Ah yes, Ascot.
You know, where fancy British people don suits and throw money at horses in the hope of winning some loot.
Well, that and brawls, because they’re also fond of those.
Last year we brought you scenes of a Battle Royale at Royal Ascot, and it was all rather laughable. That one actually took place at the Royal Ascot’s traditional Ladies Day, just for a touch of extra class.
This year around there have been brawls on two successive weekends, so get stuck into what went down on Saturday:
More shocking scenes at Ascot yesterday after some very unsavoury scenes at Goodwood last week! Something needs to be done to sort this problem out ASAP! pic.twitter.com/lzYWPhfE7K

So much swinging, so little connecting.
There’s also this footage:

Organisers are now being forced to take action to crack down on such hooliganism, according to the Guardian:
Matthew Lincoln, a syndicate owner involved in the Royal Hunt Cup contender Raising Sand, said on social media that the prospect of further violence means he is “seriously considering staying away” from the race meeting, forsaking the chance to see his horse take part.
“Racetracks need to invest in more robust security measures, which may even mean paying for a more significant police presence,” Lincoln told the Guardian. “It might sound drastic but how else are we to deter troublemakers?”
…Ascot staff will meet police and other agencies this week to consider what improvements, if any, need to be made to existing security arrangements. “There are always things to learn after a raceday,” said the track’s Ashley Morton-Hunte, “and we will be reviewing everything and putting appropriate measures in place for Royal Ascot next month.
Seeing as though everyone loves to brawl so much, they should just run a Fight Club-style side event.
Bet a tenner on your favourite horse in race three, then step outside and put a tenner on Jim from Wimbledon to bash in that other bloke.
Jokes, of course – behave, you British degenerates.
