The Group 2 Caulfield Sprint is held at Melbourne’s Caulfield Racecourse on the same day as the $3 million Caulfield Cup. The 1000m open handicap offers $200,000 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) that produced Our Boy Malachi (2nd) for his 2016 Caulfield Sprint win.
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 2018 Caulfield Sprint was part of Caulfield Cup Day on Saturday October 20, 2018 .
