Sydney Cup



           Sydney Cup

History tells us that the first running of the Sydney Cup took place at Randwick racecourse on May 3rd 1866, and this is true, though it was actually the fifth running of a 2 mile handicap that had been part of the AJC autumn carnival since 1862.

The race that we know today as the Sydney Cup started out in 1862 as the ‘Jockey Club Handicap’ and was won by John Tait’s Talleyrand.
The following year the race was renamed the ‘Randwick Grand Handicap’ and it remained under this banner for the next three years.
By 1866 the Melbourne Cup and Adelaide Cup were already established in Victoria and South Australia respectively and the Brisbane Cup was about to have its inaugural running in Queensland.
Realising that New South Wales was the odd one out, the AJC made a change to its 1866 autumn racing carnival that saw the Randwick Grand Handicap become, the Sydney Cup.

The first Sydney Cup was won by the great Yattendon who started equal favourite with William Town’s champion galloper, Tarragon, who had won the Randwick Grand Handicap two years earlier.
Yattendon was owned by Thomas Rutledge but raced under the name and colours of “Mr Merry”.
“Mr Merry” was the assumed name of Yattendon’s trainer, Sam Jenner.

Given that both the Sydney Cup and Melbourne Cup are run as handicaps over two miles and that both races have such a long history, it would be reasonable to assume that many great stayers would have achieved the Sydney Cup/ Melbourne Cup double. This is far from being the case.
Only two horses, Carbine (1890) and Makybe Diva (2004) have won the Sydney Cup/Melbourne Cup in the same calendar year and only four horses have completed the double in separate years.
Those four horses are: The Barb, Lord Cardigan, Straight Draw & Galilee.

Five horses have won the Sydney Cup on more than one occasion:
The Barb 1868/69
Carbine 1889/90
Mosaic 1930/40
Veiled Threat 1940 & 42
Tie The Knot 1998/99

The largest field to line-up in a Sydney Cup occurred in 1905 & 1911 with both years having 28 runners. At the other end of the scale, the smallest field in 1990 &1993 saw just 9 runners face the starter.

The fastest Sydney Cup is shared by Apollo Eleven in 1973 and Just A Dancer in 1991, both of whom ran the two miles in 3:19.00.  

The biggest upset in a Sydney Cup occurred in 1926 when the rank outsider Murray King at 200/1 ‘fell-in’ to win the Cup by a half neck after leading them a merry chase for the entire two miles.


The Sydney Cup was run twice in 2017. The first running on April 8th was abandoned midway through the race due to the danger posed by a fallen horse that was still on the track a short distance past the winning post.
A few riders did not realise that the race had been abandoned and rode their mounts out to the line. Polarisation won the abandoned Sydney Cup and came out two weeks later for the re-run and again proved too good.


Twelve foreign-bred gallopers have won the Sydney Cup: 
1914 Lilyveil GB  1918 Rebus GB – 1919 Ian Or GB – 1986 Marooned GB
1993 Azzaam USA – 2004 Makybe Diva GB – 2011 Stand To Gain IRE
2013 Mourayan IRE – 2014 The Offer IRE – 2015 Grand Marshal GB
2016 Gallante IRE & 2017 Polarisation GB


Training honours for the Sydney Cup rest with Dan Lewis who saddled up the winner on five occasions:
1929 Crucis – 1935 Akuna – 1936 Contact – 1938 L’Aiglon – 1947 Proctor

There is no standout as far as riders go, with nine riders sharing the honours with three winners each. Those riders are:
T. Hales, A. Wood, W. Duncan, D. Munro, G. Moore, N. McGrowdie
N. Sellwood, P. Cook & J. A. Cassidy
