Caulfield Track Details

The Caulfield track has a circumference of 2,080 metres with long sweeping turns and the back of the course has a slight rise towards the 1400m starting chute. The straight length is 367 metres and there are three starting chutes at the 1200m, 1400, and 2000m starts.

Caulfield is a track suited to horses that can lead or race up on the pace and any horse who can lead and kick in the straight will be a favourite of punters at Caulfield. The track is big enough for horses to come from behind and win, and while horses have the ability to score from a long way back, it often takes a more than handy horse to do so.

Circumference: 2,080 metres
Straight: 367 metres
Direction: Anti-Clockwise

 

About Caulfield

Caulfield racecourse can be found in Melbourne's south eastern suburbs about 8 kilometres from the Melbourne city centre and is also referred to as "The Heath". Caulfield hosts the major Caulfield Cup carnival in October and can hold a crowd of 50,000+ people quite comfortably.

Racing first began at Caulfield racecourse in 1876 and was administered by the Victoria Amateur Turf Club(VATC). The first meeting actually took place at Dowling Forest racecourse in Ballarat before Caulfield became the permanent home in Melbourne a short time later. It is home to the Melbourne Racing Club.
