Coral Sprint Trophy Betting

The Coral Sprint Trophy is a well-regarded sprint handicap run at the end of the Flat season at York, and with plenty of interest there is sure to be demand for some exclusive bookmaker offers to spend on the horse racing, as well as money back specials on placepots, quadpots and Scoop 6 betting for horse racing punters and fans alike.

It maybe doesn't get the attention as other big sprint handicaps such as the Wokingham at Royal Ascot or the Stewards Cup at Goodwood, but this is more to do when the race falls, rather the quality of the runners.

Unfortunately for the sponsors the race is part of a very busy day of racing in the UK, which includes Newmarket's second biggest race day of the season and other big races at York.

Despite this, the hugely popular meeting at York produces their biggest and most passionate crowd of the season and is known as the final major meeting at the brilliant track of the season.

On the Saturday of the meeting, where the Coral Sprint Trophy is run along with the Listed Rockingham Stakes, the crowds turn out in their numbers and are treated to some magnificent racing.

The race itself was given a much needed financial boost of 50,000 in 2011, which brought it alongside with the other major six furlongs sprints of the season.

This has enabled the racecourse to attract a high calibre of horse to the race and trainers now use the race as a potential final swansong of a top-class horse's season.

Usually the winner of the race is a late-maturing young horse, who has been specifically saved for this time of year.

It has produced some very classy winners in the past including the superb Nunthorpe winning and legendary The Tatling and the ever-so-game Borderlescott.

The 2012 renewal was on par with previous runnings, in terms of quality, and produced a very exciting winner in the form of three-year-old Sirius Prospect, who won in fine style despite carrying a monster weight and rated 101.
