The Albury Gold Cup is one of Australia’s best known country race days and a truly coveted prize outside of the capital cities.

It is one of the true races where local and big name trainers compete side-by-side on a level playing field. Winning trainers include the big names Tony McEvoy and Lee Freedman, while local trainer Craig Widdison won with Willi Willi in 2018.

Typically it’s the big stable horses that fight it out, but never discount the advantage of local knowledge.
