2024 Stewards Cup Preview

This Stewards Cup first took place in 1840 and was traditionally run on the first day of Glorious Goodwood until 1993 when it was moved to its current Saturday slot for commercial purposes. Open to three-year-olds and upwards over Goodwood's straight-six furlongs, the Stewards Cup field is a sight to behold for sprint handicap enthusiasts with the best part of 25 to 30 runners appearing like the cavalry over the brow after a furlong or so from the starting stalls.

Won by top sprinters down the years like the flying filly Lochsong in 1992 who carried only 8-0, she was one of many who went on to be successful at Group 1 level. The quality of winners has continued in the past ten years with eight of the last nine officially rated between 102 and 111.
