"The Valley is set for a modern day record crowd of almost 39,000 who will witness Winx aim to become the first horse to win four W.S. Cox Plates. Since the announcement was made by trainer Chris Waller in March that Winx would stay in Australia and race on through the Spring Carnival, the level of interest in the 2018 Ladbrokes Cox Plate has been unprecedented," said Michael Browell, CEO MVRC.
