In 2012, the Ascot Racecourse was at the core of the country's celebrations to mark The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

Frankel retired triumphant and unbeaten in 14 runs after the Champion Stakes, in which he won 4 at the Ascot Racecourse and 5 wins in all at the Berkshire course. This includes two on British Champions Day and two at Royal Ascot.
