The Kingsford-Smith Cup and Doomben 10,000 are often the first two steps prior to the Stradbroke.
The Kingsford-Smith Cup is the lone Group 1 on the day with support races including the Group 2 BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m), along with five Group 3 events.
It is held over the sprint distance of 1300m and is an open weight-for-age race that is either targeted by runners resuming from spells or those having had a small let-up from the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.
Although it has only held Group 1 status since 2006, the stars to have won the race reads like a who’s who of Australian racing.
It was first contested in 1964 when taken out by Rashlore when the event was known as the JT Delaney Quality Handicap. It has had numerous name changes with the event being called the BTC Cup between 2004-16. In 2017, the race became known as the Kingsford-Smith Cup, named after Australian aviator Charles Kingsford Smith.
Black Caviar is the most famous horse to have won the event with the unbeaten mare having claimed success by two lengths ahead of Hay List as the $1.10 favourite in 2011.
Other notable winners of the Kingsford-Smith Cup include Vinegar Joe (1980), Strawberry Road (1983), High Regard (1989), Buck’s Pride (1993-94), Accomplice (1997), Falvelon (2000 & 2003), Apache Cat (2008), Albert The Fat (2010), Sea Siren (2012), Malaguerra (2016) and Clearly Innocent (2017).
