Introducing our OFFICIAL

In 2018, we saw the return of the original Gold Cup from 1924, and from this, we decided to create our very own mascot looking just like the original Gold Cup.


We gave our very own Junior Jumpers™ the opportunity to name our new Mascot - and after many entries, 'Boum' was introduced!  

Did you see Boum at The Randox Health Grand National?

It wasn't long until Boum got invited to enter the Mascot race at The Randox Health Grand National on Saturday 6th April 2019. Check out how Boum got on... 

Sir Anthony McCoy's Charity Football Match

Boum was amongst famous football and racing stars on Wednesday 17th April at Cheltenham Football Club, including:

  • Nigel Twiston Davies
  • Richard Johnson
  • Dan Skelton
  • Jonjo O’Neill
  • Sam Twiston-Davies
  • Alain Cawley
  • Wayne Hutchinson


Luckily Boum scored in the penalty shoot out at half-time, impressing everyone including Harry Rednapp!
