The two-day Winter Festival is the highlight of the season headed by the King George VI Chase on Boxing Day. The traditional Christmas showpiece was won five times by Kauto Star, once more than Desert Orchid. There are two other Grade 1s on the card: the Christmas Hurdle and the Kauto Star Novices' Chase, formerly known as the Feltham.
September Stakes day is the standout on the flat with the eponymous all-age middle-distance feature sharing top billing with another Group 3, the Sirenia Stakes for three-year-olds. But the most valuable race on the card is the final of the London Mile handicap series.
