Haldon Gold Cup
The Haldon Gold Cup is a Grade 2 National Hunt chase in Great Britain which is open to horses aged four years or older. It is run at Exeter over a distance of about 2 miles and 1½ furlongs (3,520 metres), and during its running there are twelve fences to be jumped. The race is scheduled to take place each year in late October or early November.
The event is named after Haldon, a ridge of high ground in Devon on which Exeter Racecourse is located. The bookmaker William Hill began to sponsor the race in 1996, and at the same time it became a limited handicap. It is now also known as the William Hill Gold Cup Chase.
