The Queen Anne Stakes took place today, June 14th, at Ascot Racecourse in Berkshire, England. For those who don’t know, the Queen Anne Stakes is the first race in the Royal Ascot, a five-day horse racing festival held annually in England. One of the races, the Queen Anne Stakes, takes place during the week of the Royal Ascot. The Queen Anne Stakes is a Group 1 flat race. The Queen Anne Stakes is held on turf and is a mile-long race. This year the Queen Anne Stakes was won by Baaeed, the favorite to win. Baaeed coming into the Queen Anne Stakes was undefeated winning other notable races like the Sir Henry Cecil Stakes, Queen Elizabeth II Stakes, and the Thoroughbred Stakes, to name a few. However, Baaeed didn’t come out of the gate charging first. Instead, he sat in third until the last 1/4 of a mile, where he won easily over second-place horse Real Wolrd. Baaeed won by more than three-quarter lengths making both trainer William Haggas and Jockey Jim Crowley happy. Baaeed joins other former Queen Anne Stakes Winners in the books and sets the fourth-highest track record for fastest running time. The record is currently held by Valixir, who won the Queen Anne in 2005. Valixir’s time was 1:36.64. The Royal Ascot will be on NBC Sports at 8:30 am eastern time.
