Royal Ascot 2021: A Beginner’s Companion

Royal Ascot is revered for its high fashion, exceptional racing and fine dining experiences – not to mention the royalty that graces the event each year.

The racing spectacular takes place over five days with up to six world-class races taking place each day, accompanied by a number of other must-see happenings. So, for the new racegoer, it’s understandable to be overwhelmed.

Betting…

Being one of the most prestigious events in the horse racing calendar, The Royal Ascot attracts the finest from the equestrian world to compete for huge sums of money. Last year a record amount of £13,452,000 was the total sum in prize money, so its no wonder that racegoers are eager to bet.

For the novice, placing a bet on a horse may seem like a complex task but it is easy to enjoy a “flutter” at the races without breaking the bank.

First, buy a Racecard, or look through the Racing Post which lists the names of all the horses to be competing for that day, as well as their jockey and trainer, which tends to be an effective way of identifying your winner. This information is first available online five days before the event.

Check the condition of the track. It’s wise to remember that the track’s condition will impact a horse’s performance. Get your hands on the “going report” as this will inform you of the racing grounds moisture content and surface condition.

Check the odds! Low odds on a horse means that it is more likely to win, whereas higher odds indicate that it is less likely to win. Keep in mind that odds will fluctuate until the race commences.

Now decide whether you want to bet “To Win” or “Each Way”. Betting “To Win” is as simple as it sounds, the horse you bet on must win in order for you to make a return. To bet “Each Way” is double the cost but means that you win if your horse finishes first, second, third, or fourth (dependant on how many runners there are).

Where to find the best views…

Style Guide…

First time attending one of the most prestigious meetings of the horse racing season? Stressing over what to wear? We’ve got all the tips for you right here.

Think traditional, think regal, think formal.

Ladies, if you’re in the Royal Enclosure or the Queen Anne Enclosure strapless and sheer dresses or tops will not be permitted. All dresses, skirts, jumpsuits and trouser suits must fall at or below the knee. Hats or headpieces must be worn at all times.

Gentleman, in the Royal Enclosure you are to wear either black or grey morning dress and that should be paired with a black or grey top hat. However, if you are in the Queen Anne Enclosure a full-length suit of matching colour and a formal tie, which must be worn at all times will suffice. Socks must also be worn.

In the Village Enclosure, formality eases a little and ladies may now wear either a hat, headpiece or fascinator of any sort. Again, strapless and sheer dresses or tops, including off-the-shoulder wear is impermissible.

Gentlemen in the Village Enclosure may now wear a jacket with full-length trousers should they choose to. Bow ties and cravats may also be worn in this enclosure.

There is no official dress code in the Windsor Enclosure but ladies and gentleman are encouraged to wear formal attire. Moreover, it only adds to the Royal Ascot experience!

Also, don’t be too fashionably late. You’d want to avoid the crowds and arrive in good time to see all the racing action.

Royal Ascot’s Most Iconic Horses

Royal Ascot is an unrivalled event. The five days alone attracts well over 300,000 racegoers who enjoy everything this splendid meeting has to offer. From a multitude of Group One races to the statement fashion choices displayed and luxurious hospitality options – Royal Ascot has much to adore.

As the excitement for Royal Ascot 2020 continues to build, we’ve put together five of the most iconic horses to run in Royal Ascot history. Perfect for fuelling your desire for next year’s event!

A History of Great Runners at Royal Ascot

Brown Jack (1924–1948)

A horse of many talents – Brown Jack was a thoroughbred racehorse that raced both on hurdles and on flat. He specialised in longer races and throughout his career won in many prominent races including: Cheltenham’s Champion Hurdle and the Queen Alexandra Stakes.

During the years of 1929 and 1934, Brown Jack achieved a victory which is highly unlikely to be repeated again. The runner won the Queen Alexandra Stakes at Royal Ascot for six years in a row – an achievement like no other!

The fact that Brown Jack started his career as hurdler is a unique trait. As a four-year-old, he attained glory at Cheltenham Festival before he switched to flat racing in the same year. Demonstrating his talent in different forms.

Brown Jack also won the Ascot Stakes title in 1928, his trainer Ivor Antony saw him win a further ten titles over the next six years.

In honour of the prolific winner, Ascot holds a spectacular bronze statue of the horse.

Attraction (foaled 2001)

Attraction will be remembered as a Royal Ascot icon following her run in the 2003 edition fo the G2 Queen Mary Stakes. At just two-years-old, the unstylish pedigree, having been born with two crooked legs took the Royal Ascot race by storm.

Unbeaten in seven races, the Mark Johnston-trained horse returned a year later to record an eighth consecutive win in the Grade 1 Coronation Stakes. Despite having abnormal legs, the mare had great success and Johnston is regarded as a phenomenal trainer.

After winning on her racing debut she went on to win four more successive races before going lame for a year. She was the first filly to win both the English and Irish 1000 Guineas and during her career, won 10 of her 15 races – a truly remarkable horse.

Yeats (foaled 2001)

Another phenomenal racer – Yeats is an Irish thoroughbred racehorse who has seven Group One victories to his name. He is also the only horse to win Ascot’s Gold Cup four times successively.

