This is the big one! Join us for a party to remember at the social event of the season. The perfect excuse to don your finest glad rags, get together with friends and loved ones, and welcome Christmas in style. Top-class action on the course sees one of the most historical chases in the country with the Ladbrokes Trophy over 3 miles and 2 furlongs.
The Ladbrokes Winter Carnival reaches its climax with an outstanding day of Jump racing featuring the Ladbrokes Trophy won in its previous incarnation, the Hennessy Gold Cup, by racing legends such as Arkle, Mill House, Burrough Hill Lad and more recently Denman.
The event was established in 1957, and it was initially staged at Cheltenham. The winner of the inaugural running, Mandarin, was owned by Peggy Hennessy, a member of the family which founded Hennessy, the race’s sponsoring company. It was transferred to Newbury in 1960, and it was won by Mandarin for a second time in 1961. The race’s second running was won by Taxidermist, ridden by the amateur rider John Lawrence, later Lord Oaksey, who was the breeder and part-owner of the 2011 winner, Carruthers.
G&T Executive provides an executive chauffeur taxi service to the Ladbrokes Trophy Day.
