The Lord Mayor’s Cup is a Group 3 race now held at Eagle Farm Racecourse annually in late May or early June on Kingsford Smith Cup Day. Previously run under weight-for-age conditions over a distance of 1600m, the Lord Mayor’s Cup is now a set weights plus penalties event contested over 1800m.

The race now serves as a potential lead-up into the Group 2 Brisbane Cup (3200m) run over two miles a fortnight later on Stradbroke Handicap Day.

The Lord Mayor’s Cup shares a race card with a host of other Group status races including the Group 1 Kingsford Smith Cup (1300m) that is a new lead-up into the Stradbroke Handicap and the Group 2 BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m) for the two-year-olds targeting a Group 1 JJ Atkins (1600m) run over the Eagle Farm mile a fortnight later.

As of 2021, the Group 1 Queensland Derby (2400m) for the season’s top three-year-old stayers also runs on the same card.

The Lord Mayor’s Cup also now offers a ballot exemption to the winner into the $1.2 million Group 2 The Q22 (2200m) run at Eagle Farm on Stradbroke Handicap Day.

In 2022 Kolding ran third in the Lord Mayor’s Cup before a next-up second in that winter’s The Q22 results.

Without A Fight (2023) was the last horse to complete the BRC Lord Mayor’s Cup – The Q22 double.

The 2023 Lord Mayor’s Cup field was further franked with Without A Fight also going on to win that spring’s Melbourne Cup race in November.

The 2024 Lord Mayor’s Cup runs on Saturday June 1, 2024 at Eagle Farm in Brisbane as a lead-up to later events including The Q22.

Cool Gent won the inaugural edition of the Lord Mayor’s Cup in 1956, when it was known as the BATC Labour Day Cup. The race has had several names over the years, all of which are outlined below.

Lord Mayor’s Cup Race Name

Period Name

1987-1989 Carnival Handicap
1990-2002 Labour Day Cup

The race distance has changed multiple times, fluctuating at various lengths between 2000m and 2050m. From 2012-2020 it ran over a mile before being increased to 1800m in 2021. The Lord Mayor’s Cup received Listed status in 1979, 23 years after it began. In 1996 it ran as a Group 3 race, and has remained at that grading since.

Notable Lord Mayor’s Cup winners include Gunsynd (1971), This Manshood (2004), and Solzhenitsyn (2012, 2013).

The 2023 Lord Mayor’s Cup winner Without A Fight went on to claim the iconic Group 1 Melbourne Cup (3200m) at Flemington that spring.
