The Caulfield Cup is run over 2400 metres on the last day of the Caulfield Carnival. It usually attracts a capacity field of 22, with 4 of these being emergencies, leaving a field of 18 starters to face the starter. The race is open to horses 3 years old and above and is run under handicap conditions. This means horse’s with the better credentials carry more weight than those with less, which is designed to try and even up the competitiveness of the field.

Many of the Caulfield Cup runners then go on to compete in the Melbourne cup 10 days later. These days the Caulfield Cup is seen to be the best lead up race for the Melbourne Cup, with punters keeping a close eye on those runners getting home hard at the end of the shorter 2400m compared to the 3200m of the Melbourne Cup. However if you win the Caulfield Cup you would normally receive a weight penalty for the Melbourne Cup, which would then possibly see you disadvantaged in regard to the horse’s that were placed around or near to the winner of the Caulfield Cup but received no such penalty. In recent years there has been a influx of international horses coming to Australia to win the Caulfield Cup.
