Longines Sagaro Stakes
|Group 3, Ascot 15:10
1m 7f 209y, Class 1
|Wednesday 1st May 2019|
Ascot Racecourse’s first meeting of the Flat season, formerly Sagaro Stakes Raceday, will be renamed Royal Ascot Trials Day with a focus on some of the key prep races for horses ahead of the premier Flat meeting of the season.
Held on Wednesday 1st May this year, the seven-race card will have an increased focus ahead of Royal Ascot with four specific trials on the card.
The Group 3 Longines Sagaro Stakes will remain under the same name but will be a designated Gold Cup Trial as well as continuing to be part of the Weatherbys Hamilton Stayers’ Million. This important early season contest has been won by Estimate and Colour Vision in recent years who both went on to Gold Cup success while Mizzou and Torcedor were both placed in the Gold Cup after winning the Sagaro Stakes. Longines will be sponsoring the race once again in 2019.
