Eventually, a one third-size (35% of scale) solid sterling silver reproduction of the trophy valued at $40,000 is given annually to the winning owner to keep permanently. It is made each year at a height of 14" with twelve pounds of silver, composed of fourteen large parts and 36 little parts all intricately crafted together. The winning trainer and jockey are given a solid sterling silver cups that looks similar to the trophy valued at $15,000 each standing at a foot tall.
