World Pool is bigger and better than ever in 2022 with 17 days of top quality action throughout the season in the UK and Ireland, including the QIPCO 2000 Guineas, Cazoo Derby, Royal Ascot, Longines Irish Champions Stakes and QIPCO British Champions Day. There are sure to be a host of brilliant moments along the way and this year we are giving particular recognition to these special equine or human performances.
We are introducing a World Pool “Moment of the Day” which will be awarded at the 16 World Pool days in the lead up to QIPCO British Champions Day, with the moment decided by an extraordinary performance which could include:
At the conclusion of the World Pool season, the 16 winners of “Moment of the Day” will be entered in the overall World Pool “Moment of the Year”, which will be presented on British Champions Day at Ascot. The overall winner will be determined by a combination of scores derived from a public vote and an industry panel, with the winning stable receiving £34,000. The funds will be distributed amongst all the racing staff in the winning yard.
