A huge crowd of more than 38,000 packed into Moonee Valley to see if Sunline could emulate the great Kingston Town by winning her third Cox Plate in a row. She was certainly the crowd favourite but it was not to be with the WA galloper Northerly joining the elite ranks in winning our WFA championship. He had to survive a double protest from Sunline (second) and Viscount (third) before being crowned but he showed great fight to win after again looking as though he was struggling before the turn. The star German galloper Silvano ran well for fourth but never threatened the first three. Northerly gave Damien Oliver his second Cox Plate and provided him with an extra thrill with horse, trainer and jockey all being West Australians.
