Sale Cup 2021

Sunday October 24, 2021

Ladbrokes Tip: The Sale Cup serves as a potential lead-up to the Melbourne Cup Carnival features.

The Sale Cup is a Listed feature for milers held on the Sunday after Cox Plate Day in late October during the annual Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival.

The Sale Cup field features runners coming off a lead-up run in a race like the Seymour Cup (1600m) and All Too Huiying (2020) was the last horse to complete the double. In 2021 the Sale Cup winner Milton Park ran a lead-up third in the Seymour Cup.

Run at Sale Racecourse over 1600m the open handicap offers prize money of $200,000 and can serve as a potential lead-up to bigger and better races over the Melbourne Cup Carnival.

In 2019 Gold Fields won the Sale Cup before taking out the Group 3 Sandown Stakes on Zipping Classic Day before the latter was moved to Underwood Stakes Day.

This year the Sale Cup ran on Sunday October 24, 2021 and was won by Milton Park.
