When is the Caulfield Cup?
One of the key events during the Spring on the Australian racing calendar is the Caulfield Cup. The Group 1 thoroughbred race was first held in 1879 and has become one of the richest races in Australian racing.
The Caulfield Cup is traditionally held on a Saturday in mid-October, allowing momentum to build within the racing calendar towards the Melbourne Cup.
In 2020, the Caulfield Cup will take place on Saturday 17th October and despite no fans being able to attend the race due to COVID 19 restrictions, there will be plenty of drama and intrigue surrounding the race – not least with over 5 million dollars in the prize pot.
