JOCKEY & TRAINER
This flat handicap race is open to three year olds and above and has featured on the Royal Ascot card since 1843. It is run on a straight course over a distance on 1 mile.
The winning owner can permanently keep the trophy, making it along with the Gold Cup and the Queen’s Vase one of three perpetual races at the Royal Ascot Festival.
Lester Piggott and Charles Wood hold the record for most jockey wins with four each whilst James Jewitt has trained five winning horses (1882, 1883, 1888, 1892 and 1897) making him the most successful trainer.
