The Ladbrokes Cox Plate is the premier weight-for-age race in Australia and is known as Australasia’s weight-for-age championship. This Group 1 race is run over 2040m on turf at Moonee Valley Racecourse in late October each year and is held as part of the illustrious Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival.
Worth over $5 million, the race attracts the champion gallopers from across the globe competing for the richest weight-for-age prize in Australia and is the second of the three Spring Majors following the Group 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m) the Saturday before.
The Cox Plate is often referred to as “the race where legends are made” and has been won by many turf greats over the years including So You Think (2009-10) and historic four-time champion Winx (2015-18) who were the last multiple Cox Plate winners. Winx joined Kingston Town (1980-82) as the only three-time Cox Plate champion with her narrow victory over Humidor in the 2017 Cox Plate results, which also saw the heroic mare set a race record time set by herself in 2015. She then surpassed Kingston Town with her fourth Cox Plate trophy in 2018 before her retirement.
In 2014 the then Aidan O’Brien-trainedLadbr Adelaide became the first Northern Hemisphere-trained Cox Plate winner and since then the number of international Cox Plate nominations continues to rise.
The 2019 Ladbrokes Cox Plate takes place on Saturday October 26, 2019 .

The WS Cox Plate is one of the most highly bet on and anticipated races in the country. Cox Plate betting is also popular with the punters as it is included in some of the major betting doubles in the Spring Carnival. Punters often indulge in the Cox Plate – Melbourne Cup double, but only six horses have won achieved the feat with Makybe Diva, Might and Power, Saintly, Nightmarch, Phar Lap and Rising Fast. Rising Fast is an especially notable winner as he is the only horse in history to also have won the Caulfield Cup in the same year, taking out this feature treble in 1954.
The race’s position towards the end of the Spring Carnival means punters have a plethora of trials and lead-up runs to consider the entries’ Cox Plate form and chances of success in the Cox Plate. There are a range of different events the final Cox Plate field may come via, including three-years-old hopefuls coming out of the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) a fortnight before. Earlier races to watch as an indication for the Cox Plate include the Group 1 Underwood Stakes (1800m) in September, the Group 2 Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes (1600m) and the Group 2 Makybe Diva Stakes (1600m).
A change of scheduling for the Melbourne Cup Carnival from 2016 saw the race formerly known as the Mackinnon Stakes and run on Victoria Derby Day moved to the first Saturday of November and raced as the new Group 1 Emirates Stakes (2000m) in a bid to attract more Cox Plate graduates.
