The Tattersall's Cup is Group 3 feature race of the Queensland winter racing carnival conducted by Brisbane’s Tattersalls Racing Club.

Brisbane’s Tattersalls Club was formed in 1883 as a sporting club modelled on those established in Britain in the 19th century. It was particularly concerned with horse racing, and held its first race meeting in 1884.

The history of the Tattersalls Cup dates from 1924 and has traditionally been run at Ascot and then Eagle Farm racecourses over a range of distances up to 2236 metres. It has only once been run over 2400m in 2015 when the meeting was transferred to the Gold Coast due to reconstruction work at Eagle Farm.

From 1924 until 1941 the Tattersalls Cup was run at the now defunct Ascot racecourse in Brisbane.

The race was not run in 1942 due to World War II but resumed in 1943 and was held at Albion Park, the only functioning racecourse in Brisbane during the war years in 1944 and 1945. It has been run at Eagle Farm since 1946.

The Tattersalls Cup, an open age handicap, has been a Group 3 race since 1980.

The 2017 Tattersalls Cup has been transferred to Doomben and will be run over 2200 metres on Saturday June 24 for prizemoney of $200,000.

Only two horses have won the Tattersalls Cup twice – Cool Gent (1957/58) and Winfreux (1966/67). The weight carrying record of 9.12 (62.5kg) was set by Repshot in 1945.

Notable winners of the Tattersalls Cup before 1970 included Lough Neagh, Spear Prince, Euphrates, Earlwood, Dhaulagiri, River Seine, Swift Peter, Bright Shadow and Gypsy Moss.

In the last 47 years the winners have included Planet Kingdom, Gay Master, Purple Patch, Authentic Heir, Golden Rhapsody, El Laurena, Prince Majestic, Rushcutter, Dinky Flyer, Kensei, Eye Of The Sky, Donegal Mist, Oompala, Brave Prince, Belus, Ice Chariot, Hume, Ginga Dude and Ironstein.

The 2016 Tattersalls Cup was won by Index Linked from Tucanchoo with Malice third.
