The first racing of the decade got underway at the
world-famous Ascot Racecourse on Saturday.
After days of miserable wet and cold weather, the
Matchbook Clarence House Raceday took place under a glorious blue
sky and plenty of sunshine. It may still have been cold, but it was the
perfect start to the 2020 racing season.
The biggest race of the day was the Matchbook
Clarence House Chase with Defi Du Seuil, under Barry J Geraghty,
coming from behind to surge past Un De Sceaux in the closing
stages and claim victory in the Grade 1 race.
Even though Ascot will only next open its gates on 15 February 2020
for the Betfair Ascot Chase Raceday, the venue is much more than
just a racecourse, it also has extensive MICE facilities and when
racing is not on it is
popular for weddings, photo shoots and corporate events. More on
this side of the business to come.
