There has been a fourth scratching in today’s Caulfield Cup with the race now to be run with a less than capacity field of 16 horses.
Set Square is the fourth horse to be scratched from today’s $3million dollar Caulfield Cup Field after Tarzino was scratched earlier this morning on the back of Fanatic and Big Memory coming out of the race during the week.
The Caulfield Cup will no just have the 16 horses line-up in the race which allows for an 18 horse capacity field.
The last time the race had less than 18 runners was in 2007 when Master O’Reilly won the Cup which like this year had 16 horses start.
