Tom Quilty

Tom Quilty Gold Cup

Friday 7th July to Sunday 9th July

Wirrina Cove Holiday Park, Wirrina Cove

The Tom Quilty Gold Cup is the premier ride on the endurance calendar in Australia and in 2017 it will be held at Wirrina Cove Holiday Park. The prestige associated with winning this event, as well as competing, is immense. It is the goal of all Australian endurance riders to attempt and be successful in this ride.

The original Tom Quilty Gold Cup is held in the ‘Stockman’s Hall of Fame’ in Longreach QLD as the inception of the Quilty Cup ride was nurtured by Queenslanders Erica and RM Williams who loved their distance riding and their beloved Arabian horses. RM’s Rockybar Stud was situated in QLD. The Quilty was named after RM’s old mate Tom Quilty of Spring Vale Station in the Kimberley Ranges of WA, who on request donated the valuable gold cup. for more information visit: http://tomquilty.com.au/2017/
