EQUESTRIAN: Stirling's Crossing Equestrian Complex is celebrating winning the bid to host Australia's most prestigious endurance event, the Tom Quilty Gold Cup, in 2019.
Complex owner and founder of Stirling's Crossing Endurance Club Matthew Sample said he was delighted that the venue had secured the event given it only opened last year.
"The Tom Quilty is the biggest national championship endurance ride in the southern hemisphere, spanning 160 kilometres and attracting over 300 riders from across Australia,” Sample said.
"We're thrilled to be hosting it in Imbil for the first time in 2019 and expect to have horses and riders travelling from all corners of the country to compete.
"It really is an iconic event steeped in history since it was established by R.M. Williams in 1966 and the original gold cup still has pride of place in the Stockman's Hall of Fame in Longreach.”
