Scott Richards sponsoring A Question of Racing

The Coral Haldon Gold Cup has been considered as a stepping-stone to the world’s most prestigious race over this distance, the Betway Queen Mother Champion Chase at The Cheltenham Festival in the following March.

 

This race has acted as a benchmark early on in the career of many iconic racehorses, who have then gone on to make history. The likes of Cue Card and Sabin du Loir have claimed this title and the 2019 Coral Haldon Gold Cup is set to be just as exhilarating with a total of 11 entries.

 

Tuesday 5th November 2019 is set to be no different, with the 11-year-old gelding God’s Own being on cusp of claiming a place in history.
