Excitement builds for Royal Ascot

With the dust having settled on the Grand National and the Flat season now getting into full swing, Lovetheraces.com says that excitement is building for Royal Ascot in June.

PRLog - May 9, 2012 - LONDON -- Royal Ascot takes place over five days on the third week in June and the website, part of Racing for Change, the organisation tasked with promoting British horseracing as a fun day out, says that international interest in the fixture is building fast.

Commenting on the fixture, a spokesperson for Lovetheraces.com said: "Ascot is the world's most famous racecourse and Royal Ascot is its premier event. The perfect mix of tradition, style, fashion and amazing horseracing has given Royal Ascot global appeal."

Having been in existence for almost 250 years, Royal Ascot is rightly regarded as one of the most important events in the social and sporting calendar. The heritage, tradition and global attention that the event garners, along with almost £4million in prize money, helps to attract the world's best racehorses to compete.

Each day starts with the Royal Procession, making its way from the Golden Gates along the racecourse and into the Parade Ring. Races take place between 2.30pm and 5.35pm before racegoers are encouraged to sing songs around the bandstand.

"Royal Ascot offers a great day out for everyone," Lovetheraces.com's spokesperson. "As one of the most glamorous horseracing events, it is popular for couples; but there's more than enough to entertain families looking for a kids day out or groups of friends looking for a memorable day."

Fashionistas may want to take note of a new dress code for this year's Royal Ascot. New rules relate to a number of clothing choices, including skirt length, head piece size and types of dress. Meanwhile, men are advised that a tie, rather than cravat, is required.
