Books - Valley of the Kings
The W. S. Cox Plate, now considered the weight-for-age championship of Australasia, started with no pretence.
The Moonee Valley Racing Club first mentioned the race as an afterthought at the 1921 Annual General meeting when chairman Alister Clark said:
"I did desire to touch upon one thing that slipped my memory. We have been hoping to get a weight-for-age race at Moonee Valley," he said.."I think there is no doubt that in our next Cup program we will be able to have a good weight-for-age race. The distance has yet to be decided, but the stake will be £1,000."I think you will all be glad to hear that."
Little did he realise the status the race would quickly achieve. Its winners represent the Who's Who in Australasian racing. Now the story is available for the first time, with a history about the race and a blow by blow description of every race in the 200 page hard cover book 'Valley Of The Kings".
