Albany Racing Club will host ‘The Road to Jericho’ Western Australia qualifier this Monday 26 April where the winner will be guaranteed a start in the Jericho Cup at Warrnambool Racecourse in Victoria.

The $100,000 race in Albany is one of several guaranteed start races hosted around the country, with all winners being sent to compete in the Jericho Cup, which has a rich history.

The Jericho Cup, fondly known as the ‘race for the battlers’, was first held in 1918.

Today, it is a feature race run over 4,600 metres with $304,000 in prizemoney, to honour Australia’s World War I heroes.

In addition to the race itself at the Albany Racing Club, there will be a variety of on-course activities to recognise ANZAC Day including a two-lane entry through cabanas with ANZAC Day themed displays, trade stalls, the 10th Light Horse Troop, an open pit-fire, raising of the flag and two-up after the races.
