One of the feature events staged during the annual Grafton Winter Carnival.

Some of the standout sprinters from around the Northern Rivers and in fact Queensland attend the Grafton Carnival with an eye on the Sprinters Cup.

Back in 2013 Dave Irwin's speedy Scissor Queen took out the 407m sprint, while Tony Brett brought Chant down to win the race the following year.

Another to cross the border and win was Darren Russell with Precious Sal in 2017, while prior to winning the inaugural Masters Meteor in Sydney, the Evelyn Harris-trained Cosmic Bonus took out the Sprinters Cup in 2018.

In 2019 it was Casino-trained Painted Picture winning for Mark Wilkes.
