Ascot could play host to the final race of Baaeed’s brief but brilliant career on British Champions Day.

The highest-rated horse in the world will bring the curtain down on his racing ventures in the Champion Stakes if connections opt against taking another step up in trip for the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe at Longchamp.


If Baaeed does take his chance then he can expect to meet an all-star support cast including last year’s winner Sealiway in the 10 furlong contest, especially with a prize pot worth in excess of £1,000,000 up for grabs.
