QIPCO British Champions Day is the Ultimate Raceday and the finale of the British Flat racing season.

Ascot racecourse is set alight as the kings and queens of the turf fight it out for their share of the nation’s most valuable raceday.

The best horses and jockeys from across the globe will be in action to compete for a £2.5 million purse as they bid to follow in the hoof prints of British and European racing legends.

This year’s event will unfortunately be held behind closed doors in line with the new government policy.

All those with tickets for the day will be entitled to a full refund or the chance to roll over their ticket until QIPCO British Champions Day 2021.

 

 

The best thoroughbreds from across the globe will be in action to compete for £2.5 million worth of prize money. Each race represents a chance for the best equine athletes in their division to become Champion. While the card is completed by the £100,000 Balmoral Handicap.
