Royal Ascots record Racing Purse
The long-time jewel in the crown of British horse racing - Royal Ascot, will this year in 2018 be worth a total of £7 Million in prize money with a minimum of £90,000 on offer for every race during the Royal meeting.
In a statement from the Ascot Racecourse Chief Executive, Guy Henderson said: "In order to continue to attract the best horses to run at Ascot, and with the Royal Meeting a shop window for international investment in British racing, it is important that we offer as competitive prize money as we can, particularly at the high end,"
"It is therefore pleasing to be able to announce, through balanced progress, that Ascot is able to offer record prize money alongside our other investments and continuing to reduce our Grandstand debt on schedule," Henderson added, referring to a £200 million redevelopment which completed in 2006.
Royal Ascot is without a doubt one of the world's premier racing establishments and with this 2018 rise in racing revenue, we're sure to also see a rise in the quality of horse entry acceptances and as a result, expect to witness some fantastic competitive racing.
