The Auckland Cup is a gruelling handicap race for any age horse, run over 3200m and dating back to its first running in 1874. The Auckland Cup itself is a magnificent Victorian trophy that Queen Victoria commissioned her Crown Jeweller to make in 1889. Gifted to the Club in the 1930s by Moss Davis (an Auckland Racing Club member), this priceless silver trophy reflects the heritage and prestige of the great race.

Other feature races on the day include the Group lll $70,000 McKee Family Sunline Vase and the Group lll $70,000 Westbury Classic.

And if your boss asks where you are? Just say you're on a course.
