Looking for early info on this year’s Hobart Cup? The expert tipsters at Neds have put together everything you need to know before this year’s race.
Run over 2,400 metres on a Sunday in early February, the Hobart Cup is one of the three big races during the Tasmanian Summer Racing Carnival.
Currently holding Group 3 status, the Hobart Cup offers $250,000 in prize money and is the first leg of the popular Tasmanian Cups double.
The second leg is the Group 3 Launceston Cup (2400m) held a fortnight later and Eastender (2019) was the last horse to complete the double.
Brallos (1976-77) was the last back-to-back Hobart Cup winner. Since then there has been just one other horse to win multiple editions of the race with the marvel Geegees Blackflash saluting in 2012 and again three years later in 2015.
The Hobart Cup Carnival kicks off the Friday prior with the Group 3 Bow Mistress Trophy (1200m) for fillies and mares.
