The Liverpool City Cup is a Group 3 race run at Royal Randwick Racecourse in late February or early March during the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.

Run over a middle-sprint distance of 1300m the event is an open quality handicap for horses aged three-years-old and above. The Liverpool City Cup offers $160,000 in total prize money and is one of six Group status races held on Chipping Norton Stakes Day.

The meeting’s headline event is the Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes (1600m) followed by the recently upgraded Group 1 Surround Stakes (1400m). Other key races on the card include the Group 2 Skyline Stakes (1200m), Group 2 Sweet Embrace Stakes (1200m), Group 2 Guy Walter Stakes (1400m) and the Liverpool City Cup.

The Liverpool City Cup is often one of the first autumn features contested by horses in the field and good follow-up races include the Group 2 Ajax Stakes (1500m) at Rosehill in March, the Group 1 George Ryder Stakes (1500m) and possibly even the Group 1 Doncaster Mile (1600m) at Randwick in April during The Championships.

The 2019 Liverpool City Cup winner Dreamforce went on to run third in the George Ryder and second in the Doncaster Mile results later that autumn.

Liverpool City Cup History

The Liverpool City Cup has been run since 1970 and the maiden winner of the race was Blue Plume. Since then a host of smart gallopers have won the event including Lord Nelson (1973), Boasting (1989-1990), Danleigh (2008), Terravista (2014), It’s Somewhat (2015) and Dreamforce (2019).

The event started as a 2400m race holding Principal status. From 1979 it has been run as a Group 3 race and there have been a number of distance changes over the years. It has been contested over its current 1300m distance since 2008. The race has taken place at a number of Sydney’s racecourses including Warwick Farm and has gone by other names including the Liverpool Handicap and Warwick Farm Autumn Cup.
