Betfair Chase History

Registered as the Lancashire Chase, the Betfair Chase was first run at Haydock Park in 2005. Originally run over a trip of three miles, an extra furlong-and-a-half was added to the Betfair Chase distance in 2018, making it one of the sternest tests of stamina outside of handicap company.

The Betfair Chase is often the starting point for horses who hope to go on to compete in the Gold Cup at the Cheltenham Festival. 

Paul Nicholls' legendary chaser, Kauto Star won the Betfair Chase four times between 2006 and 2011, while also winning the Gold Cup at Cheltenham twice in that space of time.

Colin Tizzard's star Cue Card became a fan's favourite, thanks mainly to his exploits at Haydock. Cue Card won the Betfair Chase on three occasions, while also claiming the King George crown at Kempton and the Ryanair at Cheltenham.

Silviniaco Conti won the Betfair Chase in 2012 and 2014, making Paul Nicholls the most successful trainer in the race, having saddled the winner six times.

Bristol De Mai became the third horse to win back-to-back Betfair Chases in 2017 and 2018. Nigel Twiston-Davies' grey also recorded the most emphatic Grade One victory ever seen in Britain in the 2017 Betfair Chase, beating Cue Card by a margin of 57-lengths on heavy ground.

Bristol De Mai was thwarted in his attempt to become the only horse to win the Betfair Chase three years in a row in 2019, as Colin Tizzard's Lostintranslation outstayed his rival down the long home-straight at Haydock to win by half-a-length.

Nigel Twiston-Davies' grey didn't have to wait long to gain revenge, as Bristol De Mai defeated Clan Des Obeaux and Lostintranslation to win his third Betfair Chase in 2020.
