The Hawkesbury Gold Cup is a Group 3 open handicap race held on a Saturday each year in May at Hawkesbury racecourse in New South Wales. The race is run over a distance of 1600 metres and worth $200,000 in prizemoney. The 2018 Hawkesbury Gold Cup was won by Kingsguard from Ecuador with Mccreery third.
More recently the Hawkesbury Gold Cup was held on VRC Oaks day during the four-day Melbourne Cup Carnival, but was moved to May for the 2013/2014 racing season to become the feature event of a standalone race day alongside the Group 3 Hawkesbury Guineas and Group 3 Hawkesbury Crown.
The Hawkesbury track is located about 65km west of the Sydney city centre, between Richmond and Windsor, and is directly opposite the Richmond Air Force Base.

The Hawkesbury Gold Cup is an above average country cup race that normally attracts handy local types, or better class horses that make the trip up from Sydney, and generally the race will be taken out by a fit, in-form galloper or an emerging type on the way up.
The move from spring to the autumn may attract some of the lesser lights from the recently finished Sydney autumn racing carnival looking for an easier black type race to add to their reseumes.
Kingsguard (2018) ran fifth in the Gr3 Doncaster Prelude over 1500m at Rosehill before winning this event and recent Hawkesbury Gold Cup winners include Fabrizio (2017) and Amovatio (2016).
Hawkesbury race track has a circumference of 2070m and there is a slight rise from the home turn to the winning post. The track surface is turf and the straight length is 380m and horses race in a clockwise direction.
