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.

Caulfield Cup Winners

Caulfield Cup winners usually go on to run in other major Australian horse racing events, such as the Melbourne Cup. The Caulfield Cup – Melbourne Cup double has previously been achieved by 11 stayers in a single season with Ethereal (2001) the most recent.

Some successful runners from the Caulfield Cup go on to long careers as studs, siring new talent for racing seasons to come. Check out our dedicated Caulfield Cup form guide section to learn how to find out which thoroughbred athletes have sired this year’s favourite runners.

There have been six Caulfield Cup winners outside of Australia / New Zealaand. Mirage Dancer (2019) from Japan, ill-fated Japanese raider Admire Rakti (2014) and Godolphin’s Best Solution (2018) are the most recent internationally-trained Caulfield Cup winners from outside of Australia or New Zealand.

Other notable recent Caulfield Cup winners include Verry Elleegant (2020), Dunaden (2012), Viewed (2009), Northerly (2002) and Might And Power (1997).
