L A DBROK E S Ma n i k a t o S t a k e s N i g h t FRIDAY 21 OCTOBER The Valley comes alive with Australia’s richest racing under lights and the 55th edition of the Ladbrokes Manikato Stakes. Get ready for a spectacular night of racing action, delicious food, kids’ activities and live entertainment as we raise the curtain on the Ladbrokes Cox Plate Carnival. A headline music act and a nine-race card make for fun and entertainment from start to finish. Unforgettable memories are spread far and wide across this iconic destination, with hospitality options high in the stands or up close to the action. The names of Vain, Rubiton, Sunline, Miss Andretti, Chautauqua, Hey Doc, and last year’s winner Jonker, all stamped themselves on The Valley’s biggest sprinting stage – and it’s just the start of an unmissable 24 hours of elite sporting action. L A DBROK E S C o x P l a t e Da y SATURDAY 22 OCTOBER The Ladbrokes Cox Plate has been described as the best two minutes in sport and is rightly known as Australia’s Best Race. The anticipation of what’s to come, the roar of the racing purists, the singing of the unofficial anthem ‘The Horses’ and the dining experiences in iconic locations are all combined as we await to crown the next legend of Australasia’s Weight-for-Age Championship. A raceday steeped in tradition, it’s elite black-type racing with truly global appeal. Will last year’s Irish champion State Of Rest return to give Johnny Allen back-to-back victories? Expect the very best in dining and an array of spectacular options befitting of this special milestone - the Centenary running of the W.S. Cox Plate. 1 7
