Moonee Valley Bows To TV Deadline For Cox Plate
In broadcasting news, the "stoush" between the Moonee Valley Racing Club and Channel Nine over the starting time for this year's Gr1 Cox Plate "has been resolved", reports dailytelegraph.com.au, with a 5.15pm start time confirmed. With Channel Nine insisting that "travel show [Getaway] was a better rating's winner than the race meeting as a lead into its 6pm news bulletin" MVRC has compromised on what was to be a 5.35pm start to the race. Michael Browell, Chief Executive of the MVRC noted, "We're still disappointed that the situation got to this. We had our times locked in for months."
