Read more about the History of the Caulfield Cup
Founded in 1859, Caulfield Racecourse hosts around 20 race days every year, headlined by the Caulfield Cup.
The track is commonly known at ‘The Heath’ following the early days in which jockeys would ride through rough bush, heath and sand hills during races.
The name is now renowned across Australia and New Zealand for representing Caulfield’s superb racing and entertainment venue.
The first Caulfield Cup was run in the autumn of 1879, and was transferred to the spring in 1881.
The track was closed during the war and was used as an army camp, with the Caulfield Cup being run at Flemington.
Following the 1995 Caulfield Cup, the course underwent a significant reconstruction and reopened in 1996. The track’s circumference was widened to 30m and lengthened inside the home straight by around 43m.
Caulfield Racecourse Track Description
Racing is contested in a left-handed direction at Caulfield and features long, sweeping turns. As a result, there can be a slight draw bias for those drawn low over distances further than seven-furlongs.
The course has a total circumference of 2080m including a home straight of just over 360m.
In terms of the Caulfield Cup, records throughout the 21st century have showcased a slight advantage for single digit stalls due to the course’s swift anti-clockwise bends.
Favourable positioning at Caulfield can be crucial to a contenders’ winning claims, as the setting has a short home straight of less than 400m. It means hold-up performers routinely encounter trouble in-running, resulting in many hard-luck stories.
Over shorter distances, the emphasis is placed on speed as horses seek a prominent position before turning for home. A below-par start in Caulfield’s sprint races usually results in a poor finishing position for horses, showcasing the need for sharp early pace.
