Diamond Jubilee Coronation Cup to be presented by the Queen

Posted on by Dave Metcalf

Epsom racecourse hosts the first event of the Diamond Jubilee weekend celebrations on Investec Derby Day (Sat, June 2) and bosses today announced that The Queen will be presenting the trophy to the winning connections of the Diamond Jubilee Coronation Cup.

Earlier this year it was announced that the Group 1 contest was being moved from Friday’s Investec Ladies Day to Investec Derby Day and in honour of this year’s Diamond Jubilee, the race was renamed The Diamond Jubilee Coronation Cup (sponsored by Investec).

Her Majesty The Queen attended the Derby four days after her Coronation in 1953.  Sixty years on her personal appreciation and desire to win this iconic race, now in its 233rd year, continues as strongly as ever.
