Horse-racing: Royal Ascot 2013

From 18 June to 22 June 2013


It's all about fast horses and fancy hats at Royal Ascot, the world's most famous race meeting, and the most glamorous event in London's sporting calendar.

Steeped in tradition, heritage and pageantry, Royal Ascot dates back 300 years and is attended by the Royal Family, including Her Majesty The Queen.

Founded by Queen Anne in 1711, Royal Ascot features a daily horse-drawn procession from Windsor Castle to Ascot Racecourse led by the Royal carriage.

This is also the most extraordinary fashion parade in the world.

Look at these fancy hats:






AND MEN TOO!



SOME REALLY CRAZY HATS!





And this could go on forever...

  3. As a spectator sport, Racehorse makes baseball seem fast. At racetracks, a race is run about every 30 minutes, and when it’s run, most people have to watch a big screen or TV monitor to actually see the action.
