Doncaster Racecourse
A Brief History Of Racing Post Trophy
The Racing Post Trophy is a Group 1 flat horse race for two-year-old thoroughbred colts and fillies run over a distance of 1 mile at Doncaster Racecourse in late October.

It was first run in 1961 as the Timeform Gold Cup, sponsored by Timeform, and was subsequently known as the Observer Gold Cup (1965-75, sponsored by The Observer) and the Futurity Stakes (1976-88, sponsored by William Hill plc), before taking its present name in 1989 when the Racing Post took sponsorship.
