Chester Cup Day

Thursday, May 7, 2020 - 11:30

It’s the final day of the prestigious Boodles May Festival, a day in which the highest profile race of season is run.

The Chester Cup, the most valuable race in Chester’s calendar of fixtures and arguably the most exciting, has produced some fantastic battles on the Roodee Turf. In 2019, Making Miracles lived up to his name on SportPesa Chester Cup Day, delivering course specialist Franny Norton and trainer Mark Johnston a first Chester Cup win.

Supported by the Huxley Stakes and a consolation race to the Chester Cup; The Chester Plate, Chester Cup Day will command the largest crowd of the three days and a fantastic rousing atmosphere that will filter through the city.
