Caulfield Autumn Classic 2019

Saturday February 23, 2019

Ladbrokes Tip: The Caulfield Autumn Classic has proved a nice form guide for the Australian Cup in recent years

The Caulfield Autumn Classic is a key support race run on Ladbrokes Blue Diamond Stakes Day at Caulfield Racecourse on a Saturday in late February during the annual Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival.

Held on the same day as three Group 1 races including the coveted Blue Diamond Stakes, the event is a Group 2 race run over 1800m for young staying types. There are no sex or class restrictions, but the Autumn Classic is run under set weights conditions and is open only to three-year-olds.

Offering $200,000 in total prize money the Caulfield Autumn Classic winner receives $120,000 in stakes for connections.

Over the years the race has proved a nice form guide heading into bigger Melbourne features including the Group 1 Australian Cup (2000m) at Flemington in March with Super Cool (2013) the last to do the double.

This autumn’s edition of the Caulfield Autumn Classic takes place on Saturday February 23, 2019 .
