The Geelong Cup is an annual Australian Group 3 Thoroughbred horse race. The race is open to horses of all ages and sexes. The race is held over a distance of 2400 metres at the Geelong Racecourse on the third or fourth Wednesday of October, (such that it falls thirteen days before the Melbourne Cup, which is always on the first Tuesday in November) and was first run in 1872.[1] The prize money for the race is A$300,000, and the race is considered one of the most reliable guides to the result of the Melbourne Cup.[2] The day of the race is a public holiday in the city of Geelong.[3]

Three Geelong Cup winners in recent years have gone on to win the Melbourne Cup; all of them European-trained. Irish horse Media Puzzle won the double in 2002, while French gallopers Americain and Dunaden won both races in 2010 and 2011 respectively.
