One of the biggest days in the Australian racing calendar has arrived, with the Caulfield Cup – Australia’s other great horseracing cup – set to take place on Saturday at Flemington.
The $5 million contest, dating all the way back to 1879, features seven Group 1 winners among a stacked 18-horse field.
And for the first time in two years, there will be crowds in attendance to roar them home.
The handicap for three-year-olds and older runs over 2400m, or a mile-and-a-half.
It is a massive lead up for Australia’s grandest race, the 3200m Melbourne Cup, 17 days later.
The main event is Race 9 of 10 on the Caulfield card on Saturday, at 5:15pm AEDT.
