The Kingsford-Smith Cup is one of the ‘majors’ of the Brisbane Winter Carnival alongside the Doomben 10,000, Doomben Cup and Stradbroke Handicap.

One of the most famous editions of the Kingsford-Smith Cup was during its time as the BTC Cup. The 2011 running of the race will long live in the minds of many after top galloper Hay List, himself a multiple Group One winner, led and kicked clear at the top of the straight only for the great Black Caviar to run him down. The pair streeted the rest of their rivals.

Other big names to adorn the honour roll of this race include Queenslanders Chief De Beers, General Nediym and Falvelon.
