Feature Races

Melbourne Cup

The Melbourne Cup is undoubtedly one of the greatest events on Australia’s sporting calendar. It is known as the race that stops the nation for a good reason. The afternoon of the first Tuesday each November has become an unofficial public holiday – official in some places – where every office and work site pauses so everybody can gather around a television or radio to find out if they’re holding the winning ticket. There are people who only ever bet once a year and it’s always on this race.

Golden Slipper

The Golden Slipper breaks Melbourne’s monopoly on Australia’s greatest horse races, giving one of the year’s most anticipated events to Sydney’s Rosehill Gardens Racecourse. The Golden Slipper is a 1,200-metre sprint for two-year-olds, with a $3.5 million prize purse that makes it the richest two-year-old race in the world.

Cox Plate

The Cox Plate is known as “the race where legends are born”. It has witnessed some of the greatest moments in Australian racing history, such as Phar Lap’s 1931 win that is still fondly remembered today. A more recent legendary moment was last year’s victory by Winx, claiming the title for the second year in the row on its way to being named the world’s greatest horse on turf by Longines. At the same recent award ceremony, Longines also ranked the Cox Plate as the best turf horse race in the world, splitting the honour with the QIPCO Irish Champion Stakes. The Cox Plate is the only Southern Hemisphere race to be part of the prestigious World Series.

Caulfield Cup

The Caulfield Cup is a Group 1 thoroughbred race that is run every October at the Caulfield Racecourse as one of the major opening acts of the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival. It is one of the most prestigious races in Australia, beaten only by the Melbourne Cup. The 2,400-metre race has a prize purse of more than $3 million, which makes it the world’s richest handicap over that distance.
