Cranbourne Cup News
The Cranbourne Cup is a Listed staying event held at Cranbourne Racecourse during October each spring racing season.
It takes place on the Sunday after Melbourne hosts a four-Group 1 race meeting for Ladbrokes Caulfield Guineas Day.
Held under open handicap conditions over a distance of 2025m, the Cranbourne Cup is an exciting provincial cup event. Prize money of $400,000 makes the Cranbourne Cup one of the richest Listed races in Victoria.
For several reasons, including the prize money and inclusion in several horse’s campaigns, the Cranbourne Cup ranks as a fairly important race in comparison to its status and often attracts smart stayers heading towards tougher spring assignments.
One of the better lead up races to this event is the Group 3 Naturalism Stakes (2000m) at Caulfield, while the Group 3 Bart Cummings (2500m) stands to grow in importance as an additional lead up event.
Those horses which have a decent run in the Cranbourne Cup might go on to contest later major cup events such as the Group 2 Moonee Valley Cup or even the Caulfield Cup or Melbourne Cup. In 2004 the Cranbourne Cup winner On A Jeune went on to finish second in the 2005 Melbourne Cup quinella behind three-time champion Makybe Diva. Four years later the 2008 runner-up Barbaricus franked the Cranbourne Cup form finishing third next race in the Caulfield Cup and second during the Melbourne Cup Carnival in the Mackinnon Stakes.
The 2019 Cranbourne Cup runs on Sunday October 13, 2019.

2019 Cranbourne Cup Field
The Cranbourne Cup field has in the past attracted some top quality stayers. You’ll often see a fairly even mix of metro runners alongside country horses in the Cranbourne Cup field. Runners in the Cranbourne Cup field may come via a lead-up run in something like the Group 3 JRA Cup (2040m) at Moonee Valley a fortnight earlier or even be dropping in grade from the Group 1 Underwood Stakes (1800m) held that same weekend at Caulfield.
The 2019 Cranbourne Cup field will be published here once announced on the Thursday leading-up to Cranbourne Cup Day.
The Cranbourne Cup 2019 Final Field features 13 hopeful stayers led in betting by last-start Rosehill winner Dr Drill dropping notably in weight. The Chris Waller-trained Group 3 JRA Cup winner at The Valley last time out and his stablemate So You Win coming off a second in the Group 3 Naturalism Stakes are among the other leading chances.

Cranbourne Cup History
The Cranbourne Cup was inaugurated in 1898 and has enjoyed an illustrious history since then. A fair number of well-known stayers have gone through the Cranbourne Cup at some point in their careers.
Cranbourne Cup Day has grown into one of the bigger days of racing in the region. It hosts a Myer Fashions in the Field heat, as well as rides and entertainment for kids. Cranbourne Cup Day is touted as a day everyone can enjoy, and that usually seems to be the case.
The Cranbourne Turf Club has grown into one of the busiest in the country, hosting 102 race meetings a year across greyhound, trots and flat racing, and with around 800 horses training out of their facilities.
The race has maintained a strong profile for quality fields, and the Cranbourne Cup results have proved a decent guide to better races in recent years including in 2013 when the runner-up Sertorious went on to win the Sandown Classic. Some of the more notable Cranbourne Cup winners include Celtic Spirit (1988), Big Barron (1992), Brave Chief (2000), On A Jeune (2004), Emerald Jack (2007) and Pakal (2013). The increased prize money and position on the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival has seen some quality stayers featuring in the mix from 2017 onwards including international visitors over the for the Spring Cup races. In 2016 the Cranbourne Cup was postponed due to unsafe, windy conditions track side and ran in March of 2017 over a decreased distance of a mile (1600m).
