Friday 3rd July 2020 - The Queen Charlotte Stakes
Friday, 03 July 2020

GATES OPEN - 3:25pm | FIRST RACE - 5:40pm | LAST RACE - 8:40pm

Join us for a glorious summer evening of racing featuring the third running of The Queen Charlotte Stakes, Chelmsford City Racecourse’s most prestigious race and second most valuable worth a massive £75,000 in prize money. The seven furlong contest will see a host of challengers eager to pick up a win in this exciting July fixture.

Bask in the sunshine with champagne as racing gets into full swing at Chelmsford City Racecourse and as twilight approaches expect live entertainment deep into the night to start your weekend off in the best possible way.

After a competitive field fought to pick up this Listed race, it was Richard Hannon’s 1000 Guineas winner, Billesdon Brook, who worked his way up the field to take the prize, with the aid of Chelmsford City Cup’s winning jockey, Sean Levey seated. This marked the uptick of the beginning of a sensational campaign for the mare, who would go on to win the Oak Tree Stakes at Goodwood and the Group 1 Sun Chariot Stakes at Newmarket before venturing to California’s Santa Anita Park to compete in the Breeders Cup. The desire to be victorious in 2020 is likely to be intensified, so check out some of our great packages to see this esteemed race ran in style!
