Changes to Caulfield Cup handicapping

In 2017 Racing Victoria announced a change in policy around the re-handicapping of the Caulfield Cup winner in the Melbourne Cup.

The Racing Victoria handicapping panel announced that the winner of the Caulfield Cup will not be re-handicapped in the Melbourne Cup if they have already been allocated 56kg or more.

Furthermore, should the winner of the Caulfield Cup be weighted at less than 56kg in the Melbourne Cup, the quantum of any penalty issued will not take the weight of the horse higher than 56kg on the first Tuesday in November.

Facts about Caulfield Cup Weights

metric weights were introduced in 1972 and since then only 6 horses have carried 56.5kg to victory.

Hartnell is the top weight with 58kg, and only three horses in history have won carrying that amount, or more.
