Feature Race, Barriers Info & Starting Positions:
Racing at Cranbourne dates back to 1867. The feature race of the year is the Cranbourne Cup, which is held at the beginning of the Spring Racing Carnival in October.
Unusual in that it has a very long chute in which all starts from 1200 to 1600 are positioned and the 1000 start is just at the point where the chute meets the course proper. All horses have a long first straight to get positioned for the single corner before the final long straight to finish. Races 2025 to 2080 start in another short chute at the start of the final straight and run to a corner that takes them round to where the long chute joins up and then they finish the same as the shorter races. Generally pretty fair to all runners.
