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 in 2021.

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.

Tickets for QIPCO British Champions Day 2022 are not currently on sale, but sign up to email updates to be the first to hear when they do at early bird prices.

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?

2021 saw a thrilling day of action unfold out on the track, in one of the most memorable days racing in the UK for several years.

It was a case of rinse and repeat for Hollie Doyle and Trueshan as they secured back-to-back wins in the QIPCO British Champions Long Distance Cup for Alan King. It was nearly a mirror of the first two races from last year for Doyle as she nearly scooped the QIPCO British Champions Sprint on Glen Shiel again, only to be denied by Creative Force.

Baaeed and Palace Pier fought out a memorable dual in the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes (sponsored by QIPCO), with Baaeed coming out on top to remain unbeaten.

The feature race, the QIPCO Champion Stakes went to France as Sealiway ran out a ready winner under Mickael Barzalona for Cedric Rossi.
