Albury Gold Cup Race History
An Albury Cup was run as far back as 1845 when a horse called Romeo won. Miss Jean Spalding of Albury has a silver cup inscribed as the Albury Cup of 1845, which is believed to be the first cup trophy ever given for an Australian horse race. It became a Listed race in 2012 when Extra Zero won. It is now the highlight of a two-day racing carnival that is recognised as one of the most popular country racing carnivals in NSW. Albury even has a half-day holiday which has seen the attendance climb.
