The Vertem Futurity Trophy

Sat 27 Oct

Attracting some of the UK’s leading trainers and horses, The Vertem Futurity Trophy is the last Group 1 race of the season and attracts the best two years olds in the country, including several horses aimed at next years Epsom Derby. Established in 1961, five winners have subsequently achieved victory in the following year’s Epsom Derby. The first was Reference Point (1986-87) and the most recent was Camelot (2011-12).

Perhaps one of the most exciting Group 1 races is recent history, the 2017 race saw Saxon Warrior beat Roaring Lion to secure a record 26 Group 1 wins for trainer Aidan O'Brien .

In addition to world-class racing, former BDO world champion Andy "the Viking" Fordham will be joining us to take on the Doncaster racegoers in a 9 dart challenge!
