One of Nottingham’s biggest days of the year, Colwick Cup Day offers a unique mixture of family fun and high-class racing.
With plenty of great activities on offer across the course, there should be something for all ages to enjoy as the action on the track is paired with great entertainment off of it.
The seven-race card is a competitive one, with the feature race being the prestigious Colwick Cup Handicap over 1m 6f. This race provides a stern test of stamina and has been won by some progressive stayers over the years, often acting as a stepping stone to some of the most prestigious distance races in the calendar – including the Together For Racing International Cesarewitch Handicap at Newmarket and the £1 million Ebor Handicap at York.
Cast your eye over the racecard and you’ll likely find some familiar names from the world of Jump racing trying their hand in staying races on the Flat – as the classy hurdler Not So Sleepy showed to good effect when finishing second in the 2019 renewal.
The supporting races are just as competitive and with plenty to keep you occupied in the intervals we look forward to welcoming you for a day of family fun!
