Do people actually pay attention to the horse racing, or is it all about the silly hats?

Ah, the world's premiere event for horse-faced women in giant hats.

Huzzah!

You mean in general or just Royal Ascot? There are regular attendees at RA who will bet on the horses and follow the races. I suspect most of the folks in the Royal enclosure spend most of their time sipping champagne and trying to find their chins. As for the racing generally, there are race meetings most weekends and it is very popular. My grandmother was a huge fan of the horses, she would buy the Racing Post, study the form religiously, watch on TV every day and had her bookie on speed dial.

Lots of people bet (or make their husband bet) the ponies on the big days like this and Kentucky Derby like the people who only go to casinos on a Vegas getaway.  Which means there's lots of dumb money to win if you're smart.
