2010 Caulfield Cup Results

The 2010 Caulfield Cup was run on Saturday 16 October 2010 at Caulfield Racecourse in Melbourne. After rain threatened to cancel the $2.5 million Group 1 race Descarado won the 2010 Caulfeld Cup beating favourites such as Shocking, Metal Bender and Alcopop on the heavy track.

Coming in second was Harris Tweed, who gave Descarado a great battle for the victory, and Monaco Consul snatched third in a photo from the strongly finishing Shocking.

Descarado’s impressive win from barrier 15 was also the first time that champion trainer Gai Waterhouse has won the Caulfield Cup.
