Garrard and Ascot have centuries of rich history behind them. Over the past 300 years Ascot has established itself as a national institution, providing the ultimate stage for the best racehorses in the world with the Royal Meeting the centrepiece of the British social calendar.

Garrard’s legacy dates back to 1735, since when they have epitomised exemplary artistry and craftsmanship which has defined British gold and silversmithing.

Jessica Cadzow, director of silver, special commissions and corporate says the partnership is natural fit between two historic British institutions. “We are proud and excited to be working closely with Ascot again and enjoying a presence at the Royal racecourse. It is a perfect alliance with an engaging partner and one we hope to build on for the long term.
