About the Japan Cup
The Japan Cup is one of the most prestigious horse races in Japan. It is contested on the last Sunday of November in Fuchu, Tokyo over a distance of 2400 meters (about 1 1⁄2 miles) with a purse of ¥476 million (about £3.2 million).
During a relatively short history, the race has established itself as an international contest with winners from Japan, North America, Britain, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, France, Germany and Italy.
The race has produced some of the most memorable finishes seen in Japanese racing. Along with the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe, Melbourne Cup and the Breeders' Cup, the race ranks as one of the great end-of-year events.
