The Ladbrokes Hobart Cup is a Group 3 race run in mid-February during the annual Tasmanian Summer Racing Carnival.

The event is a staying showdown contested over a mile and a half (2400m) and is run under handicap conditions. The event takes place at Hobart Racecourse and offers $300,000 in prize money as of 2023.

It was previously held a week earlier on the the same card as the Group 3 Bow Mistress Trophy for fillies and mares, but was moved in 2022 and made the sole feature race of Hobart Cup Day.

Gallopers that run in the Hobart Cup field often back-up a fortnight later at Launceston and attempt a Tassie Cup double in the Group 3 Launceston Cup (2400m) over the same distance. Eastender (2019) was the last horse to complete the Hobart Cup – Launceston Cup double in the same season.

In 2022 the Hobart Cup winner Ho Ho Khan went on to run second next-up in that summer’s Launceston Cup results. He further franked the Hobart Cup form heading to Melbourne for a brave fourth behind Duais that March in Flemington’s Group 1 Australian Cup (2000m) at big odds.

The 2023 Hobart Cup form was franked with the third place-getter Spirit Ridge going on to place in a host of subsequent Group races over the year including the Group 3 Launceston Cup (3rd), Group 3 Newcastle Cup (2nd), and the Group 1 The Metropolitan (2nd).

In 2024 dual Launceston Cup winner Aurora’s Symphony (2022, 2023) returned to Tassie and took out the Hobart Cup title for the first time.

The Ladbrokes Hobart Cup 2024 ran on Sunday February 11, 2024 and was won in an impressive performance by Symon Wilde’s dual Launceston Cup winner (2022, 2023) – Aurora’s Symphony ($8.50) – in a new track record time.

Symon Wilde’s champion Aurora’s Symphony ($8.50) proved he’s still got the rhythm, roaring back with a dominant 2.75 victory in the 2024 Ladbrokes Hobart Cup results. The seven-year-old displayed his veteran prowess, charging down the outside to leave his rivals in the dust and secure a commanding victory in a new track record time of 2 minutes 30.21 seconds.

2024 Ladbrokes Hobart Cup Tips

Stay tuned for our insider Ladbrokes Hobart Cup 2024 Tips on the popular Tassie staying showdown this summer.

  • To Win: #4 Ashy Boy ($6.50 at time of publish) – BET NOW

The Hobart Cup field on Sunday is a toss-up, but Glenn Stevenson’s Ashy Boy stands out as a contender. This five-year-old gelding boasts a strong Hobart record with three wins, a second, and a close third from five starts. He’s also shedding weight after carrying 59kg to a runner-up finish in the Summer Cup (2200m), dropping to a more manageable 54kg this time. This weight relief, combined with a favorable draw in gate six and jockey Craig Newitt in the saddle, gives him a golden opportunity to avenge his last defeat and potentially claim victory. Though yet to win beyond 2100m, his Hobart success and lighter load suggest he’s well-positioned to thrive in this open race.

2024 Ladbrokes Hobart Cup Field

The Hobart Cup field attracts some of the summer’s best local stayers as well as a growing number of interstate raiders and is released by Tas Racing on the Wednesday before Hobart Cup Day.

Hobart Cup History

The Hobart Cup has been run since 1875 and is a time-honoured classic staying race in Tasmania. The inaugural Hobart Cup winner was Ella and since then a number of notable horses have won the race including that year’s subsequent Melbourne Cup winner Piping Lane (1972), Brisque (1988), Lord Baracus (2000), and Geegees Blackflash (2012 & 2015).

The race began as a Principal race before gaining Group 3 status in 1980, In 2004 – 2006 it was elevated to a Group 2 event before dropping back to a Group 3 again from 2007 onward. Originally the Hobart Cup was contested over two miles (3200m). It has had a number of different distance changes since then and is now run over 2400m.

In 2024 the Hobart Cup was won by former two-time Launceston Cup champion Aurora’s Symphony who set a new track record of 2 minutes 30.21 seconds.
