The JRA Plate is a Group 3 race for three-year-olds under quality handicap conditions. It is held at the famous Royal Randwick Racecourse and is part of the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival. The JRA Plate is one of four Group 3 races held on All Aged Stakes Day, which also includes the Frank Packer Plate, the James HB Carr Stakes and the Hall Mark Stakes. Horses who take part in the Group 3 Skyhigh Stakes and the Group 3 Neville Sellwood Stakes tend to progress to this race as the 2000m distance is perfect.
The JRA Plate honour roll has featured some quality horses over the years, but none more prominent than Melbourne Cup winner, Viewed, who was successful in this event before a spell and a Cup campaign in the spring of 2008. Other notable winners include Tie The Knot (1999) and Kelinni (2013).
