The Sunshine Coast Racecourse, approximately an hour’s drive north of Brisbane, hosts various racing events year-round including the Caloundra Cup and Glasshouse Handicap races. It has wide tracks with long 400m straights and open angled bends.

Cushion Track is used during Friday evening meetings during summer to reduce damage to tendons and ligaments, offering unique racing experience in Australia.

Caloundra Cup Carnival

Caloundra Cup Carnival provides an exciting finale to Sunshine Coast Racecourse’s Queensland Winter Racing Carnival. Listed at $300,000.000 this year’s event includes Group 3 Winx Guineas and Listed Glasshouse Handicap races as well.

Champion mare Winx delivered an unforgettable performance in 2015’s Winx Guineas race, prompting its renaming after her. Now known as the Winx Guineas, this highly prestigious event draws quality winter stayers and marks the final Group race of Queensland winter carnival.

Caloundra Cup preparation begins early at Eagle Farm with races like the Gr3 Gunsynd Classic or Daybreak Lover Stakes; Stockman (2021) and Supply And Demand (2017) were two recent three-year-olds who completed both legs of this winter double: Caloundra Cup/Grafton Cup double.

Early nominations for the 2022 Caloundra Cup close on Monday before its run on Saturday; final acceptances reveal its field on Wednesday prior. Punters can view both full fields and pre-betting markets here.

Caloundra Cup Day

The Caloundra Cup, held at the conclusion of Queensland Winter Racing Carnival and offering $300,000.000 in prize money. It serves as the highlight on a 9-race card including Coastal Vehicle Solutions Caloundra Cup, Group 3 Winx Guineas and Listed Glasshouse Handicap races.

Recent winners include Stockman (2021), Supply And Demand (2017), Index Linked (2015) and Ironstein (2010) from both Queensland-trained horses as well as interstate raiders.

Punters will likely back Ciaron Maher & David Eustace-trained Le Don De Vie as the 2023 Caloundra Cup favourite after she impressed punters at last weekend’s Group 3 Tattersall’s Cup at Eagle Farm. Early betting markets indicate this could be the favorite.
