National Hennessy Cognac Gold Cup Nov. 27th- 29th

UK hostels

The historic grade three National Hunt Hennessy Cognac Gold Cup will be held from November 27th until the 29th at the Newbury Racecourse in Berkshire, England. Started in 1957, the first horse to win the race was named Mandarin and was owned by Madame Hennessey. Her horse went on to win the second annual race as well, joining only one other in history to have two wins at the Gold Cup.

The Hennessey family provided the first trophy and has been the perpetual sponsor of the race ever since. From the beginning, the Hennessy Cognac Gold Cup has been hugely popular and today, the prize has grown from just £5,272 to £125,000. The 5,331 meter race features horses ranging in age from five and up.

To raise the challenge, twenty one fence jumps are on the track, which often end up being the tie breaker. A favorite of the the gambling man and the highlight of the three day Hennessy Meeting in Berkshire, many opportunities to bet on the race are are available.
