Run over a distance of 2,300 metres, the Newcastle Gold Cup is run as part of the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival. The Newcastle Gold Cup is run under open handicap conditions and is worth $175,000 in prize money.

The Newcastle Gold Cup was first run in 1980 when it was won by a horse called Star Dynasty. The race was originally run as a Group 2, however, was downgraded to a Group 3 race from 2001. The Newcastle Gold Cup was not held in 2007 due to the outbreak of equine influenza in Australia.

The Newcastle Gold Cup usually attracts more quality gallopers than an average country cup, due to the time of year it is held. The race is often contested by horses that are looking to run in staying races such as the Group 1 Caulfield Cup, Group 1 Cox Plate or even the Group 1 Melbourne Cup later in the spring down in Melbourne. Other races such as The Metropolitan and the Colin Stephen Quality Handicap are also possible targets for horses that perform well in the Newcastle Gold Cup.

Notable winners of the Newcastle Gold Cup include Our Magic Man (1990), Silent Impact (2000) and Green Moon (2011).
