TAB Townsville Cup

TAB Townsville Cup is the pinnacle of racing, a jewel in the crown of the Cluden Park Winter Racing Carnival, and the ultimate action-packed day offering an unmissable experience.  

The first Townsville Cup was run at Cluden Park in 1884, marking it as one of the richest and longest standing races in the nation.

Now in its 138th year, the premier event is the pinnacle of racing and a drawcard for crowds from far and wide to compete in, and marvel over.

Rush trackside for two of North Queensland’s premier races of the year: Cleveland Bay Handicap and the Townsville Cup.
