Wagga Cup

The listed Wagga Cup is set to run on Friday, May 5th at Wagga Wagga Racecourse.



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 results, with both 2012 winner Coliseo and 2011 champion Voice Commander racing out of ACT stables.

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 Cup is unique amongst very limited company as a highly popular listed race. Although the purse is not considerable at $150,000, the hype surrounding Wagga Cup race day has considerably outgrown that of the average listed race.

The 2017 Wagga Wagga Gold Cup will be run on Friday May 5th, 2017 at Royal Randwick.
