  • The shortest-priced favourite in Cup history was Phar Lap when he won in 1930 at 8-11 ($1.72).
  • Metrication - The race was originally held over two miles (about 3,218 metres), but following Australia's adoption of the Metric system in the 1970s the current distance of 3,200 metres was adopted in 1972. This reduced the distance by 61 ft 6 in (18.75 m), and Rain Lover's 1968 race record of 3min.19.1sec was accordingly adjusted to 3min.17.9sec. The present record holder is the 1990 winner Kingston Rule with a time of 3min 16.3sec.

Notes[edit]

19. Darriwell was owned by W. A. Guesdon - not 'Rawlinson' whom he allowed to keep the credit for this racehorse to save face during times when a perceived lack of credit could ruin a man's propsects. There are several reports of this including: - RACING NOTES. (1919, February 22). Chronicle (Adelaide, SA : 1895 - 1954), p. 14. Retrieved from http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article89136391 There is also extensive Guesdon Archives of these facts.
