The Melbourne Cup is widely recognised as one of the most prestigious horse racing events in the world, and the Melbourne Cup horses that line-up in the world’s richest handicap are the best in the business.

Many Australian trainers go through their entire career with the hope of someday having a horse good enough to enter the $8 million race on the first Tuesday of November, and more and more we are seeing imported Melbourne Cup horses bred to stay the testing two mile distance.

It is also becoming very common place to find a strong international charge with Northern Hemisphere-trained Melbourne Cup horses making a raid for the ‘Loving Trophy’.

Melbourne Cup history shows a number of recent internationally-trained Melbourne Cup winners including most recently Rekindling (2017) and Cross Counter (2018).

In 2019 the locals were back in winning form with the Danny O’Brien-trained Vow And Declare becoming the first Australian-bred Melbourne Cup winner meanwhile since Shocking back in 2009.

With only the very best stayers from around the globe being granted the honour of a start in the capacity 24-horse Melbourne Cup field, you can be assured that each year’s race will possess an incredible amount of talent and staying ability.

The 2020 Melbourne Cup Horses are officially known when final acceptances are announced on the Saturday prior to the race following the VRC Derby Day action.

The Melbourne Cup 2020 field will be released on October 31, 2020 and the confirmed Melbourne Cup horses to be detailed below.
