Feature Races

Melbourne Cup

Each year, on the first Tuesday in November – well you know what happens next. Melbourne Cup day has its own unchanging place, alongside AFL and NRL Finals Days, the Boxing Day Test or the Australian Open tennis final, as those sporting events are etched into the hearts and minds of so many of our population.

Golden Slipper

Which is the world’s richest race for two year old horses? A clue – it takes place in Australia, in the west of Sydney at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse. The most recent winner was She Will Reign, the most distant from 1957 was Todman.

Cox Plate

For just five years short of a century, Moonee Valley racegoers have gathered, one Saturday in late October, to enjoy one of our iconic horse races – the Cox Plate. It’s named after the man who first had the vision for this course, and to almost quote a film line ‘he did build it and they did come’.

Caulfield Cup

What has the Caulfield Cup going for it? Well plenty. Let’s start with a prize pot of a cool three million dollars, which means it’s one of the world’s richest handicap races.
