The Coronation Cup is a Group 1 race run under Weight For Age conditions for open class horses at Epsom conducted by the Jockey Club.
The Coronation Cup is run over one mile, four furlongs and 6 yards for four year olds and up. It was first run in 1902 and was won by Osboch.
It is the leading race for older horses running at Epsom each season. It is an obvious lead up for horses heading to Royal Ascot.
Run over the same course as the Derby and Oaks and on the same weekend, it is often a small field.
The race was originated to commemorate King Edwards VII’s coronation. During the wars it was conducted at Newbury and Newmarket.
