History Of The Chase

Doncaster welcomes each year in with the amazing Sky Bet Chase (otherwise known as The Great Yorkshire Chase). Run during January, this listed National Hunt race takes place over 3 miles. Ziga Boy has been the most successful horse with 2 wins, Tom Moloney the most successful jockey with 3 wins and Fred Rimell the most successful trainer with 4 wins.

Making Headlines

The Chase made the news in 2018 when a greyhound decided to join in with the race. The surprising addition had slipped its lead and away from its owners during a walk across the grounds and decided to be part of the exciting end stage of the race. It even managed to keep pace with some of the horses, and got the attention of jockey Mitchell Bastyan.
