Murray Bridge Cup News


The 2015 Murray Bridge Cup is a Listed mile event held at Murray Bridge Racecourse during the Spring Racing Carnival.

Raced over 1600m, the Murray Bridge Cup is not as long in distance as other cup events. However, it still provides compelling entertainment and excellent punting opportunities.

An open quality handicap, the Murray Bridge Cup welcomes all comers for an attempt at its $80,000 prize. It is the headline event on a day that carries no other black-type races. The Murray Bridge Cup is often targeted by horses as part of an ongoing spring campaign.

The Murray Bridge Gold Cup sees a mixture of country horses and city horses go head to head. Because it’s only an hour east of Adelaide, the journey isn’t particularly arduous for horses form major Adelaide stables.

While horses contesting the Murray Bridge Cup come from a broad assortment of preparations, most tend to target slightly longer distance events following a run in the Cup. One of the preferred targets is the Kyneton Cup (2000m).

The 2015 Murray Bridge Cup will be run on Wednesday, October 14th.

Murray Bridge Cup History

The Murray Bridge Cup dates back to the very early 1900s, with the Murray Bridge Turf Club having been formed in 1899.

Throughout its life, the Murray Bridge Cup has been a mainstay of country racing in the region, with a number of the best local horses targeting it each year.

The Murray Bridge Gold Cup is now held at Gifford Hill, the multimillion dollar racing precinct recently built in the town.

Notable Murray Bridge Cup winners include King’s Arch (2003), Moment In Time (2009) and Eclair Surprise (2012). Interestingly (or frustratingly, depending on the way you look at it), Sandhill Prince came second three years in a row (2009-11).
