The 2021 Vo Rogue Plate is a Group 3 race that is now held back at Eagle Farm Racecourse in late December or early January during the Queensland Summer Racing Carnival.

Raced over 1400m, the Vo Rogue Plate is restricted to three year olds and is held under set weight conditions. It pays a lucrative $300,000 total prize money and attracts a class line-up of young horses each Christmas racing season.

The Vo Rogue Plate formerly shared a race program with the Group 3 BJ McLachlan Plate (1200m), which is held under the same conditions but for two year olds before being moved to its own feature race meeting in 2021.

The other key races on Vo Rogue Plate Day, also known as Magic Millions Qualifier Day, include the $200,000 The Buffering for Magic Millions Cup hopefuls and the $125,000 Shoot Out.

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 $2 million Magic Millions 3YO Guineas (1400m). Pierata (2017/18) followed the next season by Boomsara (2018/19) are the latest Vo Rogue Plate winnesr to back up and win the Magic Millions 3YO Guineas. 

The 2019 Vo Rogue Plate winner Alligator Blood won the Magic Millions 3YO Guineas next start but was later disqualified due to a positive swab for a banned substance. Alligator Blood also franked the Vo Rogue Plate form going on to win the 2020 Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m) in Melbourne the following autumn.

There was no 2020 edition of the Vo Rogue Plate with the event moved from December 2020 to January 2021.

The 2021 Vo Rogue Plate runs on Saturday January 2nd, 2021.

Vo Rogue Plate History

The Vo Rogue Plate is a relatively new race. Inaugurated in 2006, it was quickly upgraded to Group 3 in 2009.

Due to scheduling changes, there were two editions of the race in 2008, and none in 2007.

The race is named after champion galloper Vo Rogue. Vo Rogue was an impressive thoroughbred, often charging to the front of the field to lead for the entire race before finishing impressively. He had an extensive career, with a total of 83 starts. Of those, he won 26, including an impressive six Group 1 victories.

There was officially no 2020 edition of the race with the event moved from that December to January of 2021.

Notable Vo Rogue Plate winners include Graceful Anna (2009), Lucky Hussler (2012), Winning Rupert (2016), Pierata (2017) whose impressive subsequent career would include wins in the 2019 Group 1 All Aged Stakes and $1 million Redzel Stakes and the following season’s Australian Guineas champion Alligator Blood (2019). Vo Rogue Plate results, place getters and winning times are provided below.
