Caulfield Cup 2018

Stella Artois Caulfield Cup Day 2018

Saturday 20th October, 2018.

This year, we proudly welcome Stella Artois as the new naming rights sponsor of the Caulfield Cup Carnival’s flagship event, the $5.15 million Group 1 Stella Artois Caulfield Cup.

Known as the world’s richest turf handicap over 2400 metres, this classic contest, now in its 141st year of running, is one of Australia’s most sought-after races where winning owners get to take home the iconic $155,000 9-carat gold trophy.

The Stella Artois Caulfield Cup regularly attracts a global field since the first internationally-trained horse, Taufan’s Melody won the race in 1998, joining other Cup heroes at Caulfield including Might and Power, Northerly and Tulloch among many others.

Racegoers will experience a touch of Malibu along with an abundance of colour, style, hospitality and entertainment trackside starting with the glamourous David Jones Fashion Stable which features twice daily designer runway shows showcasing the latest spring racewear trends and new “click & collect” technology, Catalina Sounds Fashion Illustrators, and the Moët & Chandon Bar. The iconic Style Stakes custom-made photography studios return with touch up stations to refresh your race day look.*

ARIA-Award winning Australian punk rockers, The Living End will be rocking it out at the Carlton Draught Live Stage to close the Stella Artois Caulfield Cup Carnival.

*Winners of the Style Stakes will take be announced in the David Jones Fashion Stable following Race 6.
