Chatham, United Kingdom, August 17, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- The world famous event attracts the best horses, jockeys and trainers on the planet and the award winning grandstands and impeccable course provide the perfect backdrop for the summer’s most sizzling race meeting.
First run in 1843, the Betfred Ebor handicap is the focus of four days of sensational racing and there will be a number of superstars looking to add their names to the roll of honour of one of the most enthralling handicaps of the season.
Away from the Ebor handicap, the Juddmonte International sees the best middle-distance horses in Europe clash over 1m2f and the likes of Sea The Stars and Authorized have all won the Group One event in recent years. This year the mighty Frankel looks set to step up in trip for the first time in the contest and racegoers will be desperate to see the world’s best racehorse in action.
Sir Henry Cecil’s colt has blown away his rivals in all his runs over one mile and the unbeaten son of Galileo will be the star attraction at this year’s meeting. With St Nicholas Abbey possibly set to take on the highest rated horse on the planet, we could be set for an enthralling race and the world will be expected a thriller at York.
The Nunthorpe Stakes remains one of the highlights of Ebor Festival week and the best sprinters in the business will go to war for another renewal of the pulsating race. Bated Breath currently heads the betting for the Group One showpiece and trainer Roger Charlton will be hoping that his stable star gets the sort of decent ground that will allow him to run up to his best.
There is plenty to look forward to and the meeting provides the perfect cocktail of fashion in the stands and excitement on the course.
