Ascot Racecourse


Although the whole week at Royal Ascot is a fashion show like no other, it is Thursday when the designer creations and millinery masterpieces reach the greatest heights. Thursday’s highlight and feature race is the Group 1 Gold Cup, a battle of stamina and determination over two miles and four furlongs.

This gruelling long distance world championship is not for the faint-hearted. In 2015, Trip To Paris caused a 12-1 upset in the Gold Cup at Royal Ascot, beating two horses that would have provoked much more celebration among the ladies’ day crowd. Ryan Moore, seeking a record-equalling eighth winner of the week, was second aboard Kingfisher after terrible trouble in running up the straight, while third place went to the previously unbeaten favourite, Forgotten Rules.

Ascot racecourse and grounds are magnificent and provide ideal surroundings for the Royal Procession, signalling a day at Royal Ascot has truly begun. After the last race, racegoers can celebrate their winnings by joining in with the traditional singing around the Bandstand.

Corinthian Sports are proud to offer hospitality on the lawns and terraces of the Queen Anne Enclosure where you can enjoy first rate views of the day’s races, joining the jubilant crowds as they cheer each winner home. You’ll be at the heart of the day’s activity. Close to the runners and riders in the Pre-Parade and Parade Ring and front row as the Royal Procession passes by the Grandstand.
