Tattersall’s Cup News
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.
The Tattersall’s Cup 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 2019 ran on Saturday June 22, 2019 and was won by gun three-year-old Vow And Declare.

2019 Tattersall’s Cup Field
The Tattersall’s Cup field attracts a smart line-up of both local Queensland stayers and interstate visitors usually coming off a Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival campaign. Many gallopers out of the Tattersall’s Cup head to the Sunshine Coast next-up for a shot at the Listed Caloundra Cup (2400m) over the mile and a half the following Saturday.
The official Tattersall’s Cup 2019 Final Field & Barriers will be released the Wednesday of race week and provided for the punters below.
The 2019 Tattersall’s Cup field drew a small but classy line-up of 12 stayers with Big Duke to carry the 60kg topweight. Ipswich Cup runner-up Sampson drew gate seven, while Desleigh Forster’s Provincial Stayers winner from last weekend It Ain’t All Honey has the outside barrier (12).
Update: The Tatt’s Cup 2019 field is down to 11 runners after the scratching of the Chris Waller-trained Exoteric (2).

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