The 2015 Champions & Chater Cup is a Group 1 race over 2,400m held on May 31st 2015 for horses aged three years or older. It was first run in 1870 as "The Champion Stakes" but would become known as "The Chater Cup" in honour of Hong Kong businessman and racehorse owner, Sir Paul Chater before being renamed to its current name in 1955. It is the third leg of the Triple Crown – the other two are the Stewards’ Cup and the Hong Kong Gold Cup. Each race of the Triple Crown carries prize money of HK$10 million. A special bonus of HK$10 million will be paid to the owner of a horse winning all three legs of the series. River Verdon is the only horse to have achieved this feat, in the 1993/94 season.
