Racing fans will be treated to the world’s finest thoroughbreds from the iconic Royal Ascot Racecourse on Seven next week, with two Aussie horses likely to meet in the Group 1 Diamond Jubilee.
The Gai Waterhouse-trained Wandjina has settled in at Newmarket stables ahead of the £525,000 Diamond Jubilee Stakes on Saturday June 20.
He is likely to meet fellow Aussie horse Brazen Beau with Chris Waller set to decide whether he will race his top class colt in the same race.
Few sporting venues can match the rich heritage and history of Ascot Racecourse. Over the past 300 years, Ascot has established itself as a national institution; with Royal Ascot becoming the centrepiece of the British social calendar and the ultimate stage for the best racehorses in the world.
Royal Ascot is Britain’s most valuable race meeting, attracting many of the world’s finest racehorses to compete for more than £5.5 milllion in prize money. Its 18 Group races, eight of them in Group One, have made legends of the finest thoroughbreds. Black Caviar, Frankel, Yeats – all Royal Ascot winners turned household names.
