Royal Ascot Gold Cup

The Gold Cup is Group 1 race that is normally held on the third day of the Royal Ascot meeting, unofficially known as Ladies’ Day. It is for horses that specialize in running long distances, which makes sense considering the race is 2 miles, 3 furlongs and 210 yards long. The race is the first leg of the Stayer’s Triple Crown and is followed by the Goodwood Cup and the Doncaster Cup. The last Triple Crown winner was Double Trigger in 1995.

The most successful horse in the Gold Cup was Yeats who won the race in 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009. The leading jockey was Lester Piggott who won the race 11 times. The leading trainer is Aidan O’Brien who has won the race seven times. The leading owner is Sue Magnier who has won the race seven times.

The winner of the Gold Cup in 2018 was Stradivarius for trainer John Gosden. The horse was ridden by Frankie Dettori.
