Balaklava Cup

The 2015 Balaklava Cup is a Listed mile event held at Balaklava Racecourse.

The 2015 Balaklava Cup is one of the biggest races held at Balaklava. Raced over 1600 metres, the Balaklava Cup is well attended by quality horses and racegoers alike and is usually held in late August or early September.

Held under Quality Handicap conditions and open to entrants of all sexes and ages, the Balaklava Cup attracts a fairly decent field each year. With $80,000 total prize money, it’s fairly lucrative for a listed race. The Balaklava Cup has a reputation well in excess of its listed status. It is the largest country racing meet in South Australia and draws some of the best country horses from both South Australia and Victoria, as well as some decent metropolitan runners.

Horses generally target the Balaklava Cup following good shows in black-type events at more prestigious racecourses. Those horses that excel in the Balaklava Cup are likely to continue on to similar events such as the Murray Bridge Gold Cup.

The 2015 Balaklava Cup will be run on Wednesday September 2nd.

2015 Balaklava Cup Field

The 2015 Balaklava Cup field always contains a couple of standout performers.

Balaklava Cup History

Balaklava Racecourse was established in 1903 and they’ve been racing there in some form or another ever since. Balaklava Cup Day is usually attended by a very healthy crowd of around 12,000 people, making it one of the most successful regional meets in the country.

Over the years, the Balaklava Cup has gradually evolved. The decision was made at one point to reduce the event from a staying race (which is usually the case for Cup events) to a mile event in order to allow more horses to target it as part of their spring campaigns.

Notable Balaklava Cup winners include My Golden Bracelet (2000), Roman Arch (2003) and Gris Caro (2013). Balaklava Cup results since 2000 are listed below.
