Horse Racing – Qipco British Champions Day.
The QIPCO British Champions Series is the World’s premium Flat Racing.
For the first time this competition was presented in 2011. The most interesting that it includes the thirty five top Flat races in the British horseracing calendar. So it could be named as the best Flat racing on the globe. The 2012 Series will take place over 28 racedays, launching on Saturday 5 May with the QIPCO 2000 Guineas on Newmarket’s Rowley Mile course and climaxing on QIPCO British Champions Day at Ascot on Saturday 20 October.
The Series contains five championship categories: Sprint, Mile, Middle Distance, Long Distance and Fillies and Mares.
Each of them presents seven highest-rated races in each category, including twelve from the world’s top twenty races. All this brings together the best horses, jockeys, and coaches that race for the sport’s most high-status prizes.
Minimum distance of five furlongs (1,000 m), and four races over 6 furlongs (1,200 m), and the finale race on QIPCO British Champions Day. All seven races are open to three-years-and-up aged horses. The Coolmore Nunthorpe Stakes are also opened to two-year-olds.
The Mile (1,600 m) category begins with two races for three-year-olds only, and two races for four-year-olds and older horses. The final three races gather the three-year-olds against their elder opponents. The prize money is a £1million. It is the richest mile race in Europe.
This category consists of races ranging in distance from 1¼ miles (2,000 m) to 1½ miles (2,400 m) such as the Investec Coronation Cup (four-year-olds and up, 1½ miles) and the world well-known Investec Derby (three-year-olds only, 1½ miles) are followed by the Prince of Wales’s Stakes (four-year-olds and up, 1¼ miles). It is the most significant category of all, cause it is full of enormously costly, iconic contests.
After that the age groups spar in the Coral-Eclipse Stakes (1¼ miles), the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes (1½ miles), the Juddmonte International (1¼ miles) and Britain’s richest ten furlong race, the £1.3m QIPCO Champion Stakes (1¼ miles), at Ascot on QIPCO British Champions Day.
Long Distance category stands for “stayers”. It is the stamina-sapping races for horses that can hold a long trip. It includes the Sportingbet Yorkshire Cup over 1¾ miles (2,800 m) and goes to the big one, the Gold Cup at Royal Ascot over a giant 2½ miles (4,000 m). These races are for four-year-olds and up horses. But the three-year-olds horses can take part in the Artemis Goodwood Cup over 2 miles (3,200 m), the Weatherbys Insurance Lonsdale Cup also over 2 miles, and the Stobart Doncaster Cup over 2¼ miles (3,600 m).
The three-year-old horses have their own race with the Ladbrokes St Leger over 1¾ miles (2,900 m). After that it’s all about QIPCO British Champions Day and the QIPCO British Champions Long Distance Cup over 2 miles (3,200 m).
Fillies and Mares:
The best fillies (female horses up to four years) and mares (five years and above) may take part against their physically stronger male counterparts at the high level of racing. But they have their own Group 1 races over a mile and middle distances. Also they can prove their skills against their own sex.
This category starts with three races for three-year-old horses in the QIPCO 1000 Guineas over a mile (1,600 m), the Investec Oaks over 1½ miles (2,400 m) and the Coronation Stakes over a mile. The three-year-olds spar with the older fillies and mares in the four races: the Etihad Airways Falmouth Stakes over a mile, the Markel Insurance Nassau Stakes over 1¼ miles (2,000 m), the Darley Yorkshire Oaks over 1½ miles, and the finale the QIPCO British Champions Fillies and Mares Stakes over 1½ miles.
These Series is carrying out at the country’s ten primary racecourses such like: Ascot, Doncaster, Epsom Downs, Goodwood, Haydock Park, Newbury, Newmarket’s July Course, Newmarket’s Rowley Mile, Sandown Park and York. It covers all British Flat racing’s main festivals: The QIPCO Guineas Festival, The Investec Derby Festival, Royal Ascot, The Piper Heidsieck July Festival, Betfair Weekend, Glorious Goodwood, The Welcome to Yorkshire Ebor Festival and The Ladbrokes St Leger Meeting.
The QIPCO British Champions Day is Britain’s richest race-day with more than £3 million award money.
This competition gives an incredible prospect for the stars of the Flat racing. As they compete on one of the world’s supreme stages.
It is only the second year of this contest, and it can be truly named the peak of the European flat racing season. Once again the end of season of championship races will take ten furlong horses, milers, sprinters, long distance horses and fillies and mares in the QIPCO British Champions Series.
The impressive Frankel, the world’s finest racehorse, continues his unbeaten record-run in the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes. Also were brilliant victories for Cirrus Des Aigles, Fame And Glory, Deacon Blues and Dancing Rain. It was a dramatic show on the inaugural QIPCO British Champions Series. Many who were there at Ascot on 15 October 2011 called it as the best race-day ever.
This year guarantees to be even better, as Frankel returns to marvellous form in his career in the QIPCO Champion Stakes and will struggle against defending champion, Cirrus des Aigles. Other highlights looks to be very interesting as they includes brilliant leaders.
