Date Change

RACING is set to break with 140 years of tradition by moving the Caulfield Cup to late November.

The 2400m Group 1 handicap, first held in 1879, is a key lead-up race to the Melbourne Cup.

But Racing Victoria is expected to announce an overhaul of its spring dates next week, pushing the Caulfield Cup back to November 28 and staging the Caulfield Guineas on November 21.

The Melbourne Cup would still be run on the first Tuesday in November, while the Cox Plate and Derby Day retain their usual places on the calendar under the proposed changes.

A draft schedule has been presented to Victoria’s key racing clubs. The shift, brought on to avoid a clash between the Caulfield fixtures and an October AFL finals series, could have wide-ranging implications for the spring carnival.

The Caulfield Cup would become the last major race of the carnival.
