05 Jul Summer Cocktail Party
Put your glad rags on as you are invited to the largest cocktail party of the summer! This is your chance to dress to impress as Ascot hosts an event of pure glamour and sophistication in our collection of relaxed outdoor cocktail lounges. Our highly skilled mixologists will be creating masterpieces for the senses set to the backdrop of a traditional English summer garden party as you watch the Sport of Kings.
As you arrive, you will be serenaded by music on the Bandstand. This will then move to a lively cover band after racing, where you and your friends can strut your stuff on the outdoor dance floor for an hour after the last race.
Please note the summer cocktail party will be based in the Grandstand Admission area so all racegoers will have the chance to enjoy a cocktail.
The Group 1, King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes (sponsored by Betfair) is the feature race – and highlight of the Betfair Weekend – This race commemorates Her Majesty The Queen’s late parents and is the European mid-season middle distance championship and worth £1,000,000. “The King George” is a QIPCO British Champions Series race and part of the Breeders’ Cup Win and You’re In scheme.
The supporting card is second to none with the £100,000 Betfair Summer Double First Leg International Handicap the big betting race of the day and the Group 2 Transformers and Rectifiers Summer Mile.
