AMAZING WIN BY MAIDEN SHAMUS AWARD IN THE COX PLATE!  Race replay and special interviews with trainer, jockey

Cox Plate official web site
The Cox Plate is rated by many to be the truest test of horses' abilities in Australia, and is second in prestige only to the Melbourne Cup

There’s no doubt It’s A Dundeel is a seriously good horse. But is he a bonafide champion deserving of the title of best horse in Australia?

The four-year-old boasts an incredibly impressive record: nine wins and two minor placings from 14 starts, five of them at Group 1 level, and prize money of $2,377,155.

It’s A Dundeel proved he was above average when he dominated the Sydney autumn carnival. He was brilliant in becoming the first horse since the great Octagonal in 1996 to claim the Triple Crown (Randwick Guineas, Rosehill Guineas and ATC Australian Derby), winning the final two legs by an aggregate of almost 13 lengths, while his six-length Derby triumph was one of the easiest and most impressive in the history of the race. His amazing autumn was recognised when he was awarded the 2013 NSW Champion Horse of the Year award.

He’s also the only horse to have lowered the colours of the brilliant Atlantic Jewel.  Read more at source
