Caulfield Racecourse is regarded as one of the best thoroughbred racing and events venues in Australia.
Steeped in history, racing was first held at the Caulfield Racecourse site in 1859. In Caulfield's early days of racing, jockeys rode through rough bush, heath, and sand hills, earning Caulfield its affectionate nickname 'The Heath'. The Heath at Caulfield Racecourse now fondly carries this nickname.
The pinnacle of racing at Caulfield is the Stella Artois Caulfield Cup Carnival in Spring, comprising three days of outstanding racing through Ladbrokes Caulfield Guineas Day, Catanach's Jewellers Blue Sapphire Stakes Day and culminating in the Stella Artois Caulfield Cup Day, featuring one of the world's great 2400m handicap races.
Caulfield boast a number of great facilities for its members as well as the general public. The magnificent Rupert Clarke grandstand is glassed in for added comfort during winter and summer offering uninterrupted views of the mounting yard, home turn and winning post. In addition to the racing at Caulfield, the Racecourse plays home to many exciting events throughout the year, from food and wine events, to entertainment for the whole family.
