Hobart Cup History

The Hobart Cup has been run since 1875 and is a time-honoured classic staying race in Tasmania. The inaugural Hobart Cup winner was Ella and since then a number of notable horses have won the race including that year’s subsequent Melbourne Cup winner Piping Lane (1972), Brisque (1988), Lord Baracus (2000) and Geegees Blackflash (2012 & 2015).

The race began as a Principal race before gaining Group 3 status in 1980, In 2004 – 2006 it was elevated to a Group 2 event before dropping back to a Group 3 again from 2007 onward. Originally the Hobart Cup was contested over two miles (3200m). It has had a number of different distance changes since then and is now run over 2400m.
