Fifth race of Gold Cup Day

The St James' Place Hunters Chase is the fifth race on the final day of the Cheltenham Festival.

The race is another race in the week that is specifically for amateur jockeys and is ran on the new Cheltenham course over 3 miles and 2 furlongs, with 22 fences for the runners to contend with. It is the same course and distance as the Gold Cup, which leads it to being referred to as the Gold Cup for the amateur riders.

The event is open to horses five and older to horses that have either placed at least twice in hunter chases, have won two point to points or won one point to point and placed at least once in a hunter’s chase.

There is prize money of £27,000 on offer to the winner.

History of the St James' Place Hunters Chase

The race was established all the way back in 1904 and has been a running part of the festival ever since. The race received sponsorship for the first time in 1972 from the Sun Alliance and London however that only lasted for two yearsand then it went back to being run without a sponsor.

The art auctioneers Christie's then took over to sponsor the race in 1979 and were long-term supporters of the event, naming the race right the way through till 2012. Following them, in 2013 the race was sponsored by the Country Gentleman's Association, who named the race through until 2015. In 2016, St James’ Palace took over the naming rights and continues to do so.

Recent years

The St. James's Place Hunters' Chase has seen a mix of familiar and new faces in the winner's circle in recent years.
