    Sydney Cup History

    The Sydney Cup is one of Australia's favourite staying races and without question the second-best two mile event in the country.

    First run and won in 1862 by Talleyrand, the race didn't gain Group 1 status until almost 120 years later when Kingston Town took out the 1980 event.

    Known as the Randwick Grand Handicap Sweepstakes early, the race was renamed the Sydney Cup in 1966 after an influx of prize money.

    Winning the Melbourne/Sydney Cup double has proved to be one of the hardest dual races to claim in Australian racing history with just Makybe Diva, Galilee, Straight Draw, Carbine, The Barb and Lord Cardigan the only horses to deliver.

    Today the Sydney Cup is run as part of The Championships and is one of the meet's most prestigious events.
