One of the most well known horse races is taking place this weekend in England. The 2019 edition of the Ascot Gold Cup is set to take place this weekend at the Ascot Racecourse in Ascot, England.

The race was first contested in 1807 and is open to all horses aged 4 years and older.

This race is geared towards horses that can run for long distances, as the length of the course is just over 4 kilometres. The course is a right-handed turf track.

As this race is open to all horses of a certain age and higher, there are horses that have won the race multiple times.

The most successful horse is Yeats, who won the race four years straight from 2006-2009.

The leading jockey is Lester Piggott, who has won the race a total of 11 times.

The leading trainer is Aidan O'Brien (7 wins), while the leading owner is Sue Magnier (7 wins).

The defending champion is Stradivarius, who won the race with a time of 4:21.08 in 2018.
