Feature Races

Melbourne Cup

The Melbourne Cup is the race that stops a nation. On the first Tuesday in November everybody pauses to watch what is widely regarded as Australia’s greatest annual sporting event. If a person only has one bet a year, it will be on this race.

Golden Slipper

Melbourne lays claim to three of Australia’s four greatest horse races, but Sydney has a firm hold on the fourth: the Golden Slipper. It’s a sprint race held over 1,200 metres at the picturesque Rosehill Gardens Racecourse. The $3.5 million prize purse makes it the richest two-year-old race in the world.

Cox Plate

The Cox Plate has been recognised as world’s best turf race by the Longines World’s Best Horse Race Awards in London, sharing the title with the QIPCO Irish Champion Stakes, while it is the only race in the Southern Hemisphere to have the honour of joining the prestigious World Series. It is a Group 1 thoroughbred race that takes place each year at Melbourne’s Moonee Valley, appearing on the racing calendar between the Caulfield Cup and Melbourne Cup.

Caulfield Cup

The Caulfield Cup result stands only slightly behind the Melbourne Cup as Australia’s most-watched horse racing event. Its prize purse of more than $3 million also makes it the world’s richest handicap races over a distance of 2,400 metres.
