CAULFIELD RACECOURSE

Situated 8 KMs from Melbournes Central Business District. Caulfield racecourse is one of Australia's premier racecourses, and is of course home to the Caulfield Cup. It has been around since 1859 and is steeped in tradition. I would definitely suggest a visit.

Key Characteristics

Caulfield is quite a tight left handed racecourse with a circumference of only 2080 Metres. The corners are quite tight and all have a 4-6% banking and with a short run-in of only 360 metres this is a track that favours front runners, with horses held up often having hard luck stories of not being able to get a run. Caulfield also tends to favour the smaller nippier horse rather than the large galloping types which can take a while to get into full speed.
