Next weekend, 12th October ’13 at Caulfield Racecourse we have Beck Caulfield Guineas Day. Caulfield Guineas Day has been considered one of the finest racing events in Australia where top trainers with their fresh spring carnival horses battle it out across multiple group one races to achieve various title accolades, with one million dollars on offer for the Caulfield Guineas 1,600m race itself, there are always top names on show. The Caulfield Guineas is a Group 1 race for 3 year olds, run over 1600 metres at set weights.

The Caulfield Guineas is run on the second Saturday of October each year and has been run every year since its inception in 1881. It is the premier mile classical race of Victoria which is particularly famous for being considered as the stallion making event. Winners of races from all over the world always try to breed immortality by getting the title of Caulfield Guineas Day Champion in which the most impressive list of horses are present; Lonhro, Manikato, Vain and Redoute’s Choice.

As one of the highlights of the racing calendar, Caulfield Guineas Day involves the Group one $400,000 race named the “Cathay Pacific Caulfield Stakes” (2,000 meters), the $400,000 David Jones Toorak Handicap (1,600 meters) and the ultimate leg of New Zealand’s Bloodstock Spring WFA Championship.

Caulfield Guineas Day has offered a number of memorable moments throughout Australian racing involving the amazing battle of Testa Rossa and Redoute’s Choice in the 1999 during the spring season, God’s Own incredible win in 2005 event, the blistering performance of Hussler to get victory in 2007, Helmet just lasting to hold of a strong finishing Manawanui, and the victory of All Too Hard over the famous Pierro in the previous year.
