2017 QUEEN ANNE STAKES - RACE HISTORY AND BACKGROUND

First run in 1840, the traditional start to the Ascot Carnival, the Queen Anne Stakes commemorates the monarch who established racing at Ascot. It was in the early summer of 1711, while being driven in a carriage from Windsor Castle, that Queen Anne decided that Ascot Heath would be a good place to establish a race course. A few weeks later, on August 11, 1711, the Royal Meeting was founded.

Recent runnings have been memorable. Frankel kicked off one of the best ever Royal Ascot festivals with an astonishing win in 2012. As Black Caviar arrived in England to show the world some Antipodean class, you feel Frankel’s connections said ‘hang on a minute - we’re kings in this palace’.

Sitting not far off them, he tracked up then two furlongs out the power went on and the margin grew. A top horse like Excelebration was simply left breathless as was the entire crowd when Frankel had a small manner of 11 lengths to spare at the post. EXTRAORDINARY!!

2013 saw a renewal of lesser quality but one not less hyped as it was the first time since the 1930s that a Kentucky Derby winner ran at the Royal Meeting. Animal Kingdom was expected to win after his Dubai World Cup triumph but several factor before and during the race contributed to his downfall.

It was left to Coolmore’s Declaration Of War to burst through the pack late and rebound from his disappointing Lockinge Stakes run when a well backed favourite. He proved he has plenty of talent when held up and unleashing.

2014 saw Toronado show his class. He had been beaten a nose in the St James’s Palace Stakes the previous year but was not going to take any chances. He got back but had good sight of the leaders and roared over the top of an international field to win with some flair.

There was class again on show in 2015 as the French unleashed the grey Solow on Ascot. Much like stable companion Goldikova, he was too good for rivals.

International victories were back in 2016 as Tepin strode across the waters from America to win and continue her unbeaten start to the season. She sat handy and defeated a fair field.
