World’s richest horse racing owners – including the Queen and Sheikh Mohammed – set to battle it out at Royal Ascot


MONEY talks at Royal Ascot and in a normal year you could expect to see some high-profile owners strut their stuff.

This year things might be a bit different with the attendance capped at 12,000, but the big guns will still be out to play.

The Queen – 350 million

A Royal Meeting is nothing without the Queen but the traditional Royal procession could again be missing this year.

In normal times each day would start with the procession of carriages, with the Queen leading in other guests, usually high-profile owners and other Royals.

But it’s the action on the track the Queen is there for and she’ll be represented by a number of horses again next week, including Tactical for trainer Andrew Balding.

She has had a staggering 71 winners at the meeting. The most famous of those might be Estimate’s Gold Cup win in 2013, with the memorable scenes being screened around the globe.


Sheikh Mohammed – 10 billion

They don’t come much richer than the Dubai ruler and his famous Godolphin colours are a regular on the biggest and best racecourses around the world.

Just this weekend he won the Derby with Adayar and the Belmont Stakes with Essential Quality for a cool £2 million.

This year at Ascot, the likes of Highland Avenue in the St James’s Palace Stakes will lead the ‘boys in blue’ charge.

It’s unlikely the Sheikh will visit Ascot this year, but luckily for him he can enjoy one of his properties that make up his £500 million empire on these shores.
