The Melbourne Cup is a 3,200-metre race that is run at Melbourne’s Flemington Racecourse on the first Tuesday of every November. It is the richest turf race in the world, with a prize purse of $6.2 million. It is Australia’s most prestigious horse race and the country’s most-watched sporting event. It is estimated that more than 90 percent of Australians over the age of 14 watch it each year, cheering for the horse they have chosen or picked out of the office sweep. It has come to be known as the race that stops a nation, which is a huge cry from the running of the first race in 1861 which attracted just 4,000 people. The inaugural race would have been much less spectacular, but at least bar service would have been a lot easier.
The Golden Slipper is a 1,200-metre sprint for two-year-olds that takes place in March each year at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse. It is the richest two-year-old race in the world, offering a prize purse of $3.5 million. It is one of the greatest highlights of the year on Australia’s racing calendar and is easily the most watched race in Sydney.
The Cox Plate is a 2040-metre weight-for-age race for three-year-olds and open class horses. It is held every year in October at Melbourne’s Moonee Valley, neatly sandwiched between the Caulfield Cup and the Melbourne cup as one of the highlights of the Spring Racing Carnival. Its prize purse of $3 million is highly sought and has given rise to some of the greatest moments in Australian sporting history, such as the classic win by Phar Lap in 1931 that still ranks as one of the milestones in Australian racing.
The Caulfield Cup is a 2,400-metre handicap race that takes place each October at Melbourne’s Caulfield Racecourse. Its prize purse of more than $3 million gives it the honour of being the richest handicap race over that distance in the world.
