Caulfield Cup 2019

Saturday October 19, 2019

Ladbrokes Tip: Caulfield Cup winners often back-up in the Melbourne Cup over the two miles at Flemington

One of the two major Cups held in Melbourne each Spring Carnival, the Caulfield Cup takes place annually at Caulfield Racecourse in mid – late October and is Australia’s leading mile and a half handicap. Run over 2400m it attracts the season’s top stayers, many of which will progress onto a shot at the ‘race that stops a nation’ in the Melbourne Cup at Flemington on the first Tuesday of November.

The Caulfield Cup – Melbourne Cup double has been achieved by 11 horses in the same year, most recently the gun mare Ethereal (2001).

The Caulfield Cup is currently a handicap event, although there is discussions to turn the classic into a weight-for-age event. The current Caulfield Cup prize money is set at a lucrative $5 million making it one of the richest races on the Australian racing calendar.

Internationally-trained stayers (outside of Australia and New Zealand) have been competing in the Caulfield Cup race since 1998 with five successful to date: Taufan’s Melody (1998), All The Good (2008), Dunaden (2012), the ill-fated Japanese raider Admire Rakti (2014) and most recently Best Solution (2018).

The Caulfield Cup training record is held by the late, great Bart Cummings who prepared seven Caulfield Cup winners including the dual champion Ming Dynasty who won on non-successive years (1977 and 1980).

There are currently three races that offer the winner a Caulfield Cup ballot exemption: the Group 1 Toorak Handicap (1600m) and Herbert Power Stakes (2400m) both run at Caulfield the week prior, and the Listed Mornington Cup (2400m) held in March.

Caulfield Cup Day in Melbourne is now also challenged for the punters’ attention by Sydney’s richest race day – The Everest Day – held on the same date at Royal Randwick and featuring the world’s richest turf race – the $14 million The Everest – as well as the $1.3 million The Kosciuszko for NSW country-trained horses.

The next edition of the Caulfield Cup runs on Saturday October 19, 2019.

Roughies were back in favour in the shock 2017 Caulfield Cup results with the winner Boom Time winning at a blowout price of $51!

Caulfield Cup Field

The Caulfield Cup field is released on the Tuesday before the race runs on a Saturday in mid-October each year and has a capacity of 18 starters plus four emergencies. Aside from the Melbourne Cup and partially the Cox Plate, the Caulfield Cup Field earns some of the most attention during the whole calendar year of racing.

Run under handicap conditions the Caulfield Cup race is open to horses aged three years and older and now attracts a truly international line-up with many imports and international raiders in the mix each season. The first hint of the final field happens when Caulfield Cup nominations are taken at the start of August, early entries often exceeding 200 horses.

Spring stayers may come into the Caulfield Cup field via a number of various lead-up races including the Group 1 Turnbull Stakes (2000m) run a fortnight prior at Flemington and the Group 2 Herbert Power Stakes (2400m). The Herbert Power Stakes runs over the same track / distance as the Caulfield Cup the weekend before and Boom Time (4th in 2017) was the last Caulfield Cup winner to come out of that lead-up.
