Newcastle Gold Cup

Winners and Past Results for the Newcastle Gold Cup

The Newcastle Gold Cup is a Group 3 event held annually in September at Newcastle Racecourse in New South Wales.

Newcastle Gold Cup is run over 2300 metres and the event is run under open handicap conditions as part of the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival with prize money worth $175,000 on offer.

The Newcastle Gold Cup started way back in 1898 as a principal race and was granted Group 2 status in 1980. However, in 2001, it was downgraded to Group 3. The race usually finds more quality gallopers than the other average country runners, mainly due to the timing of the event. The field is usually made up of horses planning to contest in other staying races during the season such as the Group 1 Caulfield Cup, Group 1 Cox Plate, and sometimes even the prestigious Group 1 Melbourne Cup. Some of the top performers in the Newcastle Gold Cup target other races such as Group 1 AJC Metropolitan Handicap and the Group 3 Colin Stephen Quality Handicap.

Notable winners over the years have been Our Magic Man in 1990, Silent Impact in 2000, and Green Moon in 2011. The most successful winner of the Newcastle Gold Cup is undoubtedly Gurners Lane in 1982. He went on to create history by becoming the seventh horse out of eleven to complete the rare double of winning both the Caulfield Cup and the Melbourne Cup. He also won the then Group 2 AJC St. Leger and VRC St. Leger in 1982.

Green Moon, who placed first in 2011, went on to place second in the Group 1 Caulfield Cup. He came into the race after finishing runner up in the 2000 metre Sofitel Girl's Day Out Handicap at Flemington Racecourse. Home On A Wing came in second in the same year, but failed to place better than sixth in his later races. Gazza Guru who placed third in 2011 at Newcastle came in from a number of good placements in a variety of races, and managed to capitalise and go ahead and place in the top ten in all but one of his next six races.

Newcastle Racecourse is located in the Broadmeadow suburb in New South Wales, which is considered the social epicentre of the town. The track is operated by the Newcastle Jockey Club that conducts the Newcastle Newmarket Handicap, Cameron Handicap, and the Newcastle Spring Stakes, which are some the major events held here.
