THE DUCHESS OF YORK CUP
The Duchess of York Cup was run for the first time in Mauritius on 1st of June 1927. It was on the occasion of the visit of the Duke and Duchess of York to the island of Mauritius. The winner was Zinovieff who belonged to Mr Adrien Dalais. Nearly a decade later, Mauritians will relate the Duchess of York to ...H.E. Sarah Ferguson, who did come to Mauritius after her wedding in 1986.
