WATCH: Jim Crowley Coral-Eclipse Exclusive – History, tactics, and what it takes to win

05 Jul 2023
Ahead of this Saturday's renewal of the Group 1 Coral-Eclipse at Sandown, we went trackside with Coral Racing Ambassador, Jim Crowley.

He chatted all about the history and importance of the race, let us know what type of horse you need to win a contest like it, and took a look back at his memorable victory in 2017 on Ulysses for Sir Michael Stoute.

The Coral-Eclipse is Sandown's showpiece event of the year, and it's one of the biggest races in the world – dating back to 1886. Now into its 47th edition sponsored by Coral, it's the longest-running Group 1 race sponsorship in the world, and has seen some of the greatest flat horses ever claim victory over the 1m2f trip.

Giant's Causeway (2000), Sea The Stars (2009) and Enable (2019) are just some of the superstars on the roll of honour for this prestigious contest – who do you think will be added to that list this year?
