Caulfield Racecourse is located in Melbourne’s south-east just 9km from the capital and is operated by the Melbourne Racing Club. Caulfield is one of Australia’s most famous tracks able to hold a crowd of 50,000+. The Caulfield track is host to the prestigious Caulfield Cup Carnival in October.
In the early 2000s, the Melbourne Racing Club (MRC) and the Victorian Racing Industry funded a redevelopment of the Caulfield Racecourse with major upgrades to the track and all facilities. As part of the redevelopment, the MRC also built a second turf track at Sandown. Today the MRC organises over 70 race meetings a year at Caulfield, Sandown and Mornington racecourses.
