CB Cox Stakes

Winners and Past Results for the CB Cox Stakes.

The CB Cox Stakes is a Group 2 race for horses three years old run under weight for age conditions.

The 2100 meter race is held at the Ascot Racecourse in Perth during the summer racing carnival.

Ascot Racecourse is noted as a famous English style racecourse where race goers gather every year to witness some of the finest sprinters, gallopers, and stayers on the Australian tracks. The race is hosted by Perth Racing towards the middle of December with $250,000 in prize money going to the winners.

The CB Cox Stakes is among the concluding black type events in the calendar year and the first summer race of the season beyond 2000 meters. For horses and punters the race is the perfect lead up to the Perth Cup held two weeks later in the season on New Year's Day.

Formerly a 2400 meter race, the distance in the CB Cox Stakes was reduced by 300 meters (2008) to coincide with the shortening of the Perth Cup from 3200 meters to 2400 meters in 2009.

The Group 1 Kingston Town Classic is usually a warm up race for horses seeking to tackle the CB Cox Stakes. Placed fourth in the Kingston Town Classic, Colour Correct scored a convincing victory in the 2010 CB Cox Stakes. Over the years, many horses have either placed well or won the CB Cox Stakes and Perth Cup.

The race has also produced many horses that went on to score a CB Cox Stakes/Perth Cup double. This includes some of the finest stayers such as Saratov in 1988, Mirror Magic in 1991, Palatious in 1993, Cats Fun in 2007, and Lords Ransom in 2009. Several horses such as Ideal Centreman in 1990, Free At Last in 2004, and Early Express in 2005, went on to place well in the Perth Cup.

The inaugural race was held in 1914 won by a horse named, Radnor. Eracre was the first to score back to back victories in 1925-26, followed by Maple in 1927-28, Gay Balkan in 1938-40, Royal Coral in 1965-66, and Tropical Chief in 1975-76.

The event remained a principal race until 1979 when it achieved Group 2 status. Among the most memorable CB Cox Stakes was the 2006 contest between Scenic Shot and Daka's Gem. The race was a dead heat and went down as one of the greatest in Australian racing history.
