Ladbrokes Cox Plate Carnival 2017

The 2017 Ladbrokes Cox Plate, The Race Where Legends Are Made, is set to be one of the most memorable in the race’s 97-year history. Champion mare, Winx, will be aiming to join the LEGENDARY Kingston Town and become just the second horse in history to win three consecutive W.S. Cox Plates.

The Ladbrokes Cox Plate Carnival is a week-long festival of events like no other with plenty of colour, fun, racing and fashion taking centre stage.

‘A Legendary Night’ event provides an up close and personal experience with one of the Legends of the Cox Plate past. This will whet your appetite for bigger things to come as the Carnival cranks it up a notch and we begin the week of Ladbrokes Cox Plate Carnival fun.

Tuesday sees the time-honoured Breakfast with the Best Gallops, allowing the public to come and witness the Ladbrokes Manikato Stakes and Ladbrokes Cox Plate hopefuls test themselves on the tight turning Valley track. The Barrier Draw Breakfast follows and provides an atmosphere like no other, where the chances of those on the track rise and fall with every decision made by those off it.

The attention quickly turns to the fashion and entertainment aspect of the Ladbrokes Cox Plate Carnival as the ladies take over for the Ladies Lunch on Wednesday.

A sneak peak of the entertainment to come, a fashion show, celebrities and gift bags leave all those in attendance counting down the hours until Friday night.
Why not come and experience the build-up and embrace the ‘Race Where Legends Are Made’
