Today could be the last time horses will race at Folestone racecourse if future investment in the course is not secured. Folkestone is the last racecourse in Kent and staff say it would be an end of an era if it were to close.

The owners of the course had hoped to build more than eight hundred homes on the site as a way of generating money for a substantial redevelopment. But these proposals were rejected by Shepway District Council.

Frankel - the wonder horse!

Frankel was at his majestic best as he made it a perfect 14 victories in the Qipco Champion Stakes at Ascot. The world's highest-rated racehorse, trained by Sir Henry Cecil, won his 10th Group One race with a trademark display of pure brilliance - despite being slowly away from the stalls.

Sent off the 2-11 favourite, Khalid Abdullah's wonder colt took up the running from Cirrus Des Aigles over a furlong out under his ever-present jockey Tom Queally and pulled away from the French raider to win cosily by a length and three-quarters.
