Saratoga Cup

Grand Prix

Over the years of this horse show, the main event of the competition has evolved into what we now know as the Saratoga Cup.  Information we have at present says it began in the mid 1970's.  The purse for the event has also changed.  In the earlier days it was know as the "Saratoga Open Jumper Cup" with the purse varying from $1,000 to $5000 over the following decade.  In 1986 it was named the "Saratoga Cup" and the purse varied between $10,000 to $25,000.  In 2015 it was raised to $30,000.

Below is a list of the winning horses and their riders as we know them through our research.  (Please note that we have not been able to find any information about the winners from 1961 to 1975.)  If you find an error, please contact us with any supporting documentation so that we can make the necessary adjustments.  Thank you.
