The 2016 Lord Mayors Cup is a Group 3 race that takes place at Doomben racecourse in May each year. Run over a distance of 1,600 metres, the Lord Mayors Cup is run as part of the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival. The Lord Mayors Cup is run under weight-for-age conditions and is worth $125,000 in prize money.
The race is extremely popular amongst local horses that have succeeded throughout the year at city grade. The Chairman’s Handicap is often a good guide to how a horse may perform in the Lord Mayors Cup. Those horses that run well in the Lord Mayors Cup may choose to go on to races such as the Group 2 Queensland Guineas for three-year-olds or the Group 2 PJ O’Shea Stakes.
The Lord Mayors Cup is held on Doomben 10,000 Day and shares its day with the Group 1 Doomben 10,000, Group 2 BRC Sires Produce Stakes, Group 3 Premier’s Cup, Group 3 Glenlogan Park Stakes, Group 3 Grand Prix Stakes and Listed Chief De Beers Quality. The 1996 and 1997 editions of the Lord Mayors Cup were cancelled due to heavy rain.
Notable winners of the Lord Mayors Cup include Sky Heights (2001), Restless (2003), Rothesay (2010) and Firebolt (2011).
