The Kalgoorlie Cup is a Listed event held at Kalgoorlie Racecourse during the spring carnival season.


Kalgoorlie Cup News


The Kalgoorlie Cup is a Listed event held in either late September or early October at the Kalgoorlie Racecourse. The Kalgoorlie Cup forms an important part of the minor Western Australia Spring Racing Carnival. More importantly, the Kalgoorlie is a leg in the famous Western Cups trifecta.

Raced under open quality handicap conditions, the Kalgoorlie Cup is now contested over 2200m – having been reduced from 2300m for the first time in 2019 – and offers $150,000 in prize money.

Kalgoorlie Cup Day is held on the same date as the Turnbull Stakes in Melbourne and Sydney’s bumper Epsom Handicap Day program.

Horses commonly target the Kalgoorlie Cup as part of a broader campaign that typically includes both the Coolgardie Cup and the Boulder Cup. These three races are regularly attended by the same horses, all with the hope of achieving the Cups trifecta. In 2011, Kincaple won both the Coolgardie Cup and the Kalgoorlie Cup but was unfortunately pushed into second place in the Boulder Cup by Reverend Lovejoy (whose campaign was otherwise substandard).

Besides the Cups trifecta, horses often continue on from the Kalgoorlie Cup to challenge major races during the Perth Summer Racing Carnival. Some of these future targets include the Group 1 Railway Stakes, Group 1 Kingston Town Classic and Group 2 Perth Cup.

The 2021 Kalgoorlie Cup will be held on Saturday October 2nd, 2021.

Kalgoorlie Cup History

The Kalgoorlie Cup has a long and storied history as one of the premier racing events in the western goldfields. The Kalgoorlie Cup didn’t really have humble beginnings – it was one of the earlier major races held in the region, back when there were three racecourses competing for patrons and racing resources. In those days, Kalgoorlie racing was a days-long endurance event of drinking, gambling and partying. Much like today.

The Kalgoorlie racecourse is recorded as hosting races for the first time in 1896, and the Kalgoorlie Cup is very likely to have been one of the earliest events. For many years the Cups trifecta has been a major target for horses and a major selling point for racing in the region. From 2015 onwards, the Kalgoorlie Cup will shift back a week to a Sunday slot and compete with Belmont Park in Perth for racing attention.

There have been quite a few decent Kalgoorlie Cup winners. Some of the more notable Kalgoorlie Cup winners include Meteor Prince (1959), Seminole Brave (1975), Edge Of Darkness (1990), Lottila Bay (2000) and Kincaple (2011). Kalgoorlie Cup results since 2000 are provided below.
