The City of Port Augusta Cup is the pinnacle of an exhilarating 8-race card of outback racing. Raced over 2300 meters, the Cup is a true stayers’ race and allows for punters to enjoy the field completing over one and a half laps of the Port Augusta track.
A hallmark of the City of Port Augusta Cup day is the Fashion at the Races competition held throughout the day and is always an exciting event.

With categories of Best Dressed Lady, Best Dressed Man, Most Elegant Lady, Local Lady of the Day, Best Millinery, and a junior’s category there is a category for everyone to enter in to!
