The original presentation ceremony of P & O Cup was derived from Gimcrack Stakes.
The owner of the winning horse is traditionally invited to give a speech at the annual Gimcrack Dinner, which is held at the racecourse in December.
The Gimcrack Stakes event is named after GIMCRACK, a successful racehorse in the 18th century.
Gimcrack won twenty-seven times in a career of thirty-six races, but none of his victories were achieved at York.
1846, the Gimcrack Stakes was established and it was originally open to horses of either gender. It was restricted to male horses in 1987.
The race is currently staged on the final day of York’s four-day Ebor Festival meeting.
