The Breeders’ Cup Classic is the most valuable horse race run in the United States each year and considered by many to be the most prestigious horse race run in the world. Raven’s Pass became the first British winner of the race in 2008, the first time the Classic was run on a synthetic pro-ride surface. In 2009 Zenyatta became the first ever mare to win the race and she almost repeated the feat last year. There has been no standout American colt on the dirt this year, which is why another female, Havre De Grace, is considered to have a big chance of being the second female winner of the race.

The Prix De L’Arc De Triomphe, one of the sporting highlights of the year, takes place at Longchamp on Sunday 2nd October. Generally considered as the most prestigious horse race run on the flat in Europe, it has been won by some true greats in the past 10 years including Montjeu, Sinndar, Dalakhani, Zarkava and two years ago the mighty Sea The Stars.

The Ayr Gold Cup, which takes place on the Saturday 17th September, is the most valuable sprint handicap run in Europe. Run over 6 furlongs, it has been dominated in recent years by Dandy Nicholls. Horses that don’t make the cut for this run in the Silver Cup earlier on Saturday and the Bronze Cup on Friday, both races can often provide clues to the best place to be drawn. Below we take a look at the trends for the past 10 years: [b]Age[/b] (Win-Place-Runners) 3yo: 1-2-34 4yo: 4-7-76 5yo: 3-11-64 6yo+: 2-7-42 7yo+: 0-3-47 Horses aged between 4 and 6 have won 9 of the last 10, though that age group has represented almost 70% of the total runners. Horses aged 7 or older have not won the race since 1993 and only 3 of their 47 representatives in the last 10 years have made the ...

The Arlington Million was first run in 1981 and was the first ever race to offer a purse of $1 million as the prize.

The Phoenix Stakes is the first group 1 race for 2yos run in Britain and Ireland this year. It takes place at the Curragh on Sunday 7th August. The race was formerly run at the now-closed Phoenix Park and then at Leopardstown but was moved to its current home following the loss of the straight 6 furlong track at Leopardstown. Aidan O’Brien has dominated the race in recent times, winning 11 of the last 13 renewals.

The King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes, run at Ascot on the 23rd July, is one of the highlights on the British Flat horse racing calendar. Run over a mile and a half, it was historically a good acid test for Derby winners however this year’s Derby winner, Pour Moi, is not entered to run. It still looks a high class renewal and should be a truly memorable event.
