2010 JRA Cup on September 24

August 27th, 2010

The 2010 JRA Cup is coming up in about a month’s time on Friday September 24. This Group 3 2040 metre race will be held, as usual, at Moonee Valley Racecourse as part of Manikato Stakes Night.

The 2009 JRA Cup was won by Alcopop, who went on to win the Group 2 Power Stakes and ran sixth in the Melbourne Cup. Third place JRA Cup finisher Shocking did even better after the race last season, with a victorious Melbourne Cup finish.

The JRA Cup has clearly grown up quickly, having only started in 2006 and now maturing into an important Group 3 run that could provide us with solid info on the best Melbourne Cup prospects.
