The final Autumn Classic field is traditionally released on the Wednesday prior to the race and features a host of smart three-year-old staying types heading towards a possible back-up run in the Australian Guineas over the Flemington mile the week after, or the Australian Cup (2000m) a fortnight later against the older horses. Super Cool (2013) was the last three-year-old to do the Caulfield Autumn Classic – Australian Cup double.

Many three-year-olds in the Autumn Classic field have had a previous lead-up in the Group 2 Autumn Stakes (1400m) at the track a fortnight earlier.

Caulfield Autumn Classic History

First won by Lord Gavin in 1957, the Caulfield Autumn Classic has been an 1800m event since 1987. Starting out as a Principal race until 1978, the event became a Listed race in 1979 until 1989 when it was elevated to Group 3 status. In 1991 the Autumn Classic finally became a Group 2 race.

The race has also had several name changes starting with the Stanley Plate and then becoming the Caulfield Autumn Classic, Tattersalls Classic, AAMI Classic, Shannons Classic, Pol Roger Stakes and The Yalumba 160. However it is generally still referred to as the Autumn Classic.

Since 1988, the fastest winning time was recorded by 1 minute 47.3 seconds by Waikikamukau in 1994. The slowest time was by Mr Danamite in 1988 with 1 minute 55.9 seconds.
