Easter Cup Winners

Boasting a rich history, the Easter Cup was first raced in 1909 as a Principal race over 10 furlongs, and was won by Otira. Between 1912 and 1916 the race changed between 10 and 13 furlongs, before remaining at 13 furlongs from 1917 to 1957 when it reverted back to 10 furlongs. In 1973 as Australia adopted the metric system, the Eater Cup converted to 2,000 metres, and has remained at this distance. In 1980 the race changed from its Principal status to receive the prestigious Group 3 stature.
