The 2020 Royal Ascot meeting was unlike anything we have seen in the history of the sport. The stands were silent, but that didn’t mean that there wasn’t enthralling action throughout. There was no shortage of stories to come out of the meeting.
For example, Hollie Doyle winning her first race at Royal Ascot on board 33/1 shot Scarlet Dragon in the Duke of Edinburgh Stakes.
Meanwhile, Frankie Dettori was once again the star of the show, as he recorded three wins on day five of the meeting.
Furthermore, there were the biggest-priced winners in the history of Royal Ascot, as Nando Parrado won the Coventry Stakes at 150/1.
As is the case every year, there were 36 races held throughout the meeting. Among those were eight Grade 1s, including the Gold Cup, which was the featured race on the Thursday of the meeting. You can find all the winners from the races last year below.

The 2020 Royal Ascot had a little bit of everything. There were a number of tremendous rides from Frankie Dettori throughout the meeting, which would have had the whole of the course on their feet.
Hollie Doyle’s first success at the Royal meeting was just a sign of what was to come, as she went on to finish fourth in the Flat Jockeys’ Championship, which is the highest finish for a woman.
Stradivarius won his third Ascot Gold Cup and could look to match Yeats feat of four in this year’s renewal. Her Majesty, The Queen also had a winner on the week with Tactical in the Windsor Castle Stakes.
The success was her first winner four years and her 24th at the Royal Ascot meeting.
Many of the leading lights will be back in 2021, with Stradivarius set for a huge challenge for the Gold Cup. His main contender could come in the form of Queen’s Vase winner Santiago.
Meanwhile, Palace Pier and Battaash are the leading chances for the Queen Anne Stakes and King’s Stand Stakes respectively. Meanwhile, the Commonwealth Cup could be a fascinating battle between Supremacy, Campanelle and Golden Pal.
