Easter Cup Field

The Easter Cup field always contains a broad variety of horses from varied backgrounds. One of the better known Group 3 races of Australia’s Easter Saturday races, the final release of the Easter Cup field is always greatly anticipated. Since Otira’s victory in the race’s inaugural run in 1909 the Easter Cup field has contained some great horses who always put on an exciting show.
