Horse Racing | Easter Cup Day

Drawing the curtain on the Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival is Easter Cup Day. As the name suggests, the event takes place on the weekend of Easter in late Match/early April at Melbourne’s iconic Caulfield Racecourse. The day boasts a good quality race card headlined by the Group 3 Easter Cup, an Open Handicap over 2000m.

Also programmed on Easter Cup Day is the Group 3 Victoria Handicap, over the shorter distance of 1400m. As it is the final feature program of the autumn in Melbourne, Easter Cup Day tends to generate large attendances.
