Caulfield Cup Day is the climax of Caulfield’s slice of the Spring Racing Carnival. The day’s feature – the G1 Caulfield Cup – is not only the world’s richest 2400m handicap but also an important lead-up race to the prestigious G1 Melbourne Cup held in November.

Moonga Stakes (G3 1400m for 4yo+)
Caulfield Cup (G1 2400m handicap for 3yo+)
Tristarc Stakes (G2 1400m for 4yo+ fillies and mares)

British Champions Day (6 races – 1st race starts 8:20pm, 17 October)
The eyes of the racing world will turn to Ascot on Saturday evening as some of Europe’s best horses and jockeys gather for the richest meeting on English soil – British Champions Day. The simulcast features five end-of-season championship races for horses of different categories and Europe’s richest handicap over a mile.

British Champions Long Distance Cup (G2 3190m for 3yo+)
British Champions Sprint Stakes (G1 1200m for 3yo+)
British Champions Fillies & Mares Stakes (G1 2392m for 3yo+ fillies and mares)

Shuka Sho (2:40pm, 18 October)
The G1 Shuka Sho from Kyoto Racecourse in Japan will be simulcast for betting during the Sha Tin race meeting on Sunday, 18 October (2.40pm, Hong Kong time).

The Shuka Sho (G1 2000m for 3yo fillies) was introduced in 1996 to replace the Queen Elizabeth II Commemorative Cup as the final leg of Japan’s Fillies’ Triple Crown. The unbeaten Daring Tact will bid to become only the sixth filly in history to claim the title having won the Oka Sho and Yushun Himba in the Spring.

Final declarations with barriers allocated for the Shuka Sho will be available on the afternoon of Friday, 16 October.
