Grafton Cup Winners

Grafton Cup winners include some very renowned horses, such as Kensei who won in 1987 and went on to win the Melbourne Cup in the same year. Other notable winners include Cross Swords (1992) who won the Sydney Cup 2 years later, Abstraction (1993) a previous winner of the Doomben Cup, and Praise Indeed (1996) who went on to win the Brisbane Cup in 1998.

2013 Grafton Cup winner Mr O’Ceirin went on to place second in the 2014 Eagle Farm Cup; this follows a trend of successful horses in the Grafton Cup seeking further wins up north.
