Each year the Caulfield Cup is the opening leg of the Melbourne Spring Carnival’s major triple.

The trio of top races continues with Australasia’s weight-for-age championship the Cox Plate at Moonee Valley the following week, before concluding with the ‘race that stops a nation’ the iconic Melbourne Cup at Flemington on the first Tuesday of November.

Together the Caulfield Cup and the Melbourne Cup 2016 make up what is known as the spring cups double, which is a highlight in Melbourne cup news.

It is a unique feat for a horse to score the Caulfield Cup – Melbourne Cup wins in a single season with 11 champions having done it to date with Poseidon (1906), The Trump (1937), Rivette (1939), Rising Fast (1954), Even Stevens (1962), Galilee (1966), Gurner’s Lane (1982), Let’s Elope (1991), Doriemus (1995), Might and Power (1997) and Ethereal (2001).

Many, many others have attempted it however especially as the Caulfield Cup winner is exempt from Melbourne Cup ballot each year.

The 2016 Caulfield Cup is also the headline race of the smaller Caulfield Cup Carnival.

Attracting record bets each year the Caulfield Cup is currently worth $3 million in prize money, a figure that is likely to rise by the 2016 Caulfield Cup which will be the 136th edition of the classic.

Already the Caulfield Cup is the richest mile-and-a-half handicap in the world, and a prize money increase by 2016 will ensure this fact remains true.

2016 Caulfield Cup Field

The 2016 Caulfield Cup field will first begin to take shape when Racing Victoria takes nominations for the time-honoured showdown in August of 2016.
