The Ipswich Cup is one of the most popularly attended races in south-east Queensland.

Hosted the weekend following the conclusion of the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival, Ipswich Cup Day draws massive crowds from around the country far in excess of its Listed status. Raced over 2150 metres, the Ipswich Cup presents a staying challenge but leaves enough in the tank for a thunderous finish across the relatively short 300m straight at Ipswich Racecourse.

The Ipswich Cup is open to horses three years old and above and is run under quality handicap conditions. The Ipswich Cup field attracts mainly local Queensland-trained stayers chasing a share in the $250,000 in prize money as of 2024.

The Ipswich Cup takes place as part of the extended Queensland Winter Racing Carnival program. Horses that run at days during the Brisbane Winter Carnival often make the short journey to Ipswich to extend their campaign and aim for another black-type victory.

The Ipswich Cup also provides a minor step to the Tattersall’s Tiara Day the following weekend. Ipswich Cup Day is also one of the few major race days before the winter break, so several trainers try and get their horses accepted into one final race before breaking for the winter.

The 2022 Ipswich Cup form was franked with the third place-getter Street Dancer returning the following January to finish runner-up at the Gold Coast in the $1 million Magic Millions Trophy (2200m) in 2023.

The 2024 Ipswich Cup runs on Saturday June 22, 2024 at Ipswich Racecourse.

Ipswich Cup History

The Ipswich Cup has a long and colourful history. One of the most popularly attended races in Queensland, and by far the most popular race in the city of Ipswich, the Ipswich Cup has for a long time held a reputation far in excess of its listed status. The Ipswich Cup is the main attraction on Ipswich Cup Day, which draws thousands of people from all around the country. A large proportion of Ipswich also turns out for the Ipswich Cup, making it a full day of racing, fashion, and partying into the night.

There was no Ipswich Cup held in 2020 due to COVID-19 and its impact on the winter carnival in Queensland.

Even though there are plenty of lead-up races in which to analyse form, Ipswich Cup results can still be quite surprising. The Ipswich Cup results since 2000 are listed below.
