The first time this race was ran was back in 1922 and won by Tangalooma. Several famous horses that competed and won the Melbourne Cup also raced the Cox Plate and won was well such as Sun line and Northerly. Despite having won three times, Kingston Town was never able to win the three big races in the same year.
