Tattersall’s Cup

  • 2nd: #9 Young Werther
  • 3rd: #7 Knight's Choice



The Tattersall’s Cup is traditionally held at Eagle Farm Racecourse on Tattersall’s Tiara Day in late June, the final major day of racing in the Queensland Winter Racing Carnival.

Previously contested over 2200m, the Group 3 Tattersall’s Cup briefly ran as a genuine staying test run over a gruelling 3000m in 2019 before being shortened to a mile and a half (2400m) in 2020.

The event presents trainers with a great opportunity to give their stayers a final test before the winter break. Paying $200,000 in prize money, the Tattersall’s Cup was previously run under quality handicap conditions before changing to set weights plus penalties in 2020.

The Tattersall’s Cup attracts horses still in form after their winter campaign, looking for a final black type victory. Open to horses three years old and above, the Tattersall’s Cup field may feature graduates that contested the Group 2 Brisbane Cup (3200m) earlier in the month or three-year-olds backing up out of the Group 1 Queensland Derby (2400m).

In 2019 Vow And Declare improved on a second in the Queensland Derby before winning the Tattersall’s Cup (over 3000m). He would go on to have an outstanding spring campaign running second in the Group 1 Caulfield Cup and winning the iconic Group 1 Melbourne Cup.

Vow And Declare would return to win his second Tattersall’s Cup in 2024.

The Tattersall’s Cup traditionally shares the race card with the Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara (1400m), a $700,000 weight-for-age sprint contest that attracts some of the more talented fillies and mares around.

Note: Due to COVID-19 the 2020 Tattersall’s Cup ran on the same card as the Group 2 The Roses and the Group 2 Dane Ripper Stakes.

In 2021 the Tattersall’s Cup winner Incentivise won by an historic 12 lengths. He would go on to win his next three races in Melbourne completing the Group 1 Makybe Diva – Turnbull Stakes – Caulfield Cup treble before a second to Verry Elleegant in that year’s Group 1 Melbourne Cup (3200m).

The Group 2 $1.2 million The Q22 (2200m) held on Stradbroke Day is now the key final lead-up into the Tattersall’s Cup field. London Banker (7th in 2022) and Luncies (4th in 2023) are the last The Q22 graduates to continue on and win the Tattersall’s Cup.

The 2022 Tattersall’s Cup form was franked with the third-placed Esti Feny returning the following May to win the Gosford Gold Cup.

The Tattersall’s Cup runner from 2023, Spirit Ridge, went on to run top three in a host of subsequent events including a second in Sydney’s Group 1 The Metropolitan (2400m) that spring.

The Tattersall’s Cup 2024 ran on Saturday June 29, 2024 as part of Brisbane’s Tattersall’s Tiara Day card and was won by the Danny O’Brien-trained 2019 Vow And Declare ($7.50) who won the race in a new track record time of 2 minutes 27.21 seconds.

  • To Win: #1 Vow And Declare ($6.50 at time of publish) – BET NOW

Tempting value with Vow And Declare who is a contender to watch in the Tatt’s Cup. The veteran gelding, our 2019 Melbourne Cup champion who also won this event that year, keeps proving he’s got the racehorse spirit. His last start fourth in The Q22 over 2200m was impressive, and the step up to 2400m looks ideal. He’s weighted with less than 59kg for the first time since his Melbourne Cup run last year, making him a threat in this field. Don’t count out the old boy – he could cause a boilover!

Tattersall’s Cup History

The Tattersall’s Cup was inaugurated in 1924 as a Principal Race, and granted Group 3 status in 1980. Serelot won the first edition of the race, also taking out the Queensland Derby in the same year.

Since its inception, the Tattersall’s Cup has changed race distance a staggering 27 times. The different distances all revolve around 2200m, with the race remaining at that distance since 2006. It has been located at Eagle Farm Racecourse since 1946. For the first time in 2019, the Tattersall’s Cup distance was increased to 3000m.

In 2020 the Tattersall’s Cup ran as a set weights plus penalties event over 2400m due to the impact of COVID-19 on the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival. Trainer Chris Waller dominated the race with Brimham Rocks leading an all-Waller first four.

The 2021 Tattersall’s Cup results saw Incentivise win by a runaway 12 lengths.

Notable winners of the Tattersall’s Cup include Cool Gent (1957 & 1958), Wiseland (1943), Spear Prince (1936), Ice Chariot (2007), and subsequent Melbourne Cup champion Vow And Declare (2019 & 2024).

Vow And Declare won his second Tatt’s Cup in 2024 setting a track record of 2 minutes 27.21 seconds.
