Gosford Gold Cup Day is conducted by the Gosford Race Club and appeals to racing fans from across New South Wales, and often keen interstate hopefuls. The event attracts thousands to the Gosford Racecourse in provincial NSW. The main event is the Gosford Gold Cup over 2100m, with the Group 3 Belle of the Turf Stakes and the Listed Takeover Target Stakes support acts.
Located about 70km from Sydney, the racecourse is suited to horses which can race on the speed and sprint home at the top of the short straight. One of the only twilight events held during the Sydney Autumn Carnival, it has become one of the premier events for the town of Gosford.
