The Caulfield Cup final field has been announced for the $3 million race on Saturday 15th October 2016. This Group 1 race is one of the most difficult 2400 meter handicaps in Australia.
There is a total of 20 acceptances for the race. Two gallopers, De Little Engine and Vengeur Masque have been declared as emergencies due to the smaller than normal Caulfield Cup field.
All eyes are on Jameka, the mare who won the Victoria Oaks last year. In fact, she is a dominant favourite for the race, currently at $3.50. She is in front of Darren Weir’s Real Love, who comes in at $9. Sir John Hawkwood, who recently won a Group 1, is a $21 chance.
