The Race: First conducted at WFA in 1990. Nearly half the winners of this race since 1989 have been winners of the Hollindale Stakes at the Gold Coast, the winner of that race is exempt from ballot in the Doomben Cup.
Multiple winners of the Doomben Cup: Scenic Shot (2009/11) & Earlwood (1959/60), Rough Habit is the only horse to win three consecutive Cups (1991-93).
Notable winners: Bernborough (1946).
Rough Habit (1991, 1992, 1993), Durbridge (1994), Might and Power (1998), Intergaze (1999).
Best Lead Up Races: Hollindale Stakes, Toowoomba Cup, Doncaster Hcp.
Time: Track record at the Doomben 2020m is 2:00.53 (Might and Power)
The Track: two large sweeping turns front and back. Sprint distance races favour the inside draw up to 1350m, barriers are not so important for middle to staying distance races. The Doomben Cup over 2000m starts from a short chute leading in to the home straight giving all runners a chance to gain a position. With a long straight run before the first turn and into the finish all runners will have their chance in the concluding stages.
