Royal Hunt Cup


Royal Hunt Cup

The Royal Hunt Cup is a flat horse race in the United Kingdom for three-year-old and above thoroughbreds. It is run over a distance of 1 mile (1,609 m) at Ascot Racecourse during the Royal meeting in June.

First run in 1843, it is a handicap race which is usually contested by a large field, with the maximum number of runners presently set at 30. Prior to to 1930 it was run over a distance of 7 furlongs 166 yards, and between 1930 and 1955 over 7 furlongs 155 yards. The trophy is one of three at Royal Ascot traditionally presented by the Queen, along with the Gold Cup and the Queen's Vase. Unlike other trophies at the meeting which must be returned annually, these three are re-made each year for the winning owners to keep permanently.
