The Cox Plate was named after William Samuel Cox, who founded the Moonee Valley racecourse. The race is positioned in between two of Australia’s other biggest race meets, the $3 million Caulfield Cup and the Melbourne Cup. The winner of the Cox Plate gains automatic entry into the Melbourne Cup that year, without being subjected to the balloting system.

Known as ‘the greatest two minutes in sport’ by many horse racing enthusiasts, it is rated by many as the truest test of a horses racing ability in Australia. The Cox plate was named in 1999 as part of the global ‘grand prix’ of horse racing in the ‘Emirates World Series Racing Championship’. It is the only race from the southern hemisphere to make this list.
