The Paddy Power Gold Cup is a Grade 3 National Huntchase in Great Britain which is open to horses aged four years or older. It is run on the Old Course at Cheltenham over a distance of about 2 miles and 4½ furlongs (4,124 metres), and during its running there are fifteen fences to be jumped. It is a handicap race, and it is scheduled to take place each year in mid November.
The event was established in 1960, and it was originally sponsored by Mackeson. It was known as the Mackeson Gold Cup until 1995, but since then it has had various different sponsors and several title changes. It was backed by Murphy's from 1996, and by Thomas Pink from 2000. Its present sponsor, Paddy Power, began supporting the race in 2003.
