Unfinished ManThe Sandown Cup is one of the newer Group races on the Australian racing calendar, but it has quickly established itself as a significant one, and is regularly viewed as a good target for horses not quite up to Melbourne Cup level. Here are the top seven things you need to know about the Sandown Cup: 1. How far is the Sandown Cup? The Sandown Cup is run over 3,200 metres or 2 miles, the exact same length as the Group 1 Melbourne Cup. It’s for this reason that many horses unable to earn a start in that grade compete here, while in some instances, Melbourne Cup participants will back up and race in this event. 2. How long does the Sandown Cup last? It typically takes a little under three and a half minutes from start to finish for the winner of the Sandown Cup.
