The Foxhunter Chase is the Gold Cup for amateur riders and older horses and after the thrill of watching the Gold Cup run live, this is a great race to bring you back down to earth. This race has a fun element to it, similar to the Cross Country race that is ran at the festival, although it is still a very serious betting heat. The older horses and amateurs will all be trying their best to win the race, and lift their own version of the Gold Cup.
This race is an extreme test (the Foxhunters Chase 2016 is known as a very tough race historically) ran over the same course and distance as the Gold Cup so that definitely tests out the horses jumping and stamina. It is also a test for the amateur riders that take part, this is a huge occasion for them, and a tough race to win. You will recognise many of the horses and jockeys in this race, with many old timers running in this race after having very good careers beforehand.
The betting on this race doesn’t really start until just before the event and the list of qualified horses is available.
