Sir Dragonet has won the 100th running of the Cox Plate in a thrilling upset.
In Australia’s premier weight-for-age contest, a field of 14 battled it out for the Cox Plate at Moonee Valley in Melbourne, with Sir Dragonet securing the victory.
After “the best two minutes in sport”, Armory and Russian Camelot finished in second and third respectively, while Mugatoo crossed the finish line in fourth.
Although Russian Camelot was the undisputed favourite leading into the event, Sir Dragonet will take home $3 million of the $5 million worth of prizemoney on offer.
More to come …
