TAB Melbourne Cup

The $600,000 Group 1 TAB Melbourne Cup is the world’s richest greyhound race.

Two Group 1 finals highlight the action on the track, and a complete entertainment package off it completes one of the most memorable nights one can experience at a sporting arena.

First run in 1956 and worth £500 to the winner, ‘the Cup’ has grown to become Australian greyhound racing’s ‘Holy Grail’, attracting the fastest greyhounds in the country.

In 2016 Ando’s Mac became the first  New South Wales trained greyhound to win the race since 2000.
