Hollywood Gold Cup Handicap

The Hollywood Gold Cup is an American Grade I stakes race for thoroughbred horses inaugurated in 1938 at Hollywood Park Racetrack in Inglewood, California. It was run as a handicap race until 1997 when it was switched to weight-for-age conditions. In 2005, the Gold Cup returned to the original handicap format.

The Hollywood Gold Cup is run over a distance of 1-1/4 miles on Cushion Track synthetic dirt and currently carries a purse of $500,000. It is open to three year olds and up and is one of the premier races on the West Coast of the United States, along with the Santa Anita Handicap from Santa Anita Park, and the Pacific Classic Stakes at Del Mar Racetrack. Only three mares have ever won the Hollywood Gold Cup. Happy Issue was the first in 1944 followed by Two Lea in 1952 and Princessnesian in 1968. In 1980, Mary Lou Tuck became the first woman trainer to win the Hollywood Gold Cup.
