Steeped in history, racing was first held at the Caulfield Racecourse site in 1859. In Caulfield’s early days of racing, jockeys rode through rough bush, heath, and sand hills, earning Caulfield its affectionate nickname “The Heath”. The Heath at Caulfield Racecourse now fondly carries this nickname.
