Cox Plate Day Video


The horse that wasn't supposed to get a start, the teenage apprentice riding in the race for the first time, and the trainer who never lost the faith. This sums up the extraordinary story behind the most unlikely Cox Plate winner of them all - Shamus Award.

Re-live the excitement of Shamus Award's historic Cox Plate victory thanks to Racing Victoria's Spring Racing Carnival feature video.
