The prize includes a lunch for two in one of the racecourses venues and a glass of champagne each. The lucky winner will also receive a week’s free subscription to Muddy Matches so that they can arrange a date for the big day.

Royal Artillery Race Day

The day celebrates the relationship between the military horse and racing with its highlight being the feature race, the Royal Artillery Gold Cup, which is one of the oldest and most prestigious races of the jumps racing season, first run at Sandown Park in 1878. The race is unique, being a ‘conditions race’ restricted to horses that are owned or have been leased by those who are serving or have served in the Royal Artillery or one of its recognised units.

The day will start with a special parade, in support of the Royal Artillery Charities, which will take place in Esher High Street and at 12.30pm a 13lb World War One gun will be fired to announce the start of racing. There will be military themed entertainment taking place throughout the day including a performance from the Royal Artillery Band.
