Collie is set to be the venue of the 2020 Tom Quilty Gold Cup, Australia’s prestigious National 160km event. The Collie tracks provide a beautiful ride along sandy and gravel tracks, over a mix of flat and undulating ground through farmland and forest. It is set to be run from our very own Collie Race Track over the Friday and Saturday.
The Tom Quilty Gold Cup Endurance Ride National Championship is the premier ride on the endurance calendar in Australia. The prestige associated with winning this event, as well as competing, is immense. Making it 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. 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.
