Caulfield Cup

The Caulfield Cup

The Caulfield Cup is one of Australia's richest Thoroughbred horse races and the richest of its type in the world.  It is run over 2,400 metres and is held annually by the Melbourne Racing Club. The race is a handicap like the Melbourne Cup, which means that horses that compete in the Caulfield Cup are capable of running in the Melbourne Cup as well. Performances in the Caulfield Cup are one of the possible qualification methods for a run in the Melbourne Cup.  The race is open to horses three-years-old and over.

The Caulfield Racecourse

The Caulfield Cup is run at the famous Caulfield Racecourse which has a triangular shaped layout, comprising three straights, 30 metres wide, with a total circumference of 2080 metres and a finishing straight of 367 metres. 

Caulfield Cup Day

The Caulfield Cup is held on what is known as Caulfield Cup Day.  While the Caulfield Cup is the only Group 1 race at the meet, Caulfield Cup Day features a total of six Group races. These include the Group 2 Caulfield Cup Sprint, the Group 2 Tristarc Stakes for four-year-old mares, the Group 3 Norman Robinson Stakes for three-year-olds, the Group 3 David Jones Cup and the Group 3 Moonga Stakes for horses aged four-years-old and upwards.

Bet on the Caulfield Cup

While the final odds for the Caulfield Cup are not released until a few days before the race, lucrative odds are offered many months in advance. Punters are given the option of betting on their selection, usually while receiving very large odds, before the final fields or even nominations are released. While a win could result in a very large payday, punters take the risk of having their horses scratched from the race or not even entered, resulting in a loss of all wagers laid.
