There are many famous names etched on the trophy including Saint Calvados claiming the title. The six-year-old gelding was championed home by Aiden Coleman in 2018 and has gone on to recently win in 2019 at The Showcase, with jockey Gavin Sheehan.


As this day is all about the novice racehorse, we thought we’d make it a special occasion if you are an inexperienced racegoer with lots of activities and entertainment that will educate and de-mystify the often complex world of horse racing. RacingExplained!
