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) and Smokin’ Joey (2015).

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.
