The Agetur Kingmaker Chase Day is one of the highlights of the season at Warwick Racecourse. It acts as a stepping stone towards The Festival™ presented by Magners at Cheltenham and the Randox Health Grand National at Aintree.
There are many famous names etched on the trophy including Long Run, Finian’s Rainbow and Saint Calvados. Father and son team, Willy and Nigel Twiston-Davies, partnered up in 2017 to claim the title with R J Rexton’s Flying Angel.
Saint Calvados, was championed home by Aidan Coleman in 2018 and went on to recently win in 2019 at The Showcase at Cheltenham Racecourse, under jockey Gavin Sheehan.
