Feature Races

Melbourne Cup

It’s hard to find an Australian who hasn’t heard of the Melbourne Cup, the nation’s most important thoroughbred horse race. It happens on first Tuesday of November every year. The field features some of the planet’s finest horses and there’s $6.2 million in prize money up for grabs.

Golden Slipper

Where the Melbourne Cup race is two miles long, the Golden Slipper is a different story. It is a sprint event that can only be entered by two-year-olds and its home is the Rosehill Gardens, which you’ll find in Sydney, Australia.

Cox Plate

In October every year, Melbourne’s Moonee Valley Racecourse hosts the Cox Plate, a thoroughbred race that falls into Group One. Of all the races in the country, it is the fourth wealthiest. There are 3 million bucks in prize money. The Cox Plate’s distance is 2,040 metres (2.04 kilometres).

Caulfield Cup

Of all the handicap of 2,400 metres in the world, the Caulfield Cup is among the most prestigious and wealthiest. It is a Group One Race and it takes place annually at Caulfield Racecourse annually, during October, on the last day of the Caulfield Cup Carnival.
