April 26 2019 Horse Racing The Bet365 Gold Cup (formerly known as the Whitbread Gold Cup) is a Grade 3 Handicap Chase run over 3 miles and 5 furlongs at Sandown Park at the tail end of April each year.
Bet365 Gold Cup. The Bet365 Gold Cup is a Grade 3 National Hunt steeplechase in Great Britain which is open to horses aged five years or older. It is run at Sandown Park over a distance of about 3 miles and 5 furlongs (3 miles, 4 furlongs and 166 yards, or 5,784 metres), and during its running there are twenty-four fences to be jumped.
In 2008, Bet365 has been the Gold Cup’s main sponsor. This year’s race will be held on Sunday, April 27, 2019. Back when it was still known as the Whitbread, this race was won by some of the great jump horses we’ve ever seen. Arkle, the Irish gelding whose remains are displayed at Tully’s Irish National Stud, won the Gold Cup in 1965.
