Caulfield Racecourse History

Originally opened in 1859, the Caulfield Racecourse is one of the longest running courses in Australia.

In 1876, the first meeting was held at this course by the Melbourne Racing Club.

Just 3 years later, the Caulfield Cup was formed and has been a stable in the Australian Racing Calendar ever since. After the 1995 Caulfield Cup, the course was closed for major reconstruction of the track and later opened in April, 1996.

Nine years later, the course turf was re-laid after the Spring Carnival.
