The Cox Plate Carnival at The Valley is very different from the other Spring Racing headline events - the Cox Plate itself is widely believed to be the best WFA race in the world, and it holds a unique position in the Australian racing calendar.
And in recent years, of course, it has been a huge news item through the efforts of the remarkable Winx, who has now won the race a record-setting three times, and this year is returning to try and secure an historic and unprecedented fourth W.S. Cox Plate win.
Again leading with their well-established campaign line - ‘Legendary’ - the new ad campaign truly sums up what this Carnival is all about. The Carnival is actually two amazing race days back-to-back - which is also unique - kicking off with the marquee Ladbrokes Manikato Stakes on the Friday night under lights, and then culminating on Saturday with the race where legends are made - the Ladbrokes Cox Plate.
