The Royal Ascot can boast of a long and prosperous history. Queen Elizabeth II attends this event every year along with the other members of the Royal Family. This racing event is hugely popular in the UK with many fans searching Royal Ascot offers for 2020 during the summertime.
1- Brown Jack
Brown Jack is one of the most popular racehorses in the history of British racing. His achievements in the Queen Alexandra Stakes looks unlikely to be repeated by any other horse- he won this race for a record six seasons in a row.
What makes his achievements even more amazing is that he started as a hurdler before he switched to flat racing later in his career.
Brown Jack won the Ascot Stakes in 1928 before he went on an incredible winning run from 1929 to 1934. He also won the Goodwood Cup, Champion Hurdle, Doncaster Cup, Chester Cup, and the Ebor Handicap. His trainers were Aubrey Hastings and Ivor Anthony while the British military officer Sir Harold Wernher was his owner.
2- Black Caviar
Black Caviar made a big name for herself in Australian horse racing. She was named WTRR World Champion Sprinter for four consecutive years while she also remained Australian Racehorse of the Year for three consecutive years.
One of Black Caviar's most memorable victories came at the 2012 Diamond Jubilee Stakes when she gave a stunning display of her talents. She established a commanding lead and claimed the race to her name, though she had to put up with some stiff competition in the end.
The amazing racehorse retired at the peak of her career when she was undefeated in 25 races. She was included in the Australian Hall of Fame in 2013. She can boast of a Timeform Rating of 136.
Estimate is a very famous horse in British racing. She is owned by Queen Elizabeth II while Sir Michael Stoute is her trainer. In 2012, she won the first major honor for her majesty when she claimed the Queen's Vase title as a three-year-old.
Estimate won the Sagaro Stakes as a four-year-old and continued her successes by registering the Gold Cup at Royal Ascot. She became the source of Gold Cup glory for the Royal Family for the very first time.
