Caulfield Cup

Winners, Past Results and History for the Caulfield Cup

Caulfield Cup

Every year in October Australian horse racing fans look forward to one of the most prestigious horse races at the Caulfield Racecourse, the Caulfield Cup.

During the 2nd war the Caulfield Racecourse was closed and used as an army camp. In 1941, 1942 and 1943 the Caulfield Cup was run at the Flemington Racecourse.

In 1881 there were two Cups held as the race was moved to the spring, with the autumn winner Blue Ribbon and the spring winner Master Avenel. Again in 1943 the race was run twice due to the large number of entries.

The Group 1 event is one of the richest handicap races run over 2400 meters on the final day of the racing carnival.

The Caulfield Cup is hosted by the Melbourne Racing Club with $2,500,000 banked by the winners. The race is the most followed event after the Melbourne Cup. The Group 1 Caulfield Guineas and Thousand Guineas held earlier are among the lead up races, which serve as a good form guide.

Top stayers move on to big time racing in the Melbourne Cup, Group 1 WS Cox Plate and AAMI Victoria Derby. Many horses seek to score a Caulfield Cup/Melbourne Cup double during the spring carnival while punters look to make the most of the world's most prestigious races. Some horses may make their way to the Caulfield Cup from the Group 1 Turnbull Stakes. Prior to lifting the 2011 Caulfield Cup, Southern Speed ran fourth in the Turnbull Stakes.

Viewed, winner in 2009, won the Melbourne Cup the previous year. Other high class runners to win the Caulfield Cup include Northerly in 2002, Mannerism in 1992, and Elvstroem in 2004. The winner has an open invitation for the Melbourne Cup, which is why the race has top notch stayers fight it out over the 2400 meter distance.

The Caulfield Cup is open to international competition since 1998, with British bred Taufan's Melody obliging punters the very same year followed by All The Good a decade later in 2008. 18 runners come under the starter's orders in the Caulfield Cup, which is decided by a ballot system. The prize money, wins, and placing in lead up races are among the major factors that determine the eligibility of a horse.

Automatic entry may be awarded to winners of the Group 2 Herbert Power Stakes and the Listed Mornington Cup. Other races for which the Caulfield Cup is a good form guide are the Wakeful Stakes, Moonee Valley Cup, and Queen Elizabeth Stakes.

Important spring races in Sydney and Melbourne that are likely to produce Caulfield Cup runners are the Autumn Classic, Herbert Power Stakes, Listed Cranbourne Cup, Spring Champion Stakes and the Craven Plate.

2013 Caulfield Cup

As they settled, Julienas and Mr O'Ceirin led the way, while Fawkner raced about midfield on the fence. Julienas and Mr O'Ceirin were leaders until the 800 metre mark when Jet Away flew around the the field to take up the running, and Fawkner was moved off the fence, looking for room. Jet Away led into the straight but Fawkner got clear and showed blistering speed to hit the front, while Dear Demi also enjoyed a good run home. Fawkner was too strong however, winning by a length over Dandino who came from nowhere to take second while Dear Demi stuck with it to take third.
