Able Friend In Action

Royal Ascot International Stars to Shine

Royal Ascot begins tomorrow and as the best horses from around the globe assemble for the sport’s most prestigious event, we look at the international stars who will thrill Eventmasters Royal Ascot hospitality packages guests over five glorious days of action. Royal Ascot hospitality packages available for everyday of the meeting.

Able Friend – Queen Anne Stakes (Tuesday 16th June)

The Hong Kong superstar will kick-off a fantastic week of action in the opening race of Royal Ascot, The Queen Anne Stakes. The five-year-old possesses a devastating turn of foot and has won 11 of his last 16 starts. John Moore’s charge has won four Group 1 contests in six starts this season and he will undoubtedly be one of the week’s main attractions for Royal Ascot hospitality guests.

Solow – Queen Anne Stakes (Tuesday 16th June)

French superstar Solow will clash with Able Friend in what promises to be a mouth-watering encounter between two top class performers. His performance on Dubai World Cup night was one of the best this season and he followed it up with a win in the Prix d’Ispahan. The clash with the Hong Kong star could be one of the greatest race’s the famous meeting has ever seen, a true highlight for Royal Ascot hospitality guests.

Brazen Beau – Diamond Jubilee Stakes (Saturday 20th June)

The three-year-old leads a talented team of Australian sprinters heading to Royal Ascot this week. Chris Waller’s charge destroyed the field in the Group 1 Newmarket Handicap at Flemington in March, and despite the fact he was getting weight from his older rivals the manner of his win suggests he will be a force to be reckoned with.

California Chrome – Prince of Wales Stakes (Wednesday 17th June)

The 2014 US Horse of the Year was at the top of the wish list for Royal Ascot and he will strut his stuff in the feature race on day two – The Prince of Wales Stakes. He posted a very solid effort in the Dubai World Cup and looks set to run a big race under British jockey William Buick. The Kentucky Derby winner will be another major attraction for racegoers and Royal Ascot hospitality guests.

Hootenanny – Commonwealth Cup (Friday 19th June)

Last season’s Windsor Castle Stakes winner returns to Royal Ascot for the newest Group 1 race the Commonwealth Cup. Wesley Ward’s three-year-old looks his best chance of the week, after his easy 2014 Royal Ascot success he went to the Breeders Cup and won the Juvenile Turf Mile in impressive fashion. He will be very tough to beat for a trainer who loves this meeting.

Royal Ascot promises to be another superb occasion, the international team assembled for the meeting is probably the best in history. The chance to see the world’s best horses in action will be an exciting one for Royal Ascot hospitality packages guests.
