Winter Cup reinstated

The Canterbury Jockey Club has announced that the Gr.3 Winter Cup (1600m) will be run on Saturday 15 August 2020.

The Grand National Festival of Racing was a casualty of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the racing calendar, however, the Winter Cup has found a new date in the new season.

The race will be run over its traditional distance of 1600. with the Group Three stake to be confirmed when the New Zealand Thoroughbred Racing funding policy is released later this week.

Usually early entries are taken for the Winter Cup but that will not be the case this year and entries will close with the other races on the programme on Tuesday 11 August 2020.
