  • 2nd: #9 God Of Thunder
  • 3rd: #2 Malibu Style



The Group 2 Caulfield Sprint is held at Melbourne’s Caulfield Racecourse on the same day as the $5 million Caulfield Cup. The 1000m open handicap offers $300,000 in prize money and is regarded as having the most competitive field of sprinters in all 1000m to 1200m races in the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival.

Caulfield Cup Day also features a host of other Group status races including the Group 2 Tristarc Stakes (1400m) and Group 3 Ladbrokes Classic (2000m) making for a top day of spring racing and punting.

Horses may come into the Caulfield Sprint field via a lead-up run in a race like the Group 2 Gilgai Stakes (1200m) at Flemington earlier in the month, or Sydney’s Group 2 Premiere Stakes (1200m).

The best sprinters out of the Caulfield Sprint field will continue onto a Group 1 spring showdown including in 2011 when Sepoy won the Coolmore Stud Stakes next-up on Victoria Derby Day during the Melbourne Cup Carnival.

The 2019 Caulfield Sprint ran on Caulfield Cup Day on Saturday October 19, 2019 and was won by Miss Leonidas.

Caulfield Sprint History

First raced in 1983 and won by Bow Mistress, the Caulfield Sprint has undergone plenty of name changes since it was first recognized as the Racing Museum Sprint. Over the years the race has been known as the Brylcream Sprint, National Sprint Championship, Caulfield Sprint, Jupiter’s Casino Sprint, Conrad Jupiter’s Sprint, Schillaci Stakes, Mercedes-Benz Sprint, National Telecoms Group Sprint, Dodo Internet Sprint and now it is known as the Thai Airways International Sprint.

First recognised as a Listed race, the Caulfield Sprint then became a Group 3 event in 1993 and finally advanced to Group 2 status in 1999. The race has only had one double winner which was Toledo in 1997-98 and was won with the fastest recorded time by Jet Spur in 2005 with 1 minute 2.1 seconds. The slowest winning time was recorded by 1992 winner Tanjian Prince with 1 minute 6.2 seconds.

The Caulfield Sprint was contested over 1000m for 2015 giving to a quicker winning time (57.45 seconds) and was a dead heat for first for the second time in as many years.
