Held in the warmer month of December, the 2016 CB Cox Stakes is a 2100m staying event at Perth’s Ascot Racecourse.

For 2016 the CB Cox Stakes runs as the Ted Van Heemst Stakes.

Worth $250,000 in prize money, the Group 2 event attracts good staying horses that are suited to the weight-for-age conditions. The CB Cox Stakes is the first race over 2000m held during summer and it is the ideal lead-up race to the Group 2 Perth Cup (2400m) held around a fortnight later at the end of the Perth Summer Racing Carnival.

2016 CB Cox Stakes Nominations

The CB Cox Stakes nominations usually attract some fairly decent local horses from stables around Ascot and Belmont Park. Although sometimes horses travel from NSW and Victoria stables to enter the CB Cox Stakes nominations, it is usually only the top runners that make it into the final field.

The 2016 CB Cox Stakes nominations will be published below as soon as made available by Perth Racing.

CB Cox Stakes History

Formerly run over 2400m, the C.B. Cox Stakes was reduced to 2100m in 2008 to coincide with the Perth Cup.

There have been several horses which have won the C.B Cox Stakes/Perth Cup double including Cats Fun (2007), Palatious (1993), Mirror Magic (1991) and Saratov (1988).

First won by Radnor in 1914, the race was originally known as the Grandstand Plate until 1919. Since then, it has been won more than once by Eracre (1925-26), Maple (1927-28), Gay Balkan (1939-40), Royal Coral (1965-66), Tropical Chief (1975-76) and Old Cobber (1997, 1999).
