The Hong Kong Jockey Club will simulcast for betting six races from the King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes Day meeting at Ascot Racecourse in England on Saturday, 24 July (1st race 8:15pm).
The King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes (G1, 2392m for 3yo+) was established in 1951 to mark the Festival of Britain, a national exhibition celebrated with innovative exhibitions and shows. The race had firmly established itself as the mid-summer showpiece of European racing.
Many of racing’s biggest names have won the race, including the legendary Italian champion Ribot (1956), the immensely talented but ill-fated Shergar (1981), the late Galileo (2001) and the exceptional Enable (2017, 2019, 2020).
Subject to change, the six races on the card are as follows:
S1-1 08:15 pm Pat Eddery Stakes
S1-2 08:50 pm Princess Margaret Stakes
S1-3 09:25 pm 3yo 86-105 Handicap
S1-4 10:00 pm 3yo+ Handicap
S1-5 10:35 pm King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes
S1-6 11:10 pm 3yo+ 66-85 Handicap
Final declarations with barrier draws for the King George Day races will be available on the morning of Friday, 23 July.
