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.
