The Speedy Services Doncaster Cup is the feature race on the penultimate day of the Festival and is the oldest race still to exist under the Rules of Racing. The two-and-a-quarter mile contest is one of the premier races for ‘long-distance’ horses. This takes place as the final leg of the ‘stayers’ Triple Crown; following on from the Ascot Gold Cup and the Goodwood Cup at Glorious Goodwood.


The Speedy Services Doncaster Cup forms part of the QIPCO British Champions Series.
