Wagga Wagga Gold Cup News
The Listed Wagga Wagga Gold Cup is a 2000m open handicap race run each year in early May to much anticipation. The Wagga Cup usually attracts a decent field of local and interstate horses as well as the occasional raider from New Zealand. Canberra horses are often well-represented in the Wagga Wagga Gold Cup results.
Claimed by some to be the second oldest horse race in Australia, the Wagga Cup has developed a reputation as a major event in the Riverina region. Although it is usually run during the week, the Wagga Cup has no difficulties attracting viewers or listeners from far and wide. The Wagga Cup attracts a lot of punting attention both locally and from the rest of Australia.
The Wagga Wagga Gold Cup is unique amongst very limited company as a highly popular listed race. Although the purse is not considerable at $160,000, the hype surrounding Wagga Wagga Cup race day has considerably outgrown that of the average Listed race.
Horses out of the Wagga Wagga Gold Cup field may be tempted to race on over the winter heading up to Queensland for a race like the Group 1 Doomben Cup (2000m).
The 2020 Wagga Wagga Gold Cup ran on Friday May 1st, 2020 and was won by the favourite House Of Cartier.
