What is the Hardwicke Stakes?
The Hardwicke Stake is a prestigious Group 2 flat horse race held at Ascot racecourse every year as part of the Royal Ascot festival. The race is named after the 5th Earl of Hardwicke who was a former chairman of the Jockey Club.
As a medium distance race, this is a race where you'll find both sprinters and long distance runners who may be looking to stretch their horizons, sprinters who could push for longer distance races and long distance runners who perhaps are finding their stamina wanting in longer races. This race often attracts high-quality runners and has been won by some very highly regarded horses coming out victorious on the final day of the Royal Ascot festival.
