The Cup is a Group Two race event that is held at the Ascot Racecourse annually. The date is always set at New Year’s Day for the 2400m event but from this year, the event has been pushed back a bit. It is going to be arguably one of Perth’s premier race events that comes immediately after the Group 1 Kingston Town Classic, Group 1 Railway Stakes and group 2 Winterbottom Stakes.
The date is set for Saturday 4th of January 2020 at the same location, Ascot Racecourse. Initially the meeting was run as a 3200m race but since 2009, the distance has been scaled down to 2400m.
