The Sydney Cup is the major handicap distance race of the Sydney autumn carnival for open horses and it's run over 3200m (2 miles), which is the same distance as Australia's most famous race, the Melbourne Cup. The race generally attracts the best available local stayers and any interstate raiders up to the challenge, but is typically not a high quality affair ike its Melbourne counterpart.
Over the years classy gallopers such as Makybe Diva (2004), Tie The Knot (1998-99) and Count Chivas (1996) have all won this race and Makybe Diva went on to win the Melbourne Cup that same year on the way to claiming three consecutive wins in the great race.
The Gr2 Chairman's Handicap held on the first day of the Randwick carnival is generally a good guide to the Sydney Cup with The Offer (2014), Jessicabeel (2010), No Wine No Song (2008), Henderson Bay (2002), Linesman (1997) and King Aussie (1990) all taking out the Chairmans Hcp & Sydney Cup double in recent times.
Who Shot Thebarman (2018) ran third in the Gr1 The BMW over 2400m at Rosehill before scoring a well deserved win in this event and recent Sydney Cup winners include Polarisation (2017) and Gallante (2016).
