The Caulfield Cup is one of the world’s toughest handicap races and is run over 2400m at Caulfield Racecourse in Victoria during the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival. The highlight of the Caulfield Cup Carnival, the race offers $5 million in total prize money making it the world’s richest mile and a half handicap race.

Caulfield Cup Day traditionally runs on the third Saturday in October and is the first of the ‘Big 3’ Spring Majors followed by the Cox Plate and Melbourne Cup. Caulfield Cup Day in Melbourne also has the same date as Sydney’s $15 million The Everest – the richest turf race in the world – held at Royal Randwick Racecourse.

The Caulfield Cup is regarded as one of the key lead-up races to the iconic Melbourne Cup run over the two miles at Flemington on the first Tuesday of November. The major Spring Cup’s double has been achieved by twelve horses including Let’s Elope in 1991, Doriemus in 1995, Might and Power in 1997 and, most recently, Ethereal in 2001.

The next edition of the Caulfield Cup 2021 runs on Saturday October 16, 2021.

The Caulfield Cup field attracts the season’s best stayers from both Australian and international racing stables. Many of the horses in the Caulfield Cup field are looking to stretch out to the two miles of the iconic Melbourne Cup (3200m) on the first Tuesday of November at Flemington.

Good lead-up races into the Caulfield Cup each spring including the Group 1 Turnbull Stakes (2000m) at Flemington that produced the 2016 winner Jameka (2nd) and Verry Elleegant (2020) who did the double, and the Group 1 Caulfield Stakes. Horses coming into the Caulfield Cup field via a Sydney Spring Racing Carnival run traditionally have contested the Group 1 The Metropolitan (2400m) at Royal Randwick three weeks earlier. Both Railings (2005) and Tawqeet (2006) came off a The Metropolitan win before their respective victories in the Caulfield Cup.

The official 2021 Caulfield Cup Final Field & Barriers are set for release on the Wednesday of race week and will be published in full below.

2021 Caulfield Cup Form Guide

The Caulfield Cup form guide details every fact and statistic on the horses in the field you need to know to place a successful bet on the Group 1 spring staying classic.

Details like the Caulfield Cup jockeys, trainers, barriers, weights and lead-up form of the horses are found on the form guide. For more information on how to read and use the Caulfield Cup Form Guide follow the link to our dedicated page. Remember, the Caulfield Cup form guide doesn’t come out until the official field of final acceptances is released the week leading up to Caulfield Cup Day.

Previous Caulfield Cup Results

The open nature of the Caulfield Cup means that many horses have run in the race multiple times and performed well. We offer both a Caulfield Cup results page and a Caulfield Cup winners page, which are designed to help you use those previous Caulfield Cup results to inform your bets on this year’s race.

Caulfield Cup Betting

Caulfield Cup betting is big business and a lot of fun for punters, as it is the first of the major Melbourne Spring Carnival races. Many punters place a Caulfield Cup-Melbourne Cup double on the event, but plenty of action is still seen on exotic bets, with many a punter placing a Caulfield Cup trifecta, Caulfield Cup exacta, Caulfield Cup quinella, or Caulfield Cup First Four bet. If you want to improve your chances, be sure to check out our Caulfield Cup betting section.

Free Bets on Caulfield Cup

One thing overlooked by punters who bet at the TAB is that there are plenty of free bets on the Caulfield Cup that you can pick up from online betting sites! Be sure to check out the bookies we feature on our site, like Ladbrokes.com.au, as they all offer massive free bets to new players.
