Craven Plate Field

The Craven Plate field contains some very impressive staying horses, usually with extensive black type experience in their racing history. Acceptance into the Craven Plate field almost comes with a mandatory prerequisite of considerable success elsewhere. It is for this reason that the Craven Plate field has acquired and maintained a strong reputation for top quality – only the best of the best enter.
