Warrnambool Cup News
The 2015 Warrnambool Cup is one of the most eagerly anticipated races on the Warrnambool calendar. Run over a decent length of 2350m, the Warrnambool Cup may not have cup distance but it makes up for it in intriguing content. Considered one of the premium clashes of country and city horses, the Warrnambool Cup attracts a broad variety of talent.
The Warrnambool Cup is one of Australia’s most renowned country races and it often attracts punting volumes far and above the average listed race. Horses who compete in the Warrnambool Cup often have a decent season behind them already and are looking to wrap up their racing in the southern half of the country before either spelling for winter or heading north for the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival.
Run only a few days before the Group 1 South Australian Derby (2500m), the Warrnambool Cup still attracts considerable attention and decent horses despite its smaller purse and lesser stature as a major race.
The 2015 Warrnambool Cup will be run on Thursday, April 30, 2015 at Warrnambool Racecourse.

Warrnambool Cup History
The Warrnambool Cup had its inaugural run in 1873, when Villiers was first past the post after a gruelling 3200m run. The race distance has changed several times over the years, and today sits at an acceptable staying distance of 2350m, less than the renowned Melbourne Cup distance of 3200m.
Warrnambool Cup Race Distance
The Warrnambool Cup is one of the oldest races in Victoria, with a long history of great fields and great races. One of the best displays of local pedigree, the Warrnambool Cup field has in recent years included a number of interstate horses and even some New Zealand stayers. Unlike a lot of country cup races, the Warrnambool Cup field is usually made up of genuine talent, with a number of notable horses finding their way onto the honour board.
