This popular fixture is a tradition in Sandown Park's Jump racing calendar, with quality racing and entertainment around the racecourse.

The Racing & History

 

Seven races will be taking place on Paddy Power Imperial Cup Day featuring two Grade 3 hurdles and a listed Flat race. The Imperial Cup was first run in 1907 and was considered the most important and prestigious hurdle race of the season right up until the launch of the Champion Hurdle at Cheltenham in 1927. The likes of Olympian, Blowing Wind and Gaspara have all gone on to win at Cheltenham Festival after winning at Sandown Park.

Enjoy a Saturday of sport all in one place! Look out for the Rugby Zone inside the Grandstand - with plenty of seating, live music from acoustic band The Hares and located near the bar, it's ideal as a base for your day. We'll be showing the following games during and after racing:

  • 12.30pm - Football: Liverpool v Bournemouth
  • 4.45pm - Rugby: England v Wales

After the racing, don't miss the chance to hear exclusive news and tips from top trainers & jockeys just days before The Festival at The Cheltenham Preview Panel. Confirmed speakers include 5 Time Champion Trainer Nicky Henderson, Paul Kealy from the Racing Post, Paul Binfield from Paddy Power, and will be hosted by ITV Racing star Matt Chapman.
