Sydney Cup History

First run as the Jockey Club Handicap in 1862 and rebranded as the Sydney Cup in 1866, famous early winners of this feature include The Barb and Carbine.

The Sydney Cup was given group one status in 1980 which was celebrated in fine style with one of Australia's best ever gallopers in Kingston Town taking it out that year and it's a race that grown in popularity and prestigue since then.

With Tie The Knot and three-time Melbourne Cup winning mare Makybe Diva on the honor roll, there's some champion victors of the Sydney Cup along with many upset winners as the last favourite to have prevailed in this Handicap came back in 2014 when the Gai Waterhouse-trained The Offer bolted in to score.
