2023 Queensland Country Cups Challenge


Get ready to witness a breathtaking spectacle as Racing Queensland's Country Cups Challenge soars to new heights this year, celebrating an incredible one-year milestone of our community partnership with the Royal Flying Doctor Service - Queensland Section (RFDS).

The Country Cups Challenge will play a vital role as an important fundraising initiative for the RFDS, an organisation that has been saving lives in rural and remote Queensland for more than 90 years.

Join us trackside as over 16 exhilarating heats take place across regional Queensland, featuring the very best horses in country racing chasing a berth to battle it out in a Metropolitan final.

The Country Cups Challenge 1600m ($200,000) will be held at Brisbane RC at Doomben on Saturday December 2, 2023 during the Queensland Summer Racing Carnival
