The Cranbourne Cup is a Open Handicap open handicap race held annually on a Sunday at Cranbourne racecourse during the Melbourne Spring racing carnival in mid October. The race is run over a distance of 2025 metres and worth $200,000 in prizemoney. The 2015 Cranbourne Cup was won by Digitalism from Kareeming with Index Linked third.

Cranbourne racecourse is located south-east of Melbourne on the South Gippsland Highway.

Unfortunately, the 2016 Cranbourne Cup was postponed due to extreme winds and Racing Victoria was unable to reschedule the cup day meeting during the 2016 spring carnival. An autumn 2017 option is being explored for the running of the Cranbourne Cup before being run again during the spring 2017-18 racing season.

2016 Cranbourne Cup info
Date: Sunday 9th October 2016
Track: Cranbourne racecourse, Cranbourne
Distance: 2025 metres
Race Type: Open Handicap
Status: Listed
Prizemoney: $200,000
2015 Winner: Digitalism

The Cranbourne Cup is an above average country cup with good prizemoney and is one of the bigger country cups on the racing calendar each year. The race tends to attract more than handy types most of the time who will continue to perform well in similar type country cups throughout the spring.

In recent times the Cranbourne Cup has produced a Sandown Classic winner in Sertorious (2nd in 2013), Melbourne Cup runner-up, On a Jeune (2004), and a Caulfield Cup third placegetter, Barbaricus (2nd in 2008).

Digitalism (2015) won a Handicap race over 2040m at Moonee Valley before leading all the way to win this event and recent Cranbourne Cup winners include Mourinho (2014) and Pakal (2013).

Spring Carnival Guide
This race has proven an average guide to the major staying races in Melbourne during the spring carnival over the years and the winner is usually just a handy stayer who is competitive in the city and stronger than the country class horses who normally contest this race.

Having said that, Pakal (2013) managed to win the Gr3 Carlyon Cup at Caulfield the following autumn, while Sertorius (2nd in 2013) won the listed Bendigo Cup at Bendigo, finished second in the Gr2 Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Flemington, before winning the Sandown Classic at Sandown. Vatuvei (8th in 2012) then won the Gr2 Moonee Valley Cup at Moonee Valley.

On a Jeune (2004) finished second in the 2005 Melbourne Cup the following year and Barbaricus (2nd in 2008) went on to run third next start in the Caulfield Cup before running second in the Gr1 Mackinnon Stakes on Derby Day.
