Cox Plate History

The Cox Plate is without question the greatest two minutes in Australian racing.

Inaugurated in 1922 when Tangalooma took out the event, it’s a veritable who’s who of racing that’s taken this event out.

Named in honour of William Samuel Cox who founded the Moonee Valley race club, the weight-for-age classic is Australia's second richest weight-for-age race behind the Queen Elizabeth Stakes. 

In recent times the Cox Plate is a truly international race.

The champions list includes the likes of four-time winner Winx, three-time winner Kingston Town, star galloper Northerly and the inimitable Phar Lap. 

The history of the Cox Plate has an incredible list of past winners, trainers and jockeys the likes of which is probably only rivalled by the race that stops a nation, the Melbourne Cup.

Cox Plate Field

The Cox Plate field will be set in the lead up to the event, most likely a week in advance of the race date.

Check back in October for the complete Cox Plate field.

Cox Plate Form Guide

The Cox Plate form guide has been incredibly easy over the last four years with the champion Winx taking out the race each time she confronted the race.

Going forward however the race will be a lot harder to predict. With international runners now prepared to journey over with the champion mare retired, the field should be spectacular going forward.

Thankfully we have a team of experts working on your Cox Plate form guide so you don’t have to do all the hard work.