Yeats’ four successive Gold Cup triumphs during 2006 and 2009 ensures he goes down in history as one of the greatest horses ever to grace the Royal Ascot turf. Much to the glory of trainer Aiden O’Brien.

His wins in the Coronation and Goodwood Cups helped in setting a great platform for his future successes.

The runner’s dominant displays in the Gold Cup earned him the honour of European Champion Stayer four years in a row.

Shortly after his retirement, Royal Ascot paid tribute to the four-time champion. In 2011, a statue within the Parade Ring was established, forever commemorating Yeats’ extraordinary accomplishments.

Black Caviar (foaled 2006)

The international superstar that is Black Caviar. The Australian thoroughbred racehorse was undefeated in twenty-five races, including fifteen Group One victories.

In 2012, Australia’s most celebrated horse ran the Diamond Jubilee Stakes, establishing a commanding lead to triumph in the final furlong.

Black Caviar retired as one of the most famous horses around the world. With the privilege of ending her career with a flawless record of twenty five consecutive victories. Nonetheless, her stunning performances at Royal Ascot shines brightest.

Frankel (foaled 2008)

The best horse ever seen. Frankel is British Thoroughbred racehorse who managed to remain unbeaten in his fourteen-race career and was the highest-rated racehorse in the world from May 2011.

His trainer, the late and great Sir Henry Cecil described him as “the best horse I have ever seen” – a grand title to bear, to say the least.

Frankel’s 2011 performance in the 2011 Queen Elizabeth II Stakes certainly contributed to establishing his formidable reputation as one of the greatest.

His commanding display in the 2000 Guineas was one that cemented his legacy. The other competitors knew they were in the presence of significant greatness as Tom Queally drove his mount clear of all his Royal Ascot pursuers with incredible ease.

After the Queen Anne Stakes on Champions Day, Frankel was awarded a rating of 147 – the highest rating to ever be bestowed on a racer. Undoubtedly cementing his name as one of the greatest of all time.

Estimate (foaled 2009)

The Irish-bred horse Estimate is a thoroughbred racehorse who has won many major titles. A notable victory was the Queen’s Vase that she won at Royal Ascot when she was a three-year-old. The runner continued to attain success, winning the Sagaro Stakes and the Gold Cup.

The superstar filly is owned by Queen Elizabeth II and trained by Sir Michael Stoute.

Indeed, the Royal family have always been closely allied with Royal Ascot and a victory for a horse, such as Estimate, bearing The Queen’s colours is celebrated and cherished more than any other winner.

In 2012, Sir Michael Stoute trained Estimate who carried the Queen’s silks into the Royal Ascot winners’ enclosure, after taking the Queen’s Vase title with Ryan Moore.

The next year, the four-year-old filly entered into grade one racing for the first time when she ran in the Ascot Gold Cup. Ryan Moore timed his late charge to complete perfection and Estimate was able to make history and claim Gold Cup glory for the Royal Family for the first time.

Who Will Make History at Royal Ascot 2020?

As we pay tribute to these glorious horses, room must be made for the next generation of Royal Ascot iconic runners.

With Royal Ascot 2020 speedily coming upon us, it will be interesting to see which horses will make history at one of Britain’s most prized horse racing events. You do not want to miss out!

There’s Only One Frankie Dettori

Winners

14:30   A’Ali 5/1

15:05   Sangarius 13/2

15:40   Star Catcher 4/1

16:20   Stradivarius 1/1

17:00   Biometric 28/1

17:35   South Pacific 22/1

Ladies Day brought racegoers into Royal Ascot with bright, bold, statement pieces, nothing less than what you could’ve imagined for Ladies Day. The sun was shining or at least trying to, being one of the better days of the previous two over at Ascot.

The man of the moment Frankie Dettori had a terrific start to the day yesterday placing first in four of the first races, with a seventh Gold Cup victory. But that’s where it stopped for Dettori as after his fourth win his luck soon faded. After the great performance from yesterday Dettori is now in first place for the leading jockey of Royal Ascot 2019. With two days until the final day of Royal Ascot can he hold onto that title at  he continues to play at the Frankie playground.

Dettori kicked off his four consecutive wins in the Norfolk Stakes on A’Ali. The horse was the first Maiden to win this race in 30 years. A close call at the finishing post as A’Ali and Ventura Rebel paced over the finish with mini seconds apart. While Dettori’s second win was just the opposite of that with a clear length ahead of the others over the finishing post.

Star Catcher defiently caught up with the other runners in the Ribblesdale Stakes, leading two furlongs out. Making it a third win of the day for the legend of the day.

The awaited Gold Cup race saw Dettori take his fourth and last win of the day. The leading jockey achieved a record breaking seventh win of the Gold Cup. Stradivarius being the bookies favourite and delivered what Royal Ascot racegoers wanted, with the horse retaining a second Gold Cup. Taking Ladies Day by storm Dettori also made trainer Gosden day as he brought home two wins for the trainer on Star Catcher and Stradivarius.

