16th October 2021 Ascot Racecourse

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 substantial purse as they bid to follow in the hoof prints of British and European racing legends.

After racing was held behind closed doors in 2020, we are delighted and looking forward to be able to welcome you back to QIPCO British Champions Day in 2021 assuming it is safe to do so and adheres to local government guidelines.

 

 

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.

2020, whilst taking place behind closed doors, so racing action of the highest quality. Addeybb ran out a ready winner of the feature QIPCO Champion Stakes after finishing second in 2019. Hollie Doyle also became the first female jockey to win a race at QIPCO British Champions Day - riding Glen Shiel to victory in the QIPCO British Champions Sprint.

We wait with anticipation to see who will emerge as a key contender once the 2021 season gets underway.
