Ascot Gold Cup Winners

Britain’s most prestigious race over a marathon trip, dating back to 1807 and part of the Triple Crown for stayers (followed by the Goodwood Cup and Doncaster Cup). Double Trigger was the last horse to win all three races in 1995 for Mark Johnston, showing a typically tenacious attitude for pressure to repel all his rivals from the front. Yeats completed a magnificent four timer between 2006 and 2009 for Aidan O’Brien, and Stradivarius became the latest horse to capture the imagination of the wider public by winning the prize in 2018 and 2019.
