While our priority is together To Win the Melbourne Cup, we’re determined to have fun and introduce you to a lot of people and new experiences along the way.
This disclosure statement is a summary of important information relating to membership of The Cup Club. It also references further information that can be found in The Cup Club Membership Terms and Conditions.
The Cup Club is operated by The Cup Club Pty Ltd (ACN 165 313 995) (the Operator). In this disclosure statement references to “we”, “us” or “our” are references to The Cup Club.
While our priority is together To Win the Melbourne Cup, we’re determined to have fun and introduce you to a lot of people and new experiences along the way. The Cup Club offers members a range of benefits including special ‘invitation only’ events and sharing in the experience of racehorse ownership.
Importantly, membership of The Cup Club does not entitle members to any right, title or interest in the Operator or in any of the racehorse ownership syndicates in which the Operator may invest.
Membership fees are currently $50 (plus GST) per month. If you choose to pay your membership fees annually in advance you will receive a discounted rate of 15%. No additional expenses apply to membership. We do however reserve the right to charge a ticket price for attendance at special Cup Club events.
You will receive regular email updates from us about our horses, activities and our upcoming events. You will also be able to keep up to date about The Cup Club through our website and social media channels.
The Cup Club offers a range of membership benefits, including the right to attend special ‘invitation only’ events and to share in the experience of racehorse ownership. You can always find a current list of membership services, benefits and upcoming events at www.thecupclub.com.au and follow us on various Cup Club social media accounts.
A significant membership benefit is derived from participating in the Operator’s part ownership of racehorses: racehorses that have been identified by their trainers as ‘stayers’ and targeted towards competing in racing events and, all going well, to ultimately qualify to race the Melbourne Cup.
Subject to available funds, the Operator will invest in racehorse syndicates (i.e. as a part owner) that are aligned with The Cup Club’s purpose. All racehorse investment decisions will be made at the sole discretion of the Operator’s current board.
If The Cup Club wins prize money from our racehorse ownership activities then this money will be re-invested by the Operator into providing The Cup Club benefits. As noted below, approximately 80% of the total amount of membership fees, and any race winnings, will be applied by the Operator in the racehorse investment activities.
The Cup Club’s business plan involves committing approximately 80% of membership fees towards horse ownership activities. The remaining 20% of membership fees will be applied towards the provision of member benefits and the Operator’s operating costs. Member benefits and operating expenses include:
Membership of The Cup Club is operated on a month-to-month basis. You are free to end your membership at any time by notice to us or by simply discontinuing payment of your membership fees.
No cancellation fees or other adverse consequences apply if you elect to discontinue your membership. In fact you are always welcome to re-apply to join as a member in the future at a time that suits you. Monthly membership fees are not refundable.
If you elect to pay your membership fees annually in advance then a 15% discount will apply. Just as you are entitled to discontinue your month-to-month membership at any time and without consequence you are also entitled to terminate your annual membership upon written notice to us. A refund for the balance of your membership fees will be payable in accordance with The Cup Club’s membership terms.
