Cox Plate Day is without a doubt the biggest event hosted by the Moonee Valley Race Club, at its world famous track, located just 6km north of Melbourne’s CBD. The Cox Plate holds the limelight, but there six other group rated races and two 1000m sprints (for two-year-olds and Open Class) to complete a massive day of racing. Total stakes for the day exceed $4.2m, with the bulk reserved for the Cox Plate over 2040m.
While the races are the main focus for the day, fashions on the field always seems to steal the show, with the best frocks becoming the centre of attention. It is one of the most exciting race days in the world with the winners names etched on the W.S. Cox Plate Wall of Champions in the Octagonal Lounge at the Moonee Valley Racecourse.
