Lord Mayors Cup Winners, Past Results & Latest News

Lord Mayor's Cup run at the Doomben Racecourse. Winners and past results of the Lord Mayors Cup

Winners and Past Results for the Lord Mayor's Cup.

Brisbane Racing Club plays host to the Lord Mayors Cup, a Group 3 race for horses three years old and over at Doomben Racecourse during the winter racing carnival. The 1600 metre race is a weight for age event with $125,000 reserved for the winner.

Other major races of the day include the Group 3 Premiers Cup and Group 3  Fred Best Classic, among others. Some of the three year olds may fancy their chances in the Lord Mayors Cup after a run in the Group 3 Chairman's Handicap at the same track, which is often a good warm up race held a fortnight earlier.

Weight for age conditions favour the more than handy types who have the ability to travel the mile and beyond. Notable horses have gone on to win several other Group races including the Caulfield Cup, a feat managed by Sky Heights in 2001. Runners in the event may head to Eagle Farm Races for a shot at the Group 2 PJ O'Shea Stakes over 2400 metres on Oaks Day. Rampant Lion managed to score in both events in 2009 while Head Turner also achieved the feat earlier in 2007.

Other horses may look for an entry in the Group 2 Queensland Guineas held at Eagle Farm. Rothesay managed to win both the events in 2010. The 1400 M Group 2 Dane Ripper Stakes held at Eagle Farm is also another follow up race with 2011 runner up in the Lord Mayors Cup, St. Germaine, finishing fifth in the event. The 1800 M Group 2 Hollindale Stakes held at the Gold Coast track may also have a few contestants heading for the Lord Mayors Cup.

The inaugural event, known as the BATC Labour Day Cup, was held in 1979 as a principal race. It was granted Group 3 status in 2000 and has been run under its present name since 2005. Mares with a 2 kg advantage are the ones to look out for in the Lord Mayors Cup even though they may not have produced outstanding results in their earlier runs. Often, the race has a small field.
