Royal Ascot 2018 starts on Tuesday 19th June and runs through to Saturday 23rd June with what is usually some of the best racing on the planet. There is an amazing £7.3m of prize money on offer at Royal Ascot 2018 with 8 Group 1 races and another 10 Group 2 & 3 races.
TUESDAY 19th June:
The meeting begins with three Group 1 races – to start the Queen Anne Stakes then the Kings Stand Stakes and finally the St James’s Palace Stakes.
WEDNESDAY 20th June:
A slightly more relaxed day but with an important race, The Group 1 Prince of Wales’s Stakes. There are also three Group 2 races and one Group 3 race so the quality on display is really pretty good. The crowd may not be quite as big as on other days but the atmosphere is still fantastic.
THURSDAY 21st June:
Thursday is important in two respects. It is the day of the Gold Cup, the preeminent race for stayers over 2m 3f 210y. It is also “Ladies” day when fashion and design take centre stage along with the racing. Apart from the Gold Cup there are another three Group races on the card. The Village Enclosure also opens on Thursday and is the place to be after the racing is over if you want to enjoy some live music and have a bop.
FRIDAY 22nd June:
Friday has two Group 1 races, the Coronation Stakes and the Commonwealth Cup and two other high class Group races to make this a day when you can see some super stars.
Saturday 23rd June:
The meeting finishes with a flourish on Saturday with the Group 1 Diamond Jubilee Stakes and the Group 2 Hardwick Stakes with the final race of the meeting being the 2m 5f 126y Queen Alexandra Stakes one of the longest flat races in the calendar. And once the racing is over Saturday night fever takes over with an after party in all enclosures.
So choose your day. Gates open at 10.30am on every day with the first race being 14.30. Admission varies based on the day and the enclosure but prices start at £37/person for racing on Tuesday and Wednesday. You should probably reckon on about £50/head unless you want to go into one of the better enclosures which start at around £75/head. Saturday is currently sold out of advance tickets.
