About the King George Weekend and King George VI Stakes

Behind Royal Ascot, the King George weekend is without a doubt the most important and historic meeting in the Ascot racing calendar. The first day of racing offers a fantastic show; however, it is the final day that hosts the most prestigious prizes with the likes of the King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Qipco stakes taking centre stage.

The King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Qipco Stakes is a prestigious horse race held annually at Ascot Racecourse in England. It is one of the most important and iconic flat races in the British horse racing calendar. The race was first run in 1951, taking its name from the reigning monarch, King George VI, and his consort, Queen Elizabeth (the Queen Mother).

The King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Qipco Stakes is typically held in late July and is open to horses aged three years and older. It covers a distance of 1 mile and 4 furlongs (2,414 meters). The race attracts some of the best middle-distance horses from around the world and is known for its competitive field and high-class participants.

The reason the King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Qipco Stakes has such a long name is because we used to see two separate races with the Queen Elizabeth Diamond Stakes and King George VI stakes and now the two races have merged into one during the Qipco King George Weekend.
