Unbeaten Baaeed Bids Farewell At Ascot Champion Stakes
The famed Ascot Racecourse is the fitting venue for the unbeaten racehorse Baaeed’s final appearance this Saturday.
Baaeed has been installed as a strong odds-on 2/9 favourite for the Qipco Champion Stakes which is scheduled for a 4 pm start. Jim Crowley is the jockey with the honour of taking Baaeed around the track for the last time.

Many horse racing fans will be glued to Saturday’s race action as we find out if the colt can finish his career with an incredible unbeaten record.
If the William Haggas trained Baaeed is to win tomorrow and maintain his flawless record, then he will have undoubtedly cemented his legendary status among the all-time great racehorses.
Ascot Champion Stakes Contenders
So, who are the horses that could spoil Baaeed’s farewell? Let’s take a look at the contenders for Ascot’s 4.00 pm race.
The second favourite in the market is currently Adayar at odds of 9/2. The Charlie Appleby trained horse is in top form after a win at Doncaster last month. This horse also has big race pedigree after having won last year’s Derby and King George.
Adayar is undoubtedly the main danger to Baaeed in this race. If Adayar races to the level we’ve seen from him in the past then Baaeed’s perfect record could be in serious jeopardy.
This Sir Michael Stoute horse won the Brigadier Gerard Stakes at Sandown in May in impressive fashion. Since then however he has failed to impress horse racing followers. The last two outings have seen Bay Bridge being beaten in races that he went into as the SP favourite.
If this colt is to spoil Baaeed’s party then he will need to return to the performance levels we saw from him in May. The class is there but the form has been lacking. You can back Bay Bridge at odds of 10/1 here.
This Irish three-year-old horse is Baaeed trainer William Haggas’s next best shot at Ascot Champion Stakes glory. In My Prospero’s last outing he was the winner of a group 2 race over in France.
It feels like this horse’s best racing is still ahead of him so don’t rule him out of causing a surprise this Saturday. My Prospero is currently listed at odds of 22/1 to spoil the party for Baaeed.
After Saturday’s Champion Stakes race Baaeed is going to retire to stud so let’s enjoy this one last race from a truly historic horse.
