Top 10 racehorses with drink-related names

As excitement builds for the 55th Hennessy Gold Cup at Newbury this Saturday, 26 November, it’s a great opportunity to celebrate the strong links between the drinks industry and jump racing.

In terms of high profile sponsorships, Hennessy is joined by Glenfarclas whisky, which currently sponsors the Cross Country series, while the Grand National has enjoyed the patronage of both Martell Cognac and now John Smith’s beer.

On top of these sponsorship associations, many horses past and present have been given drink-related names.

Here are some of the most famous, several of whom are running at this week’s Newbury meeting.

If you’re looking to have a casual punt, keep an eye out for some of these names.
