"Her Majesty's Plate," with a purse of 100 guineas, was
held on August 11, 1711. Seven horses competed, each carrying a
weight of 12 stones (76 kg). This first race comprised three
separate four-mile (6437 m) heats.

creating the Ascot Authority, an entity that manages the

racing that took place at Ascot was the Royal Meeting, a four-day
event. Since that date, more fixtures have been introduced to the
grounds, notably the Steeplechase and hurdles in 1965.
