The Copenhagen Cup has a rich history, equine and human. The first three editions were won by the sport's legendary Charlie Mills driving Guy Bacon and Walter Dear (two wins). This pair were imported from the United States. Mills won again 29 years later with the equally legendary french mare Gelinotte. Winners of the Copenhagen Cup include many of the best in the history of the sport, including the late Moni Maker in 1998.

Since Copenhagen Cup was introduced in 1975 there have been several  Danish victories including Hairos, Meadow Roland (three time winner), Legendary Lover K in 2002 and Wishing Stone in 2012. Dewayne Minor campaigned the last two in their successful US careers . The race record is held by the Italy’s Libeccio Griff , who scored in 1.10.7kr in 2011 for Bjorn Goop.

One of the most eventful, in this reporters opinion, Copenhagen Cup races was the 2006 edition when parked out Mara Bourbon gained advantage just before the line and held off charging Giant Diablo for the victory.
