The 2016 QTC Cup is a Group 2 race held in late May / early June annually at Eagle Farm Racecourse in Brisbane. The race is run over a 1300m distance and carries prize money of $175,000.

The race is run under handicap conditions with a quality field selected from the nominated entries. Usually the field is made up of local horses but there is a steady stream of interstate challengers coming up for a shot at the race. It’s held during the Brisbane Winter Carnival which means the horses running in the QTC Cup have a chance to impress in front of the entire nation.

The best form guide coming into the race is probably the Group 3 BTC Cup two weeks earlier and the best horses could jump up again after this race to the Stradbroke Handicap. The Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap is one of the most famous races in Queensland and held a week later at Eagle Farm over 1400m.

The other option is dropping back to Group 3 class to contest the WJ Healy Stakes on the final day of the Brisbane Winter Carnival.

Ortensia won the QTC Cup in 2009 before running third in the Stradbroke Handicap. Some of the best credentialed horses to triumph in the race  include Schillaci in 1992 and Century Kid with one of the fastest ever times in 2001. Recent winners include Chinchilla Rose (2008) and Catapulted (2010).
