On first glance, you may not notice anything unusual about the field for the Group 2 Rubiton Stakes which place at Caulfield this Saturday.
Look a little closer though and you’ll notice a strange quirk with every runner in the 8 horse field being drawn in saddlecloth order for the 1100m race.
With barriers drawn at random, this freak occurrence almost never happens. In fact the odds of this happening in a 8 horse field is 1 in 40,320.
You may be wondering what the chances are of these runners now finishing in racebook order, the odds of that are one in 1,625,702,400!
