The Kingsford Smith Cup formally know as the BTC Cup is a Group l sprint race which has been moved from the opening day of the Brisbane Winter Carnival. It is held at Eagle Farm racecourse each year over 1300m and is a highlight of the Carnival.
The race is at Group l level and boasts a total prize pool of $700,000 and is at WFA.
The 2017 Kingsford Smith Cup will be run on Saturday the 27th of May, 2017 at Doomben racecourse.
The Kingsford Smith Cup is now a major lead of race for the Stradbroke Handicap as well as a race which will see Doomben 10,000 runners contest which races a fortnight before.
The favourites have a horrible record in the race, with the lone two top picks to salute in the last decade being Black Caviar (2011) and Apache Cat (2008).
