About this raceday

Following the Prime Ministers announcement on 22nd February regarding the Government's roadmap out of lockdown, Ascot is currently formulating plans for the return of spectators to racedays. We will provide a further update as early as possible in April when the start of step two is confirmed. If you would like to be notified of any developments, please complete your details below. 

The QIPCO King George Diamond Racing Weekend is Ascot's midsummer showpiece, hosting Europe's premier mid-season contest over a mile and half, The King George VI and Queen Elizabeth QIPCO Stakes. A race won by countless legendary names including Nijinsky, Mill Reef, Dancing Brave and Nashwan was no less exciting last year as we welcomed back the much-loved defending champion Enable, with the extraordinary mare winning a record third King George title.
