The Waterloo Cup was a hare coursing 3-day event run annually at Great Altcar in Lancashire, from 1836 to 2005, where greyhounds were matched against each other in a tournament format. It was founded by William Philip Molyneux, 2nd Earl of Sefton and so-called as it was inaugurated by Mr William Lynn, proprietor of the Waterloo Hotel in Liverpool’s Ranelagh Street. Mr Lynn, encouraged by the response to the inaugural event, turned his attention the following year to the Turf and organised the first running of the Grand Liverpool Steeplechase, known as the Grand National since 1839. The Waterloo Cup was the premier annual hare coursing event and would attract many thousands of spectators to watch and gamble on the coursing matches. It was often referred to by its supporters as the blue ribbon event of the coursing year. The eventual winner would receive a small trophy and stake money. It is understood that the winner’s trophy was discontinued in 1921, with subsequent winners receiving a medal. £300 - 500
