The 2016 Vo Rogue Plate is a Group 3 race that is now held at Eagle Farm Racecourse. In recent summers it has taken place at both Doomben Racecourse in Brisbane as well as the Gold Coast Racecourse.

Raced over 1300m, the Vo Rogue Plate is restricted to three year olds and is held under set weight conditions. It pays $200,000 total prize money, which makes it a fairly lucrative summer time target for three year olds.

The Vo Rogue Plate shares a race program with the Group 3 BJ McLachlan Plate (1200m), which is held under the same conditions but for two year olds.

Following the Vo Rogue Plate, many horses head to the paddock to rest up during January, which is a quiet month for racing. Some will return to racing during the Autumn, while yet others will hold off until the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival. Some also choose to race during the Magic Millions Carnival in January if they are Magic Millions graduates and run in the Restricted Listed Magic Millions 3YO Guineas (1400m).

The 2016 Vo Rogue Plate ran on December 31st.
