Geraldton Gold Cup

The Geraldton Cup, is an unlisted Thoroughbred horse race, which was first run on 8 December 1887 with a winner's purse of £300. The race, staged over 3,200 metres was won by Baron Necktar a full brother to Dunlop, the Melbourne Cup winner of the same year. In 1887, the Perth Cup had a winner's purse of £250 and placed Geraldton racing ahead of what was to become one of Western Australia's most popular races.

The Geraldton Gold Cup is hosted by the Geraldton Turf Club.

In 2007 Tapdog became the first horse to win the race three times.
