The race was first run in 1958 and has had winning jockeys from Lester Piggott, through Willie Carson to Frankie Dettori.

The 2015 Al Shaqab Lockinge saw Night of Thunder claim victory, with subsequent Royal Ascot winner Time Test and Hungerford Stakes winner Adaay also successful on one of the greatest days of Flat racing ever staged at Newbury.

As well as providing fantastic racing action, Al Shaqab Lockinge Day is one of the social highlights of the British summer. There’s plenty of off-the-track activity, including live music after racing and the chance to win a holiday to Qatar.
