The Valley is where excitement lives after dark and racing’s night of nights is where the best of equine and entertainment meet. As the bright lights shine on Melbourne’s racing cauldron, the curtain is raised on the Ladbrokes Cox Plate Carnival in spectacular fashion, where fun and festivity is the mantra.

It’s fast paced action from start to finish.
