that race on the flat today.

The nature of the contest also bares little resemblance to modern day racing at Ascot. That race consisted of three separate heats, each four miles long – about the length of todays Grand National course. The winning horse would have required tremendous stamina, but sadly there is no record of who claimed that first plate.

Queen Anne’s gift to racing, founding the Royal Racecourse, is marked by the tradition of opening Royal Ascot with the Queen Anne Stakes.
