The NE Manion Cup is a Group 3 race held at the Rosehill Gardens Racecourse during the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival. Taking place on Golden Slipper Stakes Day, it is raced alongside some notable Group 1 races, such as the Golden Slipper Stakes, George Ryder Stakes and the Rosehill Guineas. Run over the staying distance of 2400m, it is a race for three-year-olds and up, and is contested under quality handicap conditions.
Elevated to a Group 3 race for the 2013/2014 season, the event continues to grow in stature. This race generally is a lead up to the Group 2 Chairman’s Handicap and the Group 1 Sydney Cup, both of which are held at the Royal Randwick Racecourse. In 2014, Gai Waterhouse’s stayer The Offer took out the Manion Cup before saluting in the Group 1 Sydney Cup.
