2012 Caulfield Cup Race Preview

June 20th, 2012

The Group 1 Caulfield Stakes is set to run at Caulfield Racecourse on Saturday October 13, 2012.

Run over a distance of 2,000 metres, the 2012 Caulfield Stakes is worth $400,000 in prize money.

The 2012 Caulfield Stakes is open to horses of all ages and is run under weight for age conditions.

The race is run as part of Caulfield Guineas Day and shares its program with the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas, Group 1 Toorak Handicap, Group 2 Herbert Power Stakes, Group 2 Schillaci Stakes, and Group 3 Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes.

Descarado is expected to line up once again in the 2012 Caulfield Stakes after winning last year’s race.

The High Chaparral gelding has won five of his 21 race starts and has earned more than $2.6 million in prize money during his career.

Descarado is due to begin his spring campaign in September after having almost a year off following his Caulfield Stakes run.
