Cheltenham Gold Cup trophy stolen

A coveted Cheltenham Gold Cup trophy has been stolen in a £150,000-raid on a millionaire racehorse owner’s country mansion. The trophy – one of the most prestigious in sport – is made of solid gold and worth in excess of £10,000. A new version of the cup is created every year. Two other cups together with ornaments were taken in the burglary at Raymond Mould’s house in Wormington, Gloucestershire. The trophy was won in 1988 by Charter Party, trained by the late David Nicholson and ridden by Richard Dunwoody. The horse was jointly owned by Raymond and Jenny Mould, and their friends Colin and Claire Smith.

As well as the Gold Cup, a Challenge Cup trophy and a Britannia Handicap Cup trophy were also stolen. The total value of the haul was put at £150,000.
