The Stockholm Cup International is a Group 3 flat horse race in Sweden open to thoroughbreds aged three years or older. It is run at Bro Park over a distance of 2,400 metres (about 1½ miles), and it is scheduled to take place each year in September.

History[edit]

The event was originally held at Ulriksdal as the Grand Prix. It was established in 1937, and was initially contested over 1,800 metres.

The race became known as the Stockholm-Löpning in 1951. Its prize money was increased significantly in 1955, and by this time its distance was 2,400 metres. It was renamed the Stockholm Cup in 1956.

There was no running from 1960 to 1962, and the race was transferred to Täby in 1963. Its prize was less than it had been previously, but it was raised again in 1975. The word "International" was added to its title in 1979.

The Stockholm Cup International was given Group 3 status in 1991. It was the first race in Scandinavia to be classed at this level. Täby Racecourse closed in May 2016 and the Stockholm Cup International was transferred to Täby's replacement, Bro Park, from the 2016 running.
