What is British Champions Day at Ascot?

British Champions Day is a relatively new addition to the horse racing calendar. The event was only introduced in 2011, but has already established itself as one of the most important events of the flat racing season.

The day features final races in 5 divisions of the British Champions Series, which brings together races throughout the year into a larger tournament. The British Champions Series was also created in 2011, prompting the racing organisers to organise a day that the Series can come to a close. 2 of the biggest end of season meetings at the time were at Ascot and Newmarket. Organisers recognised the popularity in these meetings and combined the 2, creating British Champions Day at Ascot.

The Diadem Stakes and the Queen Elizabeth Stakes remained at Ascot, whilst the Champions Stakes, Jockey Club Cup and Pride Stakes moved from Newmarket. The Diadem Stakes became the British Champions Sprint, Jockey Club Cup was renamed the British Champions Long Distance Cup and the Pride Stakes became the British Champions Fillies’ and Mares’ Stakes. In addition to these classic races, the Balmoral Handicap was introduced as the final race of the day.
