Feature Races

Melbourne Cup

The significance of the Melbourne Cup in Australian culture cannot possibly be overstated. It is estimated that more than 90 percent of people over the age of 14 watch the race each year on the first Tuesday in November. Australians spend more than $455 million on the day, $68 million of it on gambling, $53 million on fashion, and almost $170 million on food and alcohol.

Golden Slipper

The Golden Slipper is the richest race in the world for two-year-olds, with a prize purse of $3.5 million. It’s also the greatest event on Sydney’s racing calendar, with the 1,200-metre sprint taking place every year at the beautiful Rosehill Gardens Racecourse.

Cox Plate

The Cox Plate is widely known as the greatest two minutes in sport. It is the only horse race in the Southern Hemisphere to be part of the prestigious World Cup, placing it in the same league as such iconic events as Britain’s King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Diamond Stakes and America’s Arlington Million. Recently the Longines World’s Best Horse Race Awards, which produces a list of the planet’s greatest equine events, declared the Cox Plate the best turf horse race in the world. The title was split between the Cox Plate and the QIPCO Irish Champion Stakes.

Caulfield Cup

The Caulfield Cup is the world’s richest 2,400-metre handicap race, with a prize purse of more than $3 million. It occurs at Caulfield Racecourse in October each year as one of the earlier events in the Spring Racing Carnival. The Caulfield Cup result delivers the second most prestigious title in Australian horse racing, coming in just behind the Melbourne Cup.
