Horse Racing | CF Orr Stakes Day

Held in the opening stages of the Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival is CF Orr Stakes Day, an event which boasts a quality day of racing at Caulfield Racecourse. The race card includes seven Group races, headlined by the $400,000 CF Orr Stakes, a Group 1 weight-for-age event run over 1400m. The programme is an important part of the Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival as horses prepare for bigger races later in the season.

Other feature races on CF Orr Stakes Day include the Autumn Stakes, Rubiton Stakes, Carlyon Cup, Geoffrey Belmaine Stakes, Boronia Stakes and two instalments of the Blue Diamond Prelude – one for fillies and the other for colts and geldings. The event is held annually in mid-February and is widely regarded of the second biggest day of the carnival, with only Blue Diamond Stakes Day eclipsing it. In excess of $1.5m in prize money is on offer on the day, with all age groups catered for.
