The Group 1 Yalumba Stakes is set to run at Caulfield Racecourse on Saturday October 13, 2012.

Run over a distance of 2,000 metres, the 2012 Yalumba Stakes is worth $400,000 in prize money.

The 2012 Yalumba Stakes is open to horses of all ages and is run under weight for age conditions.

The Yalumba Stakes 2012 has been renamed the Caulfield Stakes since 2011.

Run as part of Caulfield Guineas Day, the 2012 Yalumba Stakes shares its program with the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas, Group 1 Toorak Handicap, Group 2 Herbert Power Stakes, Group 2 Schillaci Stakes, and Group 3 Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes.

Last year’s Yalumba Stakes was won by Descarado, who won the race ahead of Avienus and Lights Of Heaven.

Descarado may defend his title in this year’s edition of the 2012 Yalumba Stakes after having a year off racing due to injury.
