When we dressed up for the Cox Plate

A different time, a different era, when we went to the races, when we dressed for the occasion to see and wave flags for our heroes - the year 2011 - Greg Eurell's Pinker Pinker under Craig Williams won the Group 1 WS Cox Plate (2040m), Peter Moody's Black Caviar under Luke Nolen won the Group 2 Schweppes Stakes (1200m) by 6L over Doubtful Jack, Here de Angels and Scenic Blast and Alan de Royer Dupre's Americain (USA) under Gerald Mosse won the Group 2 Moonee Valley Gold Cup (2500m).
