Held over 2400m, the time honoured Launceston Cup is the final Group race in the Tasmanian Summer Carnival. It is a race with a long history, dating back to 1865 when Panic was the inaugural winner.
Since 1983 the race has consistently been held at Group 3 level and up until 2001 was held over 2600m. In 2002 the distance was reduced to 2400m and Tasmania’s 2 main Cup races -Hobart and Launceston- are now held over the same distance and conditions.
Total prizemoney on offer in 2018 is $200,000 with the winner to receive $120,000. The 2016 winner was the David Brunton trained Up Cups, ridden by David Pires ensuring Up Cups was able to secure the Hobart/Launceston Cups double. Other past winners include Epingle, Geegees Blackflash and Ista Kareem
