For the first time since 1945, Newmarket will host the Group 1 Coronation Cup as part of their season-opening four-day QIPCO Guineas Festival, which begins on Thursday 4th June. The 1m4f Coronation Cup, which features as the first leg of the QIPCO British Champions Series, will be sponsored for the first time by Hurworth Bloodstock.
“It is an honour to have the opportunity to sponsor such a prestigious and historic race as the Coronation Cup. Racing has been my life so far, and it is thrilling to play a small part in the resumption of the sport. Moreover, looking at the entries, this year’s renewal of the Coronation Cup has the potential to be a fantastic race.”
