Ted Van Heemst / CB Cox Stakes History

Inaugurated in 1914 as the Grandstand Plate, the Ted Van Heemst Stakes was renamed in 2016 in honour of Western Australian Racing Hall of Famer Ted Van Heemst and was previously known as the CB Cox Stakes from 1920-2015.

The race was previously contested over 2400m, but was reduced in 2009 after the Perth Cup distance was also cut from a traditional two-mile cup distance (3200m) to the mile and a half (2400m).

The Ted Van Heemst Stakes has held Group 2 status since 1979 and has been won by a number of notable stayers including Eurythmic (1920) who went on to win a host of interstate Group 1 races including the Caulfield Cup (1920), that year’s Melbourne Cup winner Piping Lane (1972), the reigning Cox Plate champion at the time Battle Heights (1974) and more recently Delicacy (2015) who won the following January’s Perth Cup.

The 2019 Ted Van Heemst Stakes winner Regal Power went on to win the following year’s $5 million The All-Star Mile in Melbourne.
