The TS Carlyon Cup is a Group 3 status race for milers run at Caulfield Racecourse on C.F. Orr Stakes Day in February.

CF Orr Stakes Day is the first Group 1 race meeting of the Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival and is headlined by the CF Orr Stakes (1400m). A number of Group 2 and 3 status races also take place on the card including the Group 2 Rubiton Stakes (1100m), Group 2 Autumn Stakes (1400m), the two Blue Diamond Prelude races and the TS Carlyon Cup.

Contested over 1600m the Carlyon Cup is an open set weights plus penalties event offering $200,000 in total prize money. Horses may come into the Carlyon Cup field via an earlier summer – autumn lead-up or contest the event first-up.

Possible later targets for TS Carlyon Cup graduates include the Group 2 Peter Young Stakes (1800m) back at the track a fortnight later before the Group 1 Australian Cup (2000m) at Flemington in early March.

Miss Siska (2020) and Avilius (2019) are the latest runners to complete the TS Carlyon Cup – Peter Young Stakes double. Aviilus also franked the form later in the autumn taking out Sydney’s Group 1 Ranvet Stakes (2000m) – Tancred Stakes (2400m) double at Rosehill. The last Carlyon Cup – Australian Cup double winner meanwhile was Manighar (2012).

The TS Carlyon Cup 2022 ran on Saturday February 12, 2022 at Caulfield Racecourse and was won by Maddie Raymond’s European expat Earlswood ($13).

Carlyon Cup History

The T.S. Carlyon Cup was first run in 1977 when Ngawyni took out the race. A host of top turf stars have since added their names to the TS Carlyon Cup winners list including Hyperno (1978), Super Impose (1989), Veandercross (1993), Northerly (2001), Apache Cat (2007), Smokin’ Joey (2015), Gailo Chop (2018) and Avilius (2019).

The race was contested over 2000m until 1997 and has been run over 1400m, 1600m and 1800m since. It has been kept at a mile (1600m) since 2001. Starting out as a Principal race the Carlyon Cup gained Group 2 status from 1980 – 2002 before being downgraded to a Group 3 race in 2003.
