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 $14 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 latest edition of the Caulfield Cup 2019 runs on Saturday October 19, 2019 .

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 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 2019 Caulfield Cup Final Field & Barriers are set for release on the Wednesday of race week and will be published in full below.

Visit our Caulfield Cup Field page to stay up-to-date with all the latest on the possible Caulfield Cup horses this spring.
