Often referred to as the “race that stops the nation” the Melbourne Cup is recognised as the pre-eminent thoroughbred race in Australia for three-year-olds and above. The cup is held at Flemington Racecourse. Renowned as the richest “two-mile” handicap internationally, the race attracts top thoroughbred horses from all over the world. With $6.2 million in prize money up for grabs, it’s the most prestigious race of the Melbourne Cup Carnival.

Golden Slipper

Held at the Rosehill Gardens Racecourse in Sydney, the Golden Slipper is worth $3.5 million in prize money and is open to two-year-olds. A sprint race, the Golden Slipper is run over a distance of 1200 metres. Known as the richest two-year-old race to be held internationally, access into the Golden Slipper field is highly sought after. There is automatic entry allocated to horses that have won races including Skyline Stakes, Magic Night Stakes, Pago Pago Stakes, Todman Stakes, Sweet Embrace Stakes, Silver Slipper Stakes and the Reisling Stakes.

A Group 1 thoroughbred race, the Cox Plate is held at the Moonee Valley Racecourse. The race is run in October annually and covers a distance of 2040 metres. With $3 million in prize money available, the Cox Plate is renowned for attracting some of the best weight-for-age horses to be found in Australia and New Zealand. The fourth richest horse race in Australia, the Cox Plate receives close to 200 nominations each year, as one of the most coveted horse racing titles.
