Past Caulfield Cup Results

If you are looking to bet on the Caulfield Cup it can never hurt to check out past Caulfield Cup results. As the Caulfield Cup is open to thoroughbreds over the age of three it is possible for contenders to compete in the event several years running, so young thoroughbreds might return to win after coming second or third in their first attempt. It is also useful to know which trainers and jockeys tend to do well in the Caulfield Cup, as they tend to do well repeatedly.

No horse has won  back-to-back editions of the Caulfield Cup since Rising Fast (1954-55), with the only other dual Caulfield Cup winner since being Ming Dynasty (1977 and 1980) on non-successive years.

Looking over past Caulfield Cup results can also be helpful when betting on other races of similar distance and track conditions. If a horse performs well but just falls short in the Caulfield Cup it may perform better in a slightly shorter race – and you will be able to make these informed decisions once you have researched the past Caulfield Cup results.
