The Gucci Gold Cup has earned a reputation for excellence by becoming the Saturday highlight of the three stages of the circuit. This 1.55m class boasts US $130,000 in prize money on the three continents and is based on the principle of the “winning round”: there are two rounds, with the second reserved for the ten best riders from the first round. The score from the first round is then discarded and everyone starts from scratch again!
This new benchmark trilogy will continue for the new season in Los Angeles. The last Gold Cup has been won by John Whitaker in 2015 Hong Kong, just ahead of his victory the day after in the Grand Prix with Argento.
A very glamorous evening is in store, as the Gucci Gold Cup is preceded by the “Pro-Am Style & Competition for Charity” class, which draws stars who are connected in one way or another with the horse world.
