The Caulfield Stakes is a Group l staying race and is the one of the premier races of the Melbourne Spring Carnival. It is held at Caulfield racecourse each year over 2000m.
The race is at Group l level and boasts a total prize pool of $400,000 and is at WFA.
The 2017 Caulfield Stakes will be run on Saturday the 14th of October, 2017 at Caulfield racecourse.
The Caulfield Stakes is the ideal launching pad into the Caulfield Cup and Cox Plate, as we saw in 2015 when Mongolian Khan ran third in the race before bolting up in the Caulfield Cup seven days later.
An interesting fact is that since the turn of the century, only four last start winners have saluted, with the last one being Ocean Park in 2012, before going on to win the Cox Plate.
