Moonee Valley Racing Club respectfully acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of this land, the Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung people of the Kulin Nation, and pay our respects to its Elders past, present and emerging. It’s the 103rd running of Australia’s Best Race, the Ladbrokes Cox Plate. What a fantastic field that’s assembled from all over the globe. Leading the charge is Hong Kong’s star Romantic Warrior. Last year’s winning jockey James McDonald takes the reins once again on Danny Shum’s top galloper. Champion Irish trainer Aidan O’Brien meanwhile returns to The Valley with the emerging Victoria Road. There’s plenty of class among the local contenders too. Alligator Blood for Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott is going as well as ever. Gold Trip, luckless last year, is right in the mix again. Mr Brightside for Lindsay Park doesn’t know how to run a bad race. Chris Waller, no stranger to Ladbrokes Cox Plate success, has two leading chances with quality mare Fangirl and three-year-old Militarize. Duais meanwhile could provide Damien Oliver, our 2023 Kingston Town Greatness Award inductee, with a third W.S. Cox Plate victory in what will be his final ride in the race. Adding to the excitement is the inclusion of another Group 1, the Ladbrokes Manikato Stakes, on the card. New Zealand mare Imperatriz has a chance at history, aiming to complete The Valley Group 1 sprinting triple crown, having claimed the 3 Point Motors William Reid Stakes in the Autumn, while she broke her own 1000m track record last start in the Charter Keck Cramer Moir Stakes. The crowd will be in fine voice for the traditional singing of ‘The Horses’, and it’s fantastic to have one of Australia’s most exciting singer-songwriters, James Johnston, performing at The Valley. Ladbrokes Cox Plate Day is a unique celebration, and I wish you a truly fantastic experience, and best of luck to all trainers, jockeys, and connections. CHAIR ADAM LENNEN CHAIR’S WELCOME WELCOME TO LADBROKES COX PLATE DAY AT THE VALLEY. WHAT A PLEASURE IT IS TO BE ON TRACK TO WITNESS THE LEGENDARY ACTION.

HONG KONG SENDS A WARRIOR BY BEN CALUZZI But who exactly is Romantic Warrior, and how will he stack up against Australia’s best Weight For Age horses? Romantic Warrior is an Irish-bred son of Acclamation, out of a mare named Folk Melody. Folk Melody was sired by shuttle stallion Street Cry, who produced Street Boss, who then had Anamoe – last year’s Ladbrokes Cox Plate champion. Already, the Hong Kong superstar has ties to The Valley and a relation to the Ladbrokes Cox Plate that many don’t even know about. Owned solely by Hong Kong businessman Peter Lau, Romantic Warrior was a PPG purchase from Europe and has proven a worthwhile one at that. There is no breeding program in Hong Kong for a myriad of reasons, and horses are either imported (previously raced in another jurisdiction) or as a PPG (privately Romantic Warrior burst onto the Hong Kong racing scene with back-to-back wins in his first two starts at Happy Valley, claiming consecutive 1200-metre Class 4 events under Joao Moreira. While modest in grade, the nature of victory on both occasions demonstrated there was an above WITH A RATING OF 123, DANNY SHUM’S ROMANTIC WARRIOR IS UNDOUBTEDLY ONE OF THE BEST HORSES IN THE WORLD. FROM 15 TRIPS TO THE RACES, HE’S WON TEN TIMES, RUN SECOND THREE TIMES, AND NEVER MISSED THE TOP FOUR. But who exactly is Romantic Warrior, and how will he stack up against Australia’s best Weight For Age horses? Romantic Warrior is an Irish-bred son of Acclamation, out of a mare named Folk Melody.

