Cox Plate Field

The 2019 Cox Plate Field & Barriers are announced on Tuesday October 22, 2019 so stay tuned to see the official Ladbrokes Cox Plate horses for 2019!

Each year the Ladbrokes Cox Plate field attracts a star-studded line-up of the best local and international weight-for-age horses. Run on a Saturday in late October at the notoriously tight Moonee Valley Racecourse, the Cox Plate field has a capacity of 14 starters plus four emergencies.

A large number of foreign raiders seek entry into the Ladbrokes Cox Plate field each year, and every year the Moonee Valley Racing Club (MVRC) extends an official Cox Plate invitation to a number of top international runners.

Ladbrokes Cox Plate nominations are taken in early August followed by a number of acceptance stages to whittle-down the hopeful runners to the official Cox Plate field, which is announced on the Tuesday of race week.

2019 Cox Plate Field

The 2019 Ladbrokes Cox Plate Final Field & Barriers was released on Tuesday October 22, 2019.
