The Caloundra Cup is one of the most popular non-Group races in Queensland. Hosted the weekend following Tattersall’s Tiara Day, the Caloundra Cup draws crowds from Brisbane and other major metropolitan areas for an exciting day of regional racing at the Sunshine Coast.

Raced over 2400m under quality handicap conditions, with a minimum weight of 54kg, the Caloundra Cup pays a total of $175,000, impressive for its Listed status. It is the feature event of the day, exceeding the prominence of the Group 3 Sunshine Coast Guineas, a mile event run under set weight conditions for three year olds, paying $140,000 prize money. Also held on the day is the Glasshouse Handicap, a $175,000 quality handicap sprint raced across 1400m.

Races on Caloundra Cup Day can be quite a lot of fun for punters, as the form of most runners is well established following the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival. Horses usually contest the Caloundra City Cup as part of the end of their winter campaign, in search of a final black-type run before retiring for the winter break or stepping up to two miles for the Listed Queensland Cup (3200m) a fortnight later.

The 2019 Caloundra Cup runs on Saturday June 29, 2019 at the Sunshine Coast Racecourse.

Caloundra City Cup History

The Caloundra City Cup has a relatively short history in comparison to many other Cup events. The race was first held on the Sunshine Coast Turf Club’s Opening Day on July 25th, 1985, which coincided with the launch of the new racecourse. Initially named the Sunshine Coast Daily Cup, the inaugural edition of the race paid a total of $25,000. The history of the Caloundra City Cup is intertwined with that of Sunshine Coast Racecourse, the first major Queensland track built outside of metropolitan Brisbane in the preceding half century and the first to boast a synthetic surface, the “Cushion Track”.

The race today boasts an impressive following and a well-structured race day to be a feature of Caloundra Cup Day is held on the premier Sunshine Coast racing weekend.
