Horse racing is a sport that is enjoyed by millions of people around the world. In the UK it is a historic pastime that is enjoyed by people from across society.
The springtime combination of the Cheltenham Festival and the Grand National is a hard act to follow, but if there’s one event that can do so with aplomb it’s Royal Ascot.
A dozen sprinting stars of generations past have won the King's Stand Stakes at Royal Ascot more than once, and Charlie Hills' Battaash is looking to add his name to the list this year.
As the Road to Cheltenham gets on the with Festival Trial Day announcing the official start, fans, pundits, and punters alike are getting to their final notes and choices for the May Cotswolds showdown.
The end of year is usually a galore time for horse racing spirits, and is always offering classics, going Down Under this time for the Railway Stakes.

There is a mix of emotions every year when the British Champions Day comes around.
British Champions Day has become one of the premier horse racing events on the annual calendar in a very short time.
Established in 2011, British Champions Day is now one of the most important festivals of the entire racing season.
The combination of the quality of racing, stunning fashion and Royal Processions that take place on each of the four days, stands this meeting apart from any other. A galloping, right-handed track, Ascot provides a stiff test for horses, which can become exceptionally testing in soft ground.
