The 2018 Tattersall’s Cup is a Group 3 race held annually during June at Eagle Farm Racecourse in Brisbane. It is run over a trip of 2200m and worth $200,000 in prize money. The race brings to a close the Eagle Farm racing carnival and is the second last weekend of the Brisbane winter carnival.
It is held on the same card as the Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara or ‘Winter Stakes’.
The Tattersall’s Cup is one of the final chances for horses to taste black type success in Brisbane during the carnival.
With the exception of the Caloundra Cup on the Sunshine Coast this also concludes the middle distance races which are usually well represented over the period.
Races such as the Group 3 Chairman’s Handicap and the Group 3 Premier’s Cup give great lead ins to this race.
Horses could also come out of the bigger events such as the Group 1 Doomben Cup or Brisbane Cup.
The genuine top liners may not push on to this race in favour of spelling ahead of the spring but some good types will continue on with the promise of some decent prize money.
The race was established in 1924 and has a long colourful history. Recently, notable stayer Ironstein won it in 2011 after Mirrasalo in 2010 and Hume in 2009.
