Caulfield Racecourse History

Known as “The Heath”, Caulfield is one of the more popular racecourses in Australia. Developed in 1859, Caulfield has since become a major track recognised around the world.

Caulfield is a tight-turning track which comprises of three straights. That’s unique in Australian racing as the triangular shape isn’t used very often, especially in Melbourne.

Much like Flemington, the land is Crown Owned and it’s run by the Melbourne Racing Club, to which Caulfield is its home base.

The track had a major reconstruction following the 1995 Caulfield Cup. It was reopened in 1996 after being widened by 30m.

It’s the only track in Australia to host a Group 1 on Sunday (Underwood Stakes).
