Kingsford Smith Cup History

First held in 1964, the Kingsford Smith Cup is one of Brisbane's best sprinting races.

Inaugurated as the J.T. Delaney Quality Handicap, the race has had a number of names and different distances in its past but the 1300m trip and the Kingsford Smith Cup name were both settled in the last two years.

While the fields in recent years haven't been as strong as they could be, the immortal Black Caviar, Strawberry Road and Apache Cat are all among the winners over the course of the race's 50 year history.
