The World’s Most Luxurious, Extravagant Jockey Club


Homa, an ancient Greek poet, mentioned the race of the horse drawn chariot, which has been considered to be the oldest record of the horse racing. However, the inscription on the stone inscription found in Asia Minor shows that the king of Assyrian had a full-time trainer for several hundred years before the war. In the 7th Century B.C. there were four carriages. About 40 years after the emergence of the four-horse horses, the horse race was driven by the rider, which was the real beginning of horse racing. But horse-racing events such as modern horse-racing that attracted spectators began in ancient Greece and Rome. In the heyday of the Roman Empire, there were horse racing, horse riding, and so-called Roman horse racing. There were frequent racehorses, professional horse-racing staff, runways, disputes over race rules, lawsuits about doping horses, betting on horses, and rioting among spectators. In some occasions, a French beret is popular among the public. 

For the past 300 years, the Royal Ascot Jockey Club has been the most luxurious jockey club around the world, and the traditional British people are very proud of it. In 1711, Queen Anne of England founded the event. Located in Berkshire, not far from Windsor Castle, the Royal Ascot Jockey Race has been held every summer in Berkshire for 300 years, except for 2005, when it was relocated to Yorkshire as a result of repairs to the Berkshire Stadium.In 1913, the British Parliament passed a bill announcing the creation of a Board of Directors, which became a private company in 2001, continuing to host this “great event created by a great monarch of England 300 years ago.” For hundreds of years, it was the main reason why the Jockey Club was called the Royal Ascot m   Jockey Club.

In 1807, the Royal Ascot Jockey Club for the first time designated the third day of the race as “Golden Cup Day” because it was the most crucial and busiest day of the race. But many Britons, including the royal family, call Golden Cup Day a Lady’s Day. Queen Anne was one of the women who supported the Ascot Jockey Club from the start, because it attracted a large number of female spectators.

The Queen’s horses will also compete, and it is considered a great honor for knights to ride a horse race dedicated to the Queen. The Ascot Jockey Club has a total prize of £3 million. The Gold Cup, the Royal Hunting Cup and the Queen’s Vase are the prizes of the three victorious knights.

The Royal Ascot is the centrepiece of Ascot’s year and dates back to 1711 when it was founded by Queen Anne. Every year Royal Ascot is attended by Elizabeth II and other members of the British Royal Family such as The Prince of Wales, arriving each day in a horse-drawn carriage with the Royal procession taking place at the start of each race day and the raising of the Queen’s Royal Standard. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge also attend, as well as the Earl and Countess of Wessex. It is a major event in the British social calendar, and press coverage of the attendees and what they are wearing often exceeds coverage of the actual racing. There are three enclosures attended by guests on Royal Ascot week. In 2005, whilst Ascot was closed for redevelopment, the Royal meeting was held at York Racecourse
