Adelaide Cup History

The first Adelaide Cup was raced on 21 April 1864 at Thebarton Racecourse and ran under weight for age conditions over two miles.

Held on the second Monday of March since 2006, this race has now received a status in Adelaide as a public holiday for people to attend the event.

Quite often, especially in recent times we have seen the second grade stayers take out this race. But 2019 winner Surprise Baby put this race back on the map with arguably a performance that should have seen him take out the Melbourne Cup.

Lord Reims is the only horse to have ever taken out three edtions of this event in a row and has had the main lead up race, over 2600m named in his honour.
