Today's Betting Tips
Held on the first Tuesday of November, the Melbourne Cup, run over 3200m, is Australia’s major thoroughbred race, often termed ‘the world’s richest two-mile handicap’ – and recognised as a major sports event around the world. With over $6m in prize money, it’s no surprise that the best horses (or at least their owners) are eager to participate.
This is a sprint for two-year-olds, held in Sydney at Rosehill Gardens. It is recognised as the richest race for this age group across the globe; it’s raced over a swift 1200m and is worth more than $3.5m.
Named after the man who built Moonee Valley racecourse, this Group 1 2040m Thoroughbred race is held on a Saturday in late October. It’s worth over $3 million in prize money, placing it at number four in all our races, and is often called the Weight For Age Championship of Australia.
The Caulfield Cup field is as classy as you would expect, given that it’s one of the world’s richest handicaps with over $3m in prize money, and is a truly prestigious Australian racing occasion. Raced each October over 2400 metres, featuring horses of three years and more, and held on the course it is named after, it’s a fitting centrepiece for the final day of the hugely popular Caulfield Cup Carnival.
