Feature Races

Melbourne Cup

There’s a special change that comes over Australia on the first Tuesday of every November when all eyes in the nation turn towards Flemington Racecourse for the running of the Melbourne Cup. Nothing else compares with it. Huge swathes of people who never watch a horse run, let alone consider betting on it, gather in groups around television sets to see if the Melbourne Cup tip they accepted will turn out to be the right one.

Golden Slipper

The Golden Slipper is by far the greatest event on Sydney’s horse racing calendar. The 1,200-metre sprint takes place at the picturesque Rosehill Gardens Racecourse and is the world’s richest race for two-year-olds. The $3.5 million prize purse makes it one of the most eagerly sought titles in Australian racing.

Cox Plate

The Cox Plate does not gain the same media attention in Australia as other great races such as the Melbourne Cup, which is a shame. The rest of the world certainly recognises its significance. It is the only race in the Southern Hemisphere that’s been given the honour of joining the prestigious World Series, while this year the Longines World’s Best Horse Race Awards in London named the Cox Plate the best turf horse race in the world (a title it shares with the QIPCO Irish Champion Stakes).

Caulfield Cup

In terms of prominence, the Caulfield Cup comes in just behind the Melbourne Cup, taking the title as Australia’s second-most prestigious horse race. It’s something of a curtain-raiser for the Spring Racing Carnival, occurring in October as a signal for everybody with a passion for horse racing to shift their focus to Melbourne and not look away again until the winners of both cups have been decided. Eleven champion horses have managed to take home the Caulfield Cup and the Melbourne Cup in the same year.
