Looking for early info on this year’s Caulfield Sprint? The experts at Neds have put together everything you need to know before this year’s race.
Run over 1,000 metres, the Caulfield Sprint is a Group 2 race taking place at Caulfield Racecourse in mid to late October as part of the bumper Caulfield Cup Day card each spring. With a $300,000 prize purse, the short distance handicap event attracts some of Australia’s best sprinters.
Starting out as a Listed Race, this race was upgraded to Group 3 status in 1993, followed by Group 2 status in 1999.
This race serves as a good lead up for the Darley Classic or the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes for three-year-olds held at Flemington on Derby Day. Sepoy (2011) was the last horse to complete the Caulfield Sprint – Coolmore Stud Stakes double.
