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 £4 million prize money - 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.

We are delighted and looking forward to welcoming you back to QIPCO British Champions Day this year. Tickets to the King Edward VII Enclosure and Winning Post enclosure are now completely sold out.

The best thoroughbreds from across the globe will be in action on a stellar card of top-class racing. Each race represents a chance for the best equine athletes in their division to compete for £4 million in prize money and become Champion.

With six races attracting the highest calibre of horses, jockeys and trainers all battling it out, who will come out on top?

Returning Champions Addeybb (QIPCO Champion Stakes) and Trueshan (QIPCO British Champions Long Distance Cup) look set to try and retain their crowns, a feat that has only ever been achieved by Cracksman since QIPCO British Champions Day began in 2011.

The Queen Elizabeth II Stakes (sposnored by QIPCO) is shaping up to be one of the races of the season with Palace Pier, Alcohol Free and Baeed all touted to take their chance - and let's not forget reigning Champion, The Revenant.

Make sure you don't miss out on what looks set to be a spectacular days racing at Ascot on Saturday 16th October.
