Northam Cup News
The Listed 2021 Northam Cup is a 1600m quality handicap held at Northam Racecourse in Western Australia.
Taking place on a Sunday in late October the day after Melbourne’s Cox Plate Day meeting, the Northam Cup is open only to horses aged three years and older and pays $150,000, very decent for a country cup.
Horses that target the Northam Cup generally do so following non black type events elsewhere in Western Australia. The Group 3 Northerly Stakes at Ascot has been a fairly accurate lead up race in the past. The cup series comprising the Coolgardie Cup, Boulder Cup and Kalgoorlie Cup also acts as a fairly good line for horses to take into the Northam Cup.
Many trainers choose to run their classier horses in the Northam Cup first up as a way of getting them going in time for the Perth Summer Racing Carnival.
Following the Northam Cup, better types will step up to Group 3 for the Asian Beau Stakes, Colonel Reeves Stakes or Lee Steere Stakes. The Group 1 Kingston Town Classic is a potential target for the genuinely talented sorts.
The Northam Cup 2021 was run on Sunday October 24th, 2021 and won by the favourite Kaptain Kaos.

Northam Cup History
Established in 1863, the Northam Race Club has grown into one of Western Australia’s premium country racing clubs. Northam Racecourse is one of the better maintained tracks in the country around Perth, which also contributes to the fairly impressive fields they get there. The long 425 metre straight no doubt also plays a part in drawing strong finishers.
The Northam Cup has grown into a fairly important race for both trainers and punters. As one of the earliest black type races in the season, the Northam Cup attracts a lot of horses that will go on to bigger races later on. As a result, it is watched quite closely.
In 2006 and 2007 the Northam Cup was run over 2300m. Prior to that, it was run over 2200m.
In 2014 there was a dead heat in the Northam Cup results between Rebelson and Son Of Something.
Notable Northam Cup winners include Zero Engagement (2004), Sentenza (2010) and Angel Of Mercy (2013). Northam Cup results since 2000 are listed below.
