Your Guide to The Royal Ascot 2018


With the Royal Ascot fast approaching,
the trainers and their 509 horses are preparing for the journey to the most
valuable horse race in Britain. With a whopping 7.3m in prize money it’s sure
to be a thrilling event, Royal Ascot annually welcomes over 300,000 attendees –
including the Queen - over the five-day race spectacular and is certainly an
event to add to the calendar for both equestrian and non-equestrian people alike.

The Royal Ascot racecourse employs
an extra 6,500 temporary staff during the event, meaning 2,000 hours of training
to maintain the high standards of the Royal Ascott attendees. Keeping the
ground looking pristine for all of the visitors requires 3,500 cleaners working
24/7 to keep the racecourse perfectly presented.

The grooms job at the Royal Ascot
is probably one of the most important jobs, as they have to prepare and make
the horses look their best ahead of the race. Grooms also take care of all of the
horse’s needs, not just whilst at the Royal Ascot, but on a daily basis. Many
racehorses have been known to wear the Premier Equine
Magni-Teque Magnetic Horse Rug with Neck Cover and
the Premier Equine
Nano-Tec Infrared Horse Rug as part of their daily routine as well as helping prepare
their muscles before and after a race.

The Royal Ascot isn’t just well-known
for the horse racing, in coming years it has become an occasion for fashion and
style - famous for some particularly interesting and, in some cases, outrageous
headpieces. In the words of Royal Ascot "Royal Ascot is synonymous
with sartorial elegance. This is upheld by our dress code, which invites guests
to contribute to an occasion heralded as a major fashion event in its own
