The 2015 Balaklava Cup is a Listed mile event held at Balaklava Racecourse in South Australia. Held in late August or early September, the Balaklava Cup is one of the state’s biggest country races and as such attracts impressive crowds in excess of 12,000 people.
Run under open quality conditions over 1600m, the Balaklava Cup pays decent prize money of $80,000. The largest country meet in South Australia, Balaklava Cup Day attracts both decent horses and sizeable crowds for an excellent day of racing, fashion, and entertainment.
The Balaklava Cup attracts a variety of horses, including local country runners and even some metropolitan-stabled horses. Horses usually target the Balaklava Cup following fairly successful runs in other black-type events, often of a higher grade. The Murray Bridge Gold Cup is a great follow-on event for horses that run well in the Balaklava Cup.
Balaklava Racecourse was established in 1903 and the Balaklava Cup is one of the oldest races it hosts. With a long, successful history, the Balaklava Cup today is recognised as somewhat more prestigious than its listed status.
Notable Balaklava Cup winners include Easy Landing (2001), Lord Mick (2004) and Bagman (2012).
