The Cox Plate results come out directly after the big race, which is the second richest horse race in Australia behind the Melbourne Cup. The Cox Plate is worth a total of $5 million, which is one of the reasons it attracts such a high quality field of contenders every year. Once the race is completed on October 27, the official results are released to the public.
After the Cox Plate is over and punters have time to come to grips with the results, many people will take a close look at the official Cox Plate record. The results cover a lot of ground, which is why past results can sometimes be useful in the study of future races.
