an afternoon steeped in military heritage

 

A wonderful afternoon of military racing with The Grand Military Gold Cup as the feature race. It is a race that is guaranteed to feature some of the country’s finest military amateur jockeys.

The Racing & History

 

The feature race of the day, the Grand Military Gold Cup is a National Hunt Chase open to horses aged five years or older, ran over a distance of 3 miles and ½ furlong. The race is restricted to serving or retired Military Amateur Riders. Ownership of the horses in the race is also limited to serving or ex-serving members of the armed forces. The race was first run in 1841 and the 150th running took place in 2013. Lt Billy Aprahamian galloped to victory on Baden to win the race last year.
