The Queensland Cup is a Listed race that takes place at Brisbane’s Eagle Farm Racecourse in late July at the end of the annual Queensland Winter Racing Carnival.

One of two black-type features on Queensland Cup Day, the race offers a lucrative $200,000 in prize money and attracts the season’s genuine stayers as it takes place over the traditional cup distance of two miles (3200m) – the same as the iconic Melbourne Cup in the spring and the Sydney Cup each autumn.

A quality handicap race, the Queensland Cup field is made up of gallopers coming off traditional lead-up races including the Listed Caloundra Cup (2400m) held a fortnight earlier or a Sydney lead-up like the Listed Winter Cup (2400m) over the mile and a half at the start of the month at Rosehill Gardens.

The 2018 edition of the Queensland Cup took place at the Sunshine Coast and was known as The Queen’s Cup before returning to Eagle Farm in 2019.

There was no 2020 Queensland Cup race due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
