Hennessy to raise a glass to 60 Years of the Hennessy Gold Cup

PUBLISHED: 11:43 02 November 2016 | UPDATED: 12:39 02 November 2016


Longest standing commercial sports sponsorship in the world celebrates 60 years at Newbury - 26 November


This November will see the return of the legendary Hennessy Gold Cup; one of the most anticipated events in the British jump racing calendar and highlight of the two-day Winter Festival at Newbury (25 & 26 November). This year’s race is particularly significant as Hennessy celebrates its 60th year as headline sponsor to this extraordinary winter race day.

Each year, race goers and VIPs alike join Maurice Hennessy, 8th generation of the Hennessy family, for the running of the Hennessy Gold Cup.

Last year’s coveted Hennessy Gold Cup trophy was presented to Alan King, trainer of the winning horse Smad Place, ridden by Wayne Hutchinson and owned by Mrs Peter Andrews. Prolific previous winning horses of the prestigious trophy include Mandarin, Denman, Trabolgan, Bobs Worth, Carruthers and Many Clouds.

Hennessy has partnered with British fashion brand Beulah London to create a limited edition commemorative winter season accessory for race day: a stylish and versatile silk scarf wearable for men and women in Beulah London’s signature blue and Hennessy’s horse print. The silk fabric has been hand block printed with a design which includes the number 60 and a six-line pattern, symbolising the six decades of the Hennessy Gold Cup.
