Winners and Past Results for the Liverpool City Cup.
Australia is well known for producing some of the best thoroughbred racehorses that grace the tracks around the country.
Some of the most prestigious black type races are held in Sydney which includes the Group 3 Liverpool City Cup held during the autumn racing carnival in March at Randwick racecourse in Sydney.
Horses in the quality handicap race travel over 1300 metres of the Warwick Farm track for a shot at prize money worth $150,000. Hosted by the Australian Jockey Club, the Liverpool City Cup attracts more than handy sprinters that perform well in 1200 metre events and may be used as a platform by trainers to spot potential milers for the rest of the season. The race sets the stage for some real competition and big bets in the season ahead.
The Liverpool City Cup is held alongside the Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes, one of the major races at Warwick Farm during autumn. The Group 3 Southern Cross Stakes held earlier at Randwick Races may serve as a good form guide for punters.
The Group 2 Breeders Classic at Randwick held earlier in February may also have top performers contest the Liverpool City Cup.
Horses may make their way to the Group 3 Newcastle Newmarket Handicap while the winner is exempt from ballot for the Group 1 Doncaster Handicap held at Randwick later in April. Horses may fancy their chances in the 1500 M Group 1 Coolmoore Stud Classic held at Rosehill Racecourse a fortnight later.
The Liverpool City Cup began as a principal race in 1970 and was granted Group 3 status in 1979.
Boasting and All Archie scored consecutive victories in 1989-90 and 1991-92 respectively while Bomber Bill in 2002 and Danleigh in 2008 are among the notable runners to win the event. Danleigh won the 1200 M Group 3 Frederick Clissold Stakes at Randwick prior to romping home ahead of Friday Creek in the Liverpool City Cup.
