About

Renamed Royal Ascot Trials Day in 2019, Ascot's first Flat meeting focuses on some of the key preparation races ahead of the Royal Meeting in June.

The seven-race card focuses on preparations for the Royal Meeting with four specific trials on the card, led by the Group 3 Longines Sagaro Stakes, won in recent years both Colour Vision and Estimate on their way to Gold Cup glory at Royal Ascot. Last year, this race was taken by Dee Ex Bee, who finished second to champion stayer, Stradivarius, in the 2019 Gold Cup.

The races at Royal Ascot Trials Day are an important opportunity for younger horses to gain valuable experience at the track ahead of Royal Ascot.

Off the track, this is a leisurely day to have a flutter and sample the many bars and restaurants on offer. Racegoers can gain a fascinating insight into behind-the-scenes racing at a racecourse dating back more than three centuries.