Young jockey Harry Bentley has a taste of victory with his first win at Royal Ascot stopping Frankie Dettori in his tracks from getting an all clear 5/5 wins at Royal Ascot. The young jockey rode Biometric out pacing Dettori’s horse Turgenev who lead the race until the final moments when it really counted.

South Pacific gave jockey Seamie his first win at Royal Ascot 2019, taking the last win of Ladies Day. Trainer Aiden O’Brien also taking his fourth win at Ascot this week.

Royal Ascot Day Two Review

WINNERS

14:30 – Raffle Prize 18/1

15:05 – Dashing Willoughby 6/1

15:40 – Crystal Ocean 3/1

16:20 – Move Swiftly 9/1

17:00 – Afaak 20/1

17:35 – Southern Hills 7/1

We began the second day of Royal Ascot yesterday, again it didn’t disappoint. The weather wasn’t on everybody’s side but that doesn’t stop the horse racing and celebrations down at Ascot.

Frankie Dettori was off to a good start on the second day of Royal Ascot winning the Queen Mary Stakes, riding Raffle Prize. Dettori not being a big fan of the wet weather didn’t seem to be bothered by this after taking the win. The race saw Kimari lead until the final furlongs when Raffle Prize paced to the finishing post. An overall good performance from Kimari who had only had one previous entry before coming to Ascot.

It all came down to the last few strides as Dashing Willoughby, Barbados and Nayef Road race it out to be the first over the finishing line in the Queen Vase race yesterday afternoon. Dashing Willoughby was the first to hit the finishing line with Barbados coming in second place and Nayef Road in third. A very tight finish from the three horses, but a great finish for jockey Oisin Murphy who had a fantastic start to his come back after missing Salisbury earlier this month.

And Frankie Dettori strikes again for a second time as he takes first place with Crystal Ocean in the Prince Of Walesʼs Stakes, leaving behind Magical just a few strides from the finishing post. Dettori will be back for the Gold Cup at Ladies Day riding Stradivarius. Can the horse win the anticipated Gold Cup for a second time.

Daniel Tudhope leads Move Swiftly into first place in the fillies group 2 race. He now becomes one of the leading jockeys at Royal Ascot in the short two day period with 3 wins, also helping trainer William Haggas achieve a third win at Royal Ascot. Move Swiftly took first place over Rawdaa who was ridden by third place leading jockey Frankie Dettori, who definitely don’t believe third time lucky as he was defeated for his third win of the day.

A photo finish needed for the Royal Hunt Cup as Afaak takes the win after 260 days off, coming back with a massive win. Clon Coulis finishing second place but favourite New Graduate was nowhere to be seen near the finish, leaving Dettori with 2 wins at Ascot on the second day of Royal Ascot.

Show Me Show Me wanted it’s time to shine in the last race at Ascot yesterday after breaking out of the stalls to run the track solo. The lively filly became inpatient while waiting for the other horses to get into their stalls but later was withdrawn from the race. Southern Hills took the win home for jockey Ryan Moore after beating Platinum Star to the finishing post, giving Moore his third win at Ascot this week equalising with Danny Tudhope for the leading jockey.

Ladies Day commences today and we are looking forward to seeing some of the great races Royal Ascot has to offer, and of course not forgetting the great outfits. For more updates on Royal Ascot head over to our Twitter @EventmastersUK.

Royal Ascot Day One Review

WINNERS

14:00 – Lord Glitters

15:05 – Arizona

15:40 – Blue Point

16:20 – Circus Maximus

17:00 – The Grand Visir

17:35 – Addeybb

What a great start to Royal Ascot we saw yesterday, at the opening day of the 5 day celebrations. A fantastic entrance by the Queen and the royals who where brought into Ascot on a horse and carriage. The Queen wearing a stunning baby blue ensemble, which seemed to be the choice of colour for most ladies at Ascot yesterday.

The first race saw favourite and last year’s winner Accidental Agent left in the starting stall, allowing Lord Glitters to take 1st place at Ascot.

Back to back Champion jockey Silva De Sousa was given a 7 day ban and fined £1050 after using his whip above the permitted level on horse Beat The Bank, who came second in The Queen Anne race leaving peoples favourite Arizona to finish in 1st place. Still only a young horse Arizona is one to watch in the future after the brilliant win at Ascot.

What a replay from last year did we get from Blue Point and Battaash with both horses going head to head again at the final furlong, Blue Point taking 1st place. Battaash wasn’t looking strong at the beginning with the horse staying behind, but that changed heading into the final furlongs.

A fantastic start to Royal Ascot for jockey Ryan Moore who had a double win with Circus Maximus in The St James’s Palace Stakes and Arizona in the Kings Stand Stakes. Moore is set to ride the Queens horse Seniority in today’s Royal Hunt Cup.

The Grand Visir takes 1st place in The Ascot Stakes after a good run from Jukebox who lead the race until half way around the track. That was until The Grand Visir and Buildmeupbuttercup took the lead heading into the final stride, The Grand Visir taking 1st place leaving Buildmeupbuttercup in second place.

The final race of the day saw trainer William Haggas take home his 1st win at Royal Ascot 2019 with horse Addeybb. It became a one horse race at the final furlong when Addeybb took the lead being lengths in front of the pack.
