Moonee Valley Weighing Up Cox Plate Night Start
Following a jam-packed Moonee Valley last Friday where a capacity 25,000 crowd turned up to watch Black Caviar, racingnetwork.com.au reports that Moonee Valley officials are now seriously considering the prospect of having the Cox Plate under lights. "Out of Friday night there will have to be a discussion whether or not we move forward with a night Cox Plate," commented Moonee Valley chief executive Michael Browell. "It was just outstanding... Okay, it was Black Caviar the other night, but to see what Moonee Valley can do at night for a feature race then it (a night Cox Plate) has to be explored for sure."
