The Maitland Gold Cup was first run in 2003 and taken out by Thread Prince, on grass, over 457m.

Track upgrades in 2004 meant the race was not run that year, but it was back on loam the following year over 450m.

The race, which took Group 2 status in 2010, has become a popular feature on the racing calendar and has been won by some smart greyhounds over the years.

The brilliant Black Magic Opal won in 2013, while Victorian star Paw Licking won the feature in 2014.

In 2017 Aussie Infrared won the sprint, Jason Mackay’s Aston Duke won in 2018, and in 2019 Black Forge took out the race for Darren Sultana.

In 2020 the Gold Cup was won by Mottza a $34 outsider for mother and son training team, Pat and Jackson Chalker.
