Feature Races

Melbourne Cup

If the whole country seems to be coming to a halt, if it’s the first Tuesday in the month of November, then it all makes sense. It’s Melbourne Cup day! This amazing race, run over 3200m, is undoubtedly one of our country’s major thoroughbred races. Indeed, it has also frequently been described as ‘the world’s richest two-mile handicap’. It draws interest, and entries, from Europe and beyond – although horses from there who don’t take advantage of any of the races leading up to the event don’t tend to perform in a stellar way during the Cup itself. That’s a shame for them, with more than six million dollars up for grabs!

Golden Slipper

The Golden Slipper field is gathered together to contest the richest race for the 2-year-old age group anywhere. This iconic Australian event has its home in the west of Sydney at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse. Raced, very quickly, over 1200m, it has a prize pot of around $3.5m. Todman was the first winner in 1957; sixty years later it was the turn of She Will Reign.

Cox Plate

One of our country’s finest horse races, the Cox Plate is approaching its century. Further back than that, W S Cox created Moonee Valley Racecourse, where this race takes place, and the event was named in his honour. The Cox Plate field contests what is a Group 1 2040m Thoroughbred race, and it is held on a late October Saturday. The pot is over $3 million, which earns it a place at number four in all our race prize funds. It’s generally accepted to be Australia’s Weight For Age Championship, and as you hear the thunder of hooves crossing the Tasman, you’ll know it’s a race of choice for many from New Zealand. In the early 1950s, Rising Fast won it three times, and also the Caulfield and Melbourne Cups in one unforgettable season.

Caulfield Cup

If you were looking to attend Australia’s top racing occasions, then the Caulfield Cup would be really high on your list. It features a class field for every running, which isn’t surprising considering that it has its place as one of the world’s richest handicaps. $3m in prize money will get the attention of owners everywhere. The Caulfield Cup field assembles every October to contest 2400 metres, and each participating horse will be three years old or more. The venue is the course of the same name, although many locals refer to it affectionately as ‘The Heath’. This race is the centrepiece of the final day of the terrifically popular Caulfield Cup Carnival.
