QIPCO British Champions Day on October 17 is the climax of a series designed to throw a spotlight on Britain's best Flat races. Denise visited the 10 times Champion trainer Sir Michael Stoute to learn first-hand the winning formula behind getting a horse from the sales ring to the richest raceday in Great Britain.

“As an athlete I understand the attention to detail and care that goes into training and speaking with Sir Michael about the training process really emphasised for me the similarities between my own training and that of a racehorse. There is a whole team working together to ensure the horse as an athlete is in the best possible condition come raceday and the excitement around big days like QIPCO British Champions Day is palpable. It’s these similarities with my own experience that have really drawn me to horse racing.”
