Caulfield Racecourse

The Mannerism Stakes has been a breath of fresh air for local punters who were waiting for newer and more exciting horse races. The Caulfield Racecourse itself is drenched in history, where the races date back to at least the past 100 years. This is why the Caulfield is known to be the best in the business and the most favoured course in the city of Melbourne.

It is more popularly known as the Health which is situated on the southern side of the Melbourne suburbs. The Caulfield Racecourse is the home of the Melbourne Racing Club – making it the most cherished and sought after venue in the entire country. Whatever the races are at this race course, it is bound to be a ramping success.

The track itself is unique; it is triangularly shaped. Thus, each side of the triangle forms a straight, making a total of three straights. The total circumference of the Caulfield Racecourse is set at a distance of 2,080 metres while the finishing length is measured at 367 metres.

As with most Victoria racetracks, the Caulfield track is run anticlockwise and boasts the beautiful Rupert Clarke Stand to provide uninterrupted and classical views, for spectators watching the races such as the Mannerism Stakes. The totally glassed walls of the stand present a fantastic view to the attendees of the Mannerism Stakes, helping the punters keep a close eye on the proceedings of the race. In the entire season, the Caulfield Racecourse has more than 20 days of horse races throughout the year.

This is why it has been one of the most regularly visited race courses in the entire country, and host to some of the most prestigious races in the nation. The Caulfield Racetrack is home to The Caulfield Cup, the Caulfield Guineas, the Blue Diamond Stakes, the Oakleigh Plate, the Futurity Stakes and now the Mannerism Stakes – spectators are so regular in visiting the stadium that any race held at the Caulfield Race course becomes a rousing success story.

Transportation to and from the Caulfield Racecourse is also very easy as it has its own train station. Running almost every 10 minutes, a train leaves from the Melbourne Central Business District towards the race course. So it is accessible in nature and fans and punters alike do not have any problems in heading towards a nice day of gambling and bookmaking. Making money in the sport of horse racing is not new, and the Mannerism Stakes is not the first race of this magnitude which is being held in Australia.

It’s been going on for years, and the Mannerism Stakes is just a continuation of this passion of horse racing. Then there is the reality that not every race has the ability and the money to match the greatness of the Melbourne Cup but substitutes are as important as the main events.
