Tickets for this raceday will now be available from Ticket Office East.
Ascot’s Free Raceday is an ideal event for novices and racing fans alike.

For racing enthusiasts, this is the curtain raiser for the Flat season. Featured is the £60,000 Group 3 Longines Sagaro Stakes, one of the most important trial races for The Gold Cup, which takes place on the third day of Royal Ascot, colloquially called ‘Ladies’ Day’.
