With just under three weeks to go until the start of Royal Ascot 2015 we round up some of the latest news ahead of horse racing’s most stylish event. Eventmasters are delighted to offer guests official horse racing corporate hospitality with Royal Ascot hospitality packages, including Royal Ascot Ladies Day hospitality.
Frankie Dettori could partner American superstar California Chrome in gallop at Ascot ahead of the Royal Meeting. The US Horse of the Year who won the 2014 Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes, is currently being stabled at Newmarket with Rae Guest in his quest to win the Group 1 Prince of Wales Stakes. Guest said “California Chrome’s progress continues with the start of Royal Ascot less than three weeks away.” California Chrome will be one of the main attractions for guests enjoying the Royal Ascot hospitality.
John Gosden has ruled one time leading 2,000 Guineas hope Richard Pankhurst out of a possible comeback in the St James Palace Stakes. The three-year-old hasn’t been seen since his Listed Chesham Stakes win at Royal Ascot last year. He suffered a setback earlier in the season and was taken out of the first Classic of the season and he now looks unlikely to return at Royal Ascot.
Tryster winner of the Easter Classic at Lingfield earlier in the year will test his Royal Ascot credentials in the Group 3 Cantor Fitzgerald Research Brigadier Gerard Stakes at Sandown. Tryster is unbeaten on all-weather surfaces but has only one win on turf to his name. Trainer Charlie Appleby said “We’ve pencilled him in for a crack at the Prince of Wales’s and feel this is a good starting point to see how we figure against Group horses.” Tryster could be an exciting addition to the Group 1 field and his fast finishing still could thrill the guests enjoying the Royal Ascot hospitality packages.
