History: The Caulfield Classic was previously run as the Norman Robinson Stakes and is held on Caulfield Cup Day. Run as a handicap until 1990, now run under set weight conditions. A prizemoney boost in 2014 took the purse to $750,000 with a $250,000 bonus to the winner of the Caulfield Guineas or Thousand Guineas if they are able to run the double. Along with the Blue Sapphire, these races make the Caulfield Cup Carnival a very attractive prospect for Australia's elite young horses.
Past Winners: not a race to attract many superstars to date, but that is likely to change with the alteration to conditions and prizemoney in 2014. Nothin' Leica Dane won this race in 1995 before going on to place second in the Melbourne Cup of that year.
Time: Track record for 2000m Caulfield is 2:00.38 (Tremezzo)
Track Bias, Barriers: The rail is often out 5 or 6 metres on Caulfield Cup day following two days of racing at this track, this makes it difficult for runners to make up a lot of ground from the back of the field and inside barriers are usually an advantage.
Race Statistics: not usually a race for the fillies, although they have recorded minor placings, the majority of winners are colts or geldings carrying 55-57kgs.
