The Cup Club is a new low-cost racing club that gives racing enthusiasts the opportunity to live the life of an owner and to achieve horse racing folklore - winning the Melbourne Cup.

The brainchild of Melbourne entrepreneur John Wall, the Cup Club already has a stake in seven high quality, proven stayers and is endorsed by some of racing's most recognisable names including champion Melbourne Cup winning jockey Damien Oliver.

The Cup Club is about sharing the passion for the Cup and making dreams possible for the average punter at a fraction of the cost.

The Cup Club strategy is based on the concept of crowdfunding. Let’s face it, not everyone has the hundreds of thousands of dollars that it costs to buy a stake in a quality stayer. We circumvent that process by pooling our resources to buy fractional ownership of a stable of proven stayers. All Cup Club horses are ready to compete on the world stage and have performed at Group Level or have pre-qualified or plan to pre-qualify for the Melbourne Cup.

And whilst the Melbourne Cup is our ultimate goal, we’ll be setting our sights on all of the other big Cup races around the nation as well. Members will also be able to enjoy the business networking and social opportunities that the Cup Club offers, through a series of exciting events scheduled throughout the year. We’re offering all of this for one low, all-inclusive monthly price of $199 plus GST. No upfront payments or locked  in contracts and no yearlings bought at the sales. We’re also not-for-profit, that means that every dollar that comes into the Cup Club goes back into member benefits, growing our stable and expanding our resources.

We want to enable our members to become a part of the magnificent obsession that is The Melbourne Cup!
