The Macau Gold Cup is the third and final leg of the Macau Triple Crown series for four-year-olds. Raced over a distance of 1800m, which is the same length as the second leg of the Triple Crown the Macau Derby, this Group 1 flat race is worth HK$1.2million and is held at the Taipa Racecourse in late May each year.

Much of the field in the Gold Cup have previously contested the first two legs of the Triple Crown, the Macau Guineas (1500m) and the Macau Derby (1800m). It is an impressive achievement for a horse to win all three legs of the Macau Triple Crown, and the Macau Jockey Club offer the added incentive of a HK$1million bonus for the owner of any Triple Crown winner.

To date, no horse has won the Gold Cup as well as the first two Triple Crown races. Sunshine Sure Win, who was equal favourite in the betting markets with Nittan?s Crown for the 2009 race, came close to Triple Crown success having won the previous two legs of the series, winning her owner the $500 000 consolidation bonus.
