Royal Ascot At Home

Royal Ascot At Home

Guide to Royal Ascot at Home

The first horse racing bet I put on was at University. I remember vividly wandering into the betting shop across the road, to ask how I could put a bet on. I was a newbie but everyone helped me work out how to put a bet on, and what odds meant. That year I won…first, third and fourth place.

Ascot is the most well-known horse races and people look forward to it every year. I went to Royal Ascot a few years ago. In the sunshine – drinking bubbles and having a few cheeky bets. It really is an amazing experience.

Royal Ascot

History of Ascot

In 1711, Queen Anne rode her horse from Windsor Castle to the field and said, “This would be a fine place for a race.” Later that year, the first event was held, and the tradition has continued ever since. The royal procession has been going strong since 1825.

The Royal Enclosure is an invitation-only section of the Ascot Racecourse. It was established in 1807, originally only for guests of King George III. Around 300,000 people attend the Royal Ascot every year.
