The 2016 Wyong Gold Cup is an exciting staying event held at Wyong Racecourse in late August or early September. Raced over a testing 2100m, the Wyong Gold Cup provides horses with a great step-up event to the more lucrative and prestigious staying events during the Spring Racing Carnival.

The Wyong Gold Cup is run under Quality Handicap conditions and is open to contenders from all ages and sexes. Paying a decent purse of $125,000, the Wyong Gold Cup is one of the richer listed races.

The Wyong Gold Cup field is usually comprised of horses from Sydney stables, with those who have a successful run going on to compete in both Sydney and Melbourne Spring Racing Carnivals. In 2011, for example, Verminator went from a victory in the Wyong Gold Cup to win the Metropolitan Handicap and compete in the Melbourne Cup.

The Wyong Gold Cup forms part of the Wyong Racing Festival and is the feature race of Wyong Cup Day. There is a second black-type event on the program, the listed Mona Lisa Stakes.

The 2016 Wyong Gold Cup will be run on Friday September 2nd.

Wyong Gold Cup History

The Wyong Gold Cup first ran in 1978 and was taken out by Taksan. For the inaugural edition, the Wyong Cup was raced over a mile (1600 metres). It has run every year since except for 2007, when equine influenza greatly disrupted the New South Wales racing calendar.

The Wyong Gold Cup has developed a reputation for attracting big names, with Chris Waller and Gai Waterhouse regularly nominating horses.

Notable Wyong Gold Cup winners include Lord Hybrow (1989), Daniel’s The Man (2003) and The Verminator (2011). Wyong Cup results since 2000 are listed below.
