The Royal Ascot as a venue has a rich heritage – it has been in existence for over 300 years. It is not only a national institution but also a centerpiece on most social calendars. It is also known for being the ultimate venue for the very best racehorses from around the world.
Queen Anne saw the potential in the Ascot area to set up a race course. The very first race was held in 1711 and there were 7 horses in the race that year. Now a race is held in her memory – the Queen Anne Stakes.
Until 2001, the Ascot was a private company. In 2002, to redevelop the Course, it was incorporated as the Ascot Racecourse Ltd. – and charged with the responsibility of maintaining and running the place. Queen Elizabeth takes a keen interest in the races as an owner.
