The third and biggest day of the world-famous race meeting is Ladies Day. High-stakes style is the order of the day and big hitters from the international fashion industry will be out in force, bringing glitz and glamour to one of ‘the’ fixtures on the social calendar.
On the track the week’s racing highlight, the Ascot Gold Cup, is run. Today’s runners will strive to match the record-breaking perfomances of Yeats. A statue in the parade ring commemorates the achievement of this equine legend in winning the long distance race four times in a row.
Clare Balding will host the coverage from Ascot. She’ll be joined by Willie Carson, Mick Fitzgerald, Rishi Persad, Suzi Perry, Ian Bartlett and John Parrott. Race commentary will come from Jim McGrath.
Coverage continues on BBC Two and BBC HD from 3.20pm – 5.15pm.
