The Caulfield Cup is a Group 1 open handicap race that takes place in October each year at Caulfield racecourse in Melbourne, Victoria. The race is run over a distance of 2400 metres and worth $5,000,000 in prize money. The 2019 Caulfield Cup was won by Mer De Glace from Vow And Declare with Mirage Dancer third.
The Caulfield Cup is become one of the world's richest handicap races over a distance of 2400 metres and is Australia's second biggest Cup race after the Melbourne Cup. The race itself is the premier race of the three day Caulfield racing carnival, with the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas and Group 1 Thousand Guineas taking place on the preceding Saturday.
The Caulfield racing carnival in October, especially the Caulfield Cup, signals the beginning of big time racing in Melbourne, as spring racing only gets bigger and better with the running of the Group 1 WS Cox Plate one week later and the AAMI Victoria Derby the following week.

The Caulfield Cup also combines with the Melbourne Cup to form the major Cup's double of the Melbourne spring racing carnival in Victoria. Bookmakers provide doubles betting markets well in advance of the Caulfield Cup and punters outlay huge amounts of money trying to find the winner of both races, hoping to land a big multiple double result.
The Caulfield Cup has been won by some of our very best thoroughbreds including the brilliant Might and Power who streeted the field to win as he liked in 1997, and the great Western Australian galloper Northerly who carried 58 kilograms to win in 2002.
Verry Elleegant (2020) captured the Group 1 Turnbull Stakes over 2000m at Flemington before scoring a stylish victory in this event for Sydney trainer Chris Waller.
Recent Caulfield Cup winners include Mer De Glace (2019) and Best Solutions (2018).
The Caulfield Cup is an important lead up race to the Melbourne Cup and often those horses who win or run well over the 2400 metres of the Caulfield race will feature prominently when they contest the great race on the first Tuesday in November.
In recent times four horses have won the big Cup's double including Let's Elope (1991), Doriemus (1995), Might and Power (1997) and Ethereal (2001). It pays to keep a keen eye on those horses contesting the Caulfield Cup as there may be a potential Melbourne Cup winner running around.
Chris Waller mare Dear Demi (3rd in 2013) and ran third in the Group 1 Mackinnon Stakes at Flemington on Derby Day following her third placing in the Caulfield Cup.
Alcopop (2nd in 2012) managed to win the Mackinnon Stakes at his next start and Jakkalberry (13th in 2012) flashed home to run third in the Melbourne Cup at Flemington.
Caulfield Cup runner-up Green Moon (2nd in 2011) won the Melbourne Cup the following year, while while Viewed (2009) won this race after taking out the Melbourne Cup the previous spring.
