Wodonga Gold Cup

Wodonga Cup

The annual Wodonga Cup is the local country cup clash held at the small Victorian city of Wodonga, which sits right on the border with New South Wales in the Murray region.

Located around 300 kilometres outside of Melbourne, although the Wodonga Cup is part of the New South Wales racing calendar, it usually attracts more horses from north of the border than its own state.

Worth around $66,000 in prize money and conducted over a mile (1600m) it is a summer race with the Wodonga Cup date scheduled for late November to early December each year providing a nice provincial staying race for off-season gallopers.
