The Furphy Plate, also known as the Melbourne Cup Day Plate, is a 1800m Listed race held at Flemington Racecourse. The handicap has a $150,000 prize pool and in 2020 will be run on Tuesday, November 3, the same day as the Melbourne Cup.
Yulong Prince won the Furphy Plate in 2019 for the Chris Waller stable. Looks Like Elvis and So You Win finished second and third respectively, both less than half a length behind. In 2020, Yulong Prince finished second in the Group 2 Ajax Stakes.
Racing Sharks VIP Tips Package:
Trainer Chris Waller has had decent success in the race of late. He has won the Furphy Plate the last two years, first with Kaonic and then with Yulong prince. In the last 20 years, no jockey has quite been able to replicate that success.
The fastest time in the Furphy Plate over the last 21 years belongs to Depeche Mode, who ran 1:47.50 back in 1999. The time is also the Flemington 1800m track record. 2019 winner Yulong Prince clocked 1:50.98 to claim his victory.
