The Caulfield Cup 2016 is one of the world’s toughest handicap races and is run over 2400m at Caulfield Racecourse in Victoria during the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival. The highlight of the Caulfield Cup Carnival, the race offers $3 million in total prize money making it the world’s richest mile and a half handicap race.
The Caulfield Cup is regarded as one of the key lead-up races to the iconic Melbourne Cup run over the two miles at Flemington on the first Tuesday of November. The major Spring Cup’s double has been achieved by twelve horses including Let’s Elope in 1991, Doriemus in 1995, Might and Power in 1997 and, most recently, Ethereal in 2001.
