The 2016 Sale Cup is a Listed mile event held at Sale Racecourse in late October.

The 2016 Sale Cup is a Listed mile event held at Sale Racecourse on the last Sunday of every October.

A handicap event open to horses aged three years and older, the Sale Cup pays a respectable $150,000 prize money.

The Sale Cup has developed a reputation over the years as one of the higher quality country cup events. It’s listed status reflects this, as most country cups are not black type.

The Sale Cup differs from a lot of cup events in that it is only 1600m in distance, however this has not had any effect on the quality of the field over the years.

If you’re looking for lead up races to the Sale Cup, keep an eye on both local mile events and metro races.

Following the Sale Cup, horses pursue a number of different courses. Some step up to Group 1 level, such as 2013 Mouro who went on to several group 2 and group 3 races before contesting the Group 1 Doncaster Handicap.

The Sale Cup 2016 will be run on Sunday October 23rd.

2016 Sale Cup Field

The Sale Cup field attracts some fairly classy types each year. Like a lot of bigger country cups, the Sale Cup field tends to be a mixture of handy local types alongside some metro horses who may have had a bit more group experience. In recent years some very classy horses have found themselves in the Sale Cup field, often ending up in the money.

The 2016 Sale Cup field will be published below.

2016 Sale Cup Nominations

The Sale Cup nominations attract horses from far and wide, although the majority tend to hail from local stables and even nearby Melbourne. You can usually get a fairly accurate feel for quality of the final field from the Sale Cup nominations, and whether it will exceed the level it attracted in past years.

The 2016 Sale Cup nominations will be provided below.

Sale Cup History

The Sale Cup is a very old country race and can trace its roots to 1862, when the Sale Turf Club was born. The town of Sale itself was only settled in 1844 and didn’t have a post office until four years later. As such, the Sale Cup is inextricably linked to the history of the town and development of the wider region.

Three-time Melbourne Cup winner Makybe Diva’s fourth start and second win was at Sale in a Class 1 handicap.

The Sale Cup has developed a strong reputation for producing group winners. You can almost rely on the Sale Cup winner going on to take out a group event in the future.

Notable recent Sale Cup winners include Panoramic Lad (2002), Mr Baritone (2007), Sertorius (2012) and Mouro (2013). Sale Cup results since 2000 are listed below.
