SHRP gates will open early at 8:00AM each day with the first race being at 8:30. There will be free Ascot Programs each day. On Tuesday through Friday, there will be free doughnuts (while they last) and coffee. On Saturday there will be our normal $3 Sausage and Eggs or $7 Steak and Eggs Breakfast with extended hours from 8AM to Noon. Both are served with hash brown potatoes and coffee.

 

Large fields in almost all of the races will mean superior wagering value.

 

A record 14 American horses appear likely to race in this year’s Royal Ascot with 10 of them trained by Wesley Ward who has won 7 Royal Ascot races in the last few years.

 

The most well-known of the American contingent of horses include Lady Aurelia (trained by Wesley Ward) and Miss Temple City trained by Graham Motion. Lady Aurelia was an easy winner in The Queen Mary Stakes last year. This year she will be the choice in The King Strand Stakes which is the first race on Tuesday. Lady Aurelia in her last race won the Giants Causeway at Keeneland.

 

Miss Temple City was 4th in the Cambridge Stakes in 2015 and 4th again in the Duke of Cambridge Stakes. She is most likely to run this year in the Queen Anne Stakes on Tuesday.  In her last outing, Miss Temple City won the Matriarch Stakes at Del Mar. Also in the Queen Anne Stakes will be American Patriot (trained by Todd Pletcher) who  last time out won the Maker’s 46 Mile at Keeneland.
