INTERNATIONAL COX PLATE BONUS

INTERNATIONAL COX PLATE BONUS

The Moonee Valley Racing Club has unveiled an international bonus attached to the Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m), with the winners of selected top-level overseas races eligible for an even bigger pay-day should they win Australasia’s weight-for-age showpiece.

The club said it would partner with a number of leading middle distance weight-for-age Group 1 turf races around the world, the winner of which would be eligible for a $2 million bonus should they also win the $5 million Cox Plate at Moonee Valley in October.

The first race to be included is Japan’s Group 1 Takarazuka Kinen (2200m) on June 23, with additional races to be announced in the coming weeks.
