Dunkeld Cup Spec Free

Dunkeld Cup Spec Free

For second year in row

The Dunkeld Racing Club has announced for the second year in a row, the 2021 bet365 William Thomson Dunkeld Cup will be ran behind closed doors and be a spectator-free event.

A proud and iconic event on the Spring Racing calendar, the race meeting and broader Dunkeld region welcomes more than 10,000 patrons from across Victoria and interstate.

The current Victorian roadmap for major events has crowd levels considerably less than their annual patronage which would mean our races would be significantly restricted and very different to the traditional experience with no free roaming and social interaction.

The Club is supportive of measures to restart the Victorian economy but did not feel they could provide an iconic experience under the current restrictions and made the decision with racegoers and the local community in mind.

Disappointed patrons and racegoers, will share the disappointment, but the club is already looking ahead to next year. All patrons who have purchased tickets and packages will be refunded within the coming days. We look forward to 2022 and hosting an unforgettable Dunkeld Cup.
