Caulfield Cup Field Finalised

Wednesday, 17th October 2012

The Melbourne Racing Club Committee was left yesterday with the unenviable task of having to select the final two runners from 23 horses that had stood their ground for Saturday's Gr1 Caulfield Cup (2400m). With a maximum of 18 in the field (plus 4 emergencies), non-qualified acceptor Maluckyday was automatically left off the 23, with the Committee opting for Alcopop & Moudre to complete the 18. According to theage.com.au, the field is made of the oldest average runners in the race's 134-year history at 6.33. The final field in alphabetical order (including emergencies) is:

  • Alcopop    
  • Americain
