Caulfield Cup Nominations & Acceptances

There is a long process involved in determining the final 2014 Caulfield Cup field. The process begins a few months away from the race itself.

2017 Caulfield Cup field

The 2017 Caulfield Cup field will be officially released a week prior to jump, to much anticipation. As was widely expected, the 2017 Caulfield Cup will do a great service to the prestigious history of the race. There were some fantastic acceptors in a star-studded capacity Caulfield Cup field in 2015, including Protectionist who won the previous year’s Melbourne Cup, Rising Romance who was 2014’s Australian Oaks winner and runner up in the Caulfield Cup, subsequent champion Mongolian Khan who completed the NZ Derby / Australian Derby double, and Snow Sky who won the Hardwicke Stakes at Royal Ascot.

The 2017 Caulfield Cup field, with weights, handicap ratings and jockeys will be published below when it is released:
