Tattersall’s Cup

The Tattersall's Cup is a Group 3 race run over 3000m for end-of-winter stayers and takes place in Brisbane at the end of June on Tattersall's Tiara Day. Due to COVID-19 the 2020 race ran a week earlier over 2400m as a set weights plus penalties clash.

2020 Tattersall's Cup Results

  • 1st: #4 Brimham Rocks
  • 2nd: #11 Savacool
  • 3rd: #1 Shraaoh



Note: Due to COVID-19 the 2020 Tattersall’s Cup ran on the same card as the Group 2 The Roses and the Group 2 Dane Ripper Stakes. The event took place over a reduced distance (2400m) and offered $175,000 in prize money. Traditionally run as a quality handicap event, the 2020 edition took place at set weights plus penalties.


The Tattersall’s Cup is traditionally held at Eagle Farm Racecourse on Tattersall’s Tiara Day in late June, the final major day of racing in the Queensland Winter Racing Carnival.

Previously contested over 2200m, the Group 3 Tattersall’s Cup is now a genuine staying test run over a grueling 3000m from 2019 onwards, which is just 200m shorter than the world famous Melbourne Cup race.

The event presents trainers with a great opportunity to give their stayers a final test before the winter break. Paying $200,000 in prize money, the Tattersall’s Cup is run under quality handicap conditions and is open to all horses.

The Tattersall’s Cup attracts horses still in form after their winter campaign, looking for a final black type victory. Open to horses three years old and above, the Tattersall’s Cup field may feature graduates that contested the Group 2 Brisbane Cup (2400m) earlier in the month or three-year-olds backing up out of the Group 1 Queensland Derby (2400m).

In 2019 Vow And Declare improved on a second in the Queensland Derby before winning the Tattersall’s Cup over 3000m. He would go on to have an outstanding spring campaign running second in the Group 1 Caulfield Cup and winning the iconic Group 1 Melbourne Cup.

The Tattersall’s Cup traditionally shares the race card with the Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara (1400m), a $500,000 weight-for-age sprint contest that attracts some of the more talented fillies and mares around.

The Tattersall’s Cup 2020 ran on Saturday June 13, 2020 over 2400m as a set weights plus penalties event due to COVID-19 and was won by the Chris Waller-trained Brimham Rocks.

Tattersall’s Cup History

The Tattersall’s Cup was inaugurated in 1924 as a Principal Race, and granted Group 3 status in 1980. Serelot won the first edition of the race, also taking out the Queensland Derby in the same year.

Since its inception, the Tattersall’s Cup has changed race distance a staggering 27 times. The different distances all revolve around 2200m, with the race remaining at that distance since 2006. It has been located at Eagle Farm Racecourse since 1946. For the first time in 2019, the Tattersall’s Cup distance was increased to 3000m.

In 2020 the Tattersall’s Cup ran as a set weights plus penalties event over 2400m due to the impact of COVID-19 on the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival. Trainer Chris Waller dominated the race with Brimham Rocks leading an all-Waller first four.

Notable winners of the Tattersall’s Cup include Cool Gent (1957, 1958), Wiseland (1943), Spear Prince (1936), Ice Chariot (2007) and subsequent Melbourne Cup champion Vow And Declare (2019). Tattersall’s Cup results since 2000 are listed below.
