How do horses qualify for the Melbourne Cup?

More than 150 horses earned Melbourne Cup nominations in 2019, but there is only room for 24 in the final field. There are two common routes to the race that stops a nation:

Exemptions A horse can gain automatic entry into the Melbourne Cup field by winning one of several designated qualifying races. These are the Andrew Ramsden Stakes, The Bart Cummings, Lexus Stakes, Cox Plate and Caulfield Cup in Australia, as well as the Irish St Leger and Japan’s Tenno Sho.

Ballot Unless they have won exemption through one of the aforementioned races, nominated horses must try their luck in the Melbourne Cup ballot. Each ballot contender is listed in the Melbourne Cup order of entry, which ranks the prospective runners based on key criteria such as recent results, prize money and handicaps.
