Where is Ascot Racecourse?
Ascot Racecourse is just north of Ascot on the A329 and around 35km west of London. Ascot rail station is less than 10 minutes walk away with a journey time of less than an hour from London Waterloo and half that time from Reading.
What is Ascot Racecourse Famous For?
Undoubtedly the Royal meeting held annually in June. Boasting high-quality action on the track, Royal Ascot is one of the biggest social events on the British calendar with the Queen leading a procession of carriages at the start of each day. Queen Anne founded the track in 1711.
Ascot is also a premier jumps track with its two-day Christmas meeting often featuring Grade 1 winners and future Cheltenham Festival contenders.
Ascot Racecourse Track Specifics
Ascot has two courses - the round course, shaped more like a triangle, and the straight mile. The round course is right-handed with a short run-in of two and a half furlongs (500m) from the final turn. That run-in starts uphill but then levels out before a slightly downhill finish.
On the jumps side, its fences present stiffer tests than most in Britain.
Biggest Meeting's at Ascot Racecourse
Royal Ascot stages a plethora of high-class races and big-field handicaps attracting horses and spectators from all over the world. There are eight Group 1s across the five days including the Prince of Wales' Stakes over 10 furlongs (2000m), the Queen Anne Stakes over a mile (1600m) and the Diamond Jubilee Stakes over the six furlongs (1200m).
And there is the Gold Cup on the Thursday, commonly known as 'Ladies Day'. This two-and-a-half mile (4000m) test is the most prestigious flat stayers' race in the world.