While modest in grade, the nature of victory on both occasions demonstrated there was an above
average engine under the hood, and better races were beyond doubt in the immediate future. Romantic Warrior took to Class 3 company with similar ease, stepping one-by-one again. Unbeaten from four starts, he came into the prestigious Hong Kong Four-Year-Old Classic Series as one of the main chances, along with California Spangle, a bold frontrunner ridden by our own Zac Purton. Romantic Warrior beat California Spangle in the Hong Kong Classic Mile (1600m), California Spangle then hit back and won the second leg in the Hong Kong Classic Cup (1800m), but Romantic Warrior would get the last laugh and win the Hong Kong Derby (2000m) in the decider, beating California Spangle in second again. The rivalry between the pair continued into their five-year-old season, and epic stoushes with Hong Kong’s champion horse Golden Sixty had the trio nicknamed ‘The Big Three’. While the Hong Kong Four-Year-Old Classic Series races are only considered ‘Domestic Group 1 races’, that is, they are not recognised as Group 1 on the international stage, Romantic Warrior has since taken home three Weight For Age Group 1 races that are. He won the Queen Elizabeth II Cup in 2022, backed it up with the biggest win of his career in the Hong Kong Cup later that year, then defended his crown in the Queen Elizabeth II Cup back in April. In his latest three victories, he’s been partnered by last year’s Ladbrokes Cox Plate winning jockey James McDonald, who will ride him in this year’s race. The world’s leading rider in 2022/23, Jmac has been full of praise for the Hong Kong superstar and will be hoping lightning can strike for a second time come the last Saturday in October. “It just sets up beautifully for him”, McDonald told us. “His best trip is 10-furlongs, he’s got a high cruising speed, he’s got tactical speed, he can sustain a long run and he’s got an unbelievable turn of foot – he’s an absolute beast. “This is a pretty outstanding horse, he’s got a phenomenal will to win and I’m pretty excited they took the opportunity to bring him down for such a great race. “The prizemoney is great in Hong Kong, but they’re willing to go and win some of the best races in the world. “He’s definitely up there with some of the best horses I’ve sat on, and hopefully he can stand up and be counted come Cox Plate time.” One of the direct form references that only enhances the credentials of Romantic Warrior is through the William Haggas trained Dubai Honour, who was one of the horses of the Australian Autumn in 2023. Dubai Honour won the Ranvet Stakes at Rosehill Gardens by four-and-a-half lengths, then backed it up with an even more stunning victory in the Queen Elizabeth, belting Mo’unga and Anamoe by two-and-a-half. He subsequently went to Hong Kong and could only manage to get within that very margin of Romantic Warrior in the QEII Cup. In that said race, Romantic Warrior also handled a well credentialed Japanese horse in Prognosis, who flew back home and won the Group 2 Sapporo Kinen by four lengths, stamping the form again. Romantic Warrior’s incredible CV won’t be what queries punters this Spring Carnival though. A change of feed, rigorous vetting process and the weight of history is what stands in Romantic Warrior’s way. A Hong Kong trained horse has never won the W.S. Cox Plate, and overall, their record down under is scarce to be kind. If he is to become the first he will go down as of the very best internationals ever to grace our shores.

CATANACH’S BRENT THOMSON J OCKEY CHAL ENGE Named in honour of the four-time W.S. Cox Plate winning jockey, the Catana Brent Thomson Award is given to the rider with the most accumulated amount of points on a 3,2,1 system across the two-days of the Ladbrokes Cox Plate Carnival. ‘The Babe’ enjoyed a long and fruitful career in the saddle with over 2500 winners to his name worldwide. He was born in New Zealand in 1958 and by the time he turned 16 was champion apprentice. It would be the following year as a 17-year-old that Thomson would win his first W.S. Cox Plate aboard Fury’s Order and begin one of the most dominant runs of any rider in the history of the race. In the four years that followed, Thomson would win three consecutive W.S. Cox Plates from 1977-1979 aboard Family of Man and the Colin Hayes pair So Called and the brilliant Dulcify. Given Thomson’s remarkable success in Australasia’s Weight-forAge Classic, the Brent Thomson Jockey Challenge was first introduced in 2018. The winner of the Catanach’s Jewellers Brent Thomson Award will receive a set of bespoke cufflinks expertly crafted by Catanach’s with 9 carat yellow gold and silver with a diamond set in the whip.
