What to Expect at Cox Plate 2016

cox plate 2016

Brace yourselves as one of Australia’s greatest horseracing events happens this week – The Cox Plate.

The Cox Plate’s course has a reputation of being a remarkable race track. It’s a challenge to the world’s greatest thoroughbred horses. Loops and bends will test the stability and acceleration of thoroughbreds coupled with the appropriate behaviour to cope with a claustrophobic condition.

This year’s Cox Plate will be definitely one for the books. The racetrack’s facade will undergo a couple of changes to compete with Australia’s impressive horseracing event courses.

Cox Plate’s Racetrack Gets a Major Facelift

Major changes will be implemented after this year’s Cox Plate. The racecourse will experience a facelift. The grandstand and winning post will be relocated 90 degrees to the left from their present spot which will create a home straight almost furlong longer.

The Cox Plate racetrack will re-open in 2022 which means the 2021 Cox Plate will be held in a different venue and course. The $150 million redevelopment budget will create a visual delight for Cox Plate fans. It is expected to draw new horseracing fans to its newly renovated race course.

Let’s Take a Look at Cox Plate’s Stars

Sam Clipperton and Joao Moreira are currently stuck in Hong Kong due to a typhoon. The jockey agents will not be able to ride Vadamos in the Cox Plate and English in the Manikato Stakes. The Hong Kong Jockey Club have told Clipperton and Moreira to prepare themselves to ride at Sha Tin over the weekend.

Mark Zahra prepares to mount English and also expected to ride on Vadamos. It will depend on Damien Oliver’s appeal hearing since he is trying to repeal a 20-meeting suspension for reckless riding and imprudence.
