  • 1st: #2 Bergerac
  • 2nd: #1 Sampson
  • 3rd: #7 Fighting Teo



The Ipswich Cup is one of the most popularly attended races in south-east Queensland. Hosted the weekend following the conclusion of the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival, Ipswich Cup Day draws massive crowds from around the country far in excess of its Listed status. Raced over 2150 metres, the Ipswich Cup presents a staying challenge but leaves enough in the tank for a thunderous finish across the relatively short 300m straight at Ipswich Racecourse.

The Ipswich Cup is open to horses three years old and above and is run under quality handicap conditions. The Ipswich Cup field attracts mainly local Queensland-trained stayers chasing a share in the $175,000 in prize money.

The Ipswich Cup takes place as part of the extended Queensland Winter Racing Carnival program. Horses that run at days during the Brisbane Winter Carnival often make the short journey to Ipswich to extend their campaign and aim for another black-type victory. The Ipswich Cup also provides a minor step to the Tattersall’s Tiara Day the following weekend. Ipswich Cup Day is also one of the few major race days before the winter break, so several trainers try and get their horses accepted into one final race before breaking for the winter.

The 2019 Ipswich Cup ran on Saturday June 15, 2019 at Ipswich Racecourse and was won by the Toowoomba-trained Bergerac.
