Description:
The Tattersalls Gold Cup is a Group 1 flat horse race in Ireland open to thoroughbreds aged four years or older. It is run at the Curragh over a distance of 1 mile, 2 furlongs and 110 yards (2,112 metres), and it is scheduled to take place each year in May.

History

The event was established in 1962, and it was originally called the Ballymoss Stakes. It was named in honour of Ballymoss, a successful Irish-trained racehorse in the late 1950s. The first two runnings were held at Limerick Junction over 1 mile and 3½ furlongs (1962) and 1 mile and 4 furlongs (1963). During the early part of its history it was open to horses aged three or older.

The race was renamed the Rogers Gold Cup in 1984, and the minimum age was raised to four in 1985. Under the sponsorship of Tattersalls it became known as the Tattersalls Rogers Gold Cup, and this was shortened to the present title in 1993. For a period the event held Group 2 status, and it was promoted to Group 1 level in 1999.
