Maribyrnong Plate News
The Group 3 2019 Maribyrnong Plate is a 1000m sprint held at Flemington Racecourse on Kennedy Oaks Day on the first Thursday of November each Melbourne Cup Carnival.
Restricted to two year olds and run under set weights, the Maribyrnong Plate is an exciting test of sprinting skill. With $200,000 prize money, this is quite a lucrative race for the young ones who otherwise don’t have many dedicated black-type races during spring.
The Maribyrnong Plate, formerly held on the last day of the Cup Carnival, now shares a race schedule with a host of other black type events including the Group 1 $1 million Kennedy Oaks (2500m) for three-year-old fillies.
Two year olds generally target the Maribyrnong Plate following a few decent starts in events with similar conditions. Plenty of the juveniles in the Maribyrnong Plate are on debut, meaning any trial form is important for punters to keep an eye on.
Following the Maribyrnong Plate, horses will generally go for a spell to mature ahead of the autumn or the Listed Merson Cooper Stakes (1000m) at Sandown a week later might be an opportunity for some of the keener two year olds.
The 2019 Maribyrnong Plate ran at Flemington on Thursday November 7, 2019 and was won by All Too Hard colt Hard Landing on debut.
