History Of The Trophy

Established back in 1961, the Vertem Futurity Trophy (previously known as the Timeform Gold Cup and the Observer Gold Cup) runs at Doncaster every October over 1 mile. Vertem Asset Management became the sponsor in 2018.

A Group 1 Race

This Group 1 race is the last one of the season and attracts leading trainers and horses who are looking to run in the next Epsom Derby, with five winners of the trophy going on to win the Derby. Trainers return year after year and we have seen one trainer - Henry Cecil - win a staggering 10 times, closely followed by Aidan O’Brien who secured his ninth win in 2018.
