New Club Chases Cup Dream

Thursday, 31st October 2013

The Club Cup, a new low-cost racing club, is giving racing enthusiasts the opportunity to live the life of an owner and to achieve every owner's dream of winning the Melbourne Cup. The venture is the brainchild of Melbourne entrepreneur John Wall which targets proven stayers by leveraging existing syndications, reinvesting every dollar earned back through the Club with the aim of winning the Cup. The club already has a share in three promising stayers and is endorsed by some of sport and racing's most recognisable names including Simon O'Donnell, Tiffany Cherry and champion jockey Damien Oliver. "The Cup Club is not about making money. It's about chasing the world's greatest horse racing event with likeminded people at a fraction of the cost," said Wall. "Having a horse that races in the Melbourne Cup shouldn't be the exclusive domain of a select few. We want to rewrite the rules of racing and share the dream of competing in the Cup," Wall stated. The Cup Club's stable of horses include Only A Pleasure, a 4YO by Montjeu who has already pre-qualified for the 2014 Melbourne Cup, French colt Au Revior who won the Listed Toulouse Derby and has qualified for next year's cup, and the Peter Moody-trained gelding My Quest For Peace.
