Ascot Races

Ascot is renowned for thoroughbred horse racing, it plays host to nine out of the 32 annual Group 1 horse races, in the UK. Established in 1711 the first race took place with Royalty cheering on the first ever winner. The race course is located within the shadow of Windsor Castle and has strong Royal connections.

The Ascot race course puts on 26 days of horse racing throughout the year. The majority of races are flat meetings (18 flat meets), between the months of May and including October. During the winter months, jump race meets are put on though the biggest event comes in June, The Gold Cup. The King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes run in July and are by far Ascots biggest and most prestigious horse race events.

The racecourse now accounts for a total of approximately 10% of all UK horse race goers, totalling 600,000 visitors a year. Ascot holds the record for being the first racecourse to reach the 500,000-people visitor mark.

Ascot Betting

At the racecourse, you’ll find Ascot’s betting ring in front of the main Grandstand. Within the betting ring you’ll find odds and horse information on all that days racing. The bookmakers within the ring will also clearly display their minimum stake value, whether they’re taking on Each Way, or only Win bets along with their current odds.

Totepools are present throughout the racecourse and display horse odds and offer the full range of bets across all the days races. From a trifecta (top 3 place finishes) to a straight win, the tote offers you the chance to win the pot with winnings being dependent on how many other winners there are along with the total pot staked.

Within the main Grandstand you’ll also find a Betfred betting shop, so you needn’t miss out other horse racing meets too. The Winning Post usually operates a betting shop facility too, again this is located within the Grandstand.

Remember to consider tips and look out for the best odds for your tipped horse before placing your bet. Don’t let the face take over.
