Horse Racing calendar: Key Flat races and fixtures including Royal Ascot 2023

It's all systems go for this year's turf season!

Desert Crown wins the Epsom Derby


Flat fans have had to rely on all-weather action during the cold winter months as the Jumps boys and girls have dominated proceedings – but that is all about to change!

That’s because the turf action is set to break from the stalls, with the racing coming thick and fast as spring turns to summer before the season reaches a climax in the autumn.

All eyes will be on the Classics on either side of the Irish Sea and the big meetings including Royal Ascot, the Ebor Festival and Irish Champions Weekend as well as the occasional overseas foray.

You can run the rule over the latest horse racing odds on the Paddy Power website and Paddy Power app, otherwise the dates for all the major meetings and top races can be found below.
