The day is set to hold 7 races of which the feature race is the Royal Artillery Gold Cup. This is one of Sandown Park’s oldest races having been first run here in 1878. It has been run at the racecourse every season since 1921. The race is 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 recognized Establishments or Units. The jockeys must be amateurs and either past or existing members of any of the Armed Forces, making the race unique in every sense. Last years winner was Guy Disney on Rathlin Rose who were also victorious in 2017.
