Valley Tours

Why not uncover some of the rich history and untold stories of The Valley, the home of Australia’s most prestigious horse race the Ladbrokes Cox Plate, with a Valley Tour.

While history is often made on the track, a tour will relive all the past glory of W.S. Cox Plate winners such as Australian sporting icons Phar Lap, Kingston Town, Sunline, Might and Power, Winx and many more. 

With The Valley’s redevelopment marked for late 2020, the time is now to uncover what really happens behind the scenes in the inner-sanctum and experience the history behind one of the country’s great historical racecourses.

A race day tour of The Valley will take MVRC members and general visitors on a journey that will showcase where the W.S. Cox Plate legends of the past were stabled, unveil the location of where the mighty Manikato was buried, provide a glimpse of rarely seen Cox Plate trophies, get you up close and personal with the horses in the mounting yard and provide a rare chance to watch a race from the side of the Winner’s Circle. 

To book your behind the scenes tour of The Valley, call 1300 THE VALLEY (1300 843 825).
