Who Shot Thebarman ($18)

The Sydney Cup is one of the more interesting races on the Australian Group One calendar. While it has always existed in the shadow of the Melbourne Cup, the Sydney Cup is nevertheless a historic and prestigious race to win.

Since the introduction of The Championships and the increased prize money that comes with it, the Sydney Cup has improved in quality in recent years. With a prize purse of two million up for grabs, overseas raiders are set to journey to Sydney shores, thinking they have the superior quality over Australian stayers.

The Sydney Cup was first run in 1862, under the name of the Jockey Club Handicap. The race name changed again the following year, when the two-mile gallop was called the Randwick Grand Handicap. In 1866, the race became the Sydney Gold Cup, in opposition to the Melbourne Cup that was gaining in popularity.

Even though the Sydney Cup never really took off like its Melbourne equivalent, it has still always been one of the best and toughest examination of stayers in Australia. The honour roll of past winners highlights this fact, with the likes of Carbine, Wakeful, Galilee and Kingston Town all greeting the judge.

The 3,200-metre distance range really suits the hardened stayers. At Randwick, the horses jump from the side straight, shortly before coming around the home turn for the first time. After then passing the winning post, the field of horses complete a full lap of the circuit, at the end of which the winner is decided.

2018 Sydney Cup

After the drama-packed 2017 editions, the 2018 Sydney Cup got back to normal. And what could be more fitting than a victory from the grand old stayer Who Shot Thebarman?

Thebarman was given a quiet ride at the back of the field, before he was revved up around the home turn, coming with a wide run. Fellow roughie Zacada shot up the inside rail, and looked the winner every stage of the final furlong. But with a late dive, Thebarman just got the bob in.
