Caulfield Cup Day 2012 has finally arrived and experts, form analysts, trainers and once-a-year punters are calling it one of the hottest Caulfield Cup fields to line up in recent times.
Apart from the Caulfield Cup, which features a mixture of quality internationals and locals, there are nine other races on an action-packed card including the Group 2 2012 Tristarc Stakes, Group 2 2012 Caulfield Sprint, Group 3 2012 David Jones Cup and Group 3 2012 Norman Robinson Stakes.
Melbourne has turned on fine weather for one of Australia’s biggest days of racing, which means a Dead 4 track and limited scratchings.
In the main event just 2011 winner Southern Speed has been scratched, with the emergencies the only other horses to come out.
