Feature Races

Melbourne Cup

Known as the richest two-mile thoroughbred handicap in the world, the famous, almost legendary, Melbourne Cup is competed for over 3200 metres at Flemington on the first Tuesday in November. With more than $6m available in prize money, it’s unsurprising that it draws interest, and entries, from far beyond Australia’s shores.

Golden Slipper

The Golden Slipper field is comprised of 16 two-year-olds, and the race takes place at Sydney’s Rosehill Gardens course. Recognised worldwide as the richest age group race, it’s a genuine sprint over 1200 metres, and for prize money of around $3.5 million.

Cox Plate

William Samuel Cox is the man to thank for this great annual event on the Australian racing calendar. Not only was he responsible for their being a Moonee Valley racetrack, but the event, first run 95 years ago, was named in his honour. The Cox Plate field is comprised of 14 horses, three years or older, plus four emergencies. Held on a Saturday in late October, it is a Group 1 Thoroughbred event, raced over 2040m, and offering over $3 million in prize money. It’s known by many punters and insiders as the Weight For Age Championship of Australia and is also a very popular destination for the best of New Zealand’s horses.

Caulfield Cup

Offering more than a whopping $3m in prize money, the Caulfield Cup field is gathered to contest what is accepted as one of the richest handicap races anywhere in the racing world. Contested over 2400 metres each October, it features horses who are aged three years and more. It’s held at Caulfield Racecourse and serves as a wonderful centrepiece for the final day of their terrific Caulfield Cup Carnival event.
