The Summer Plate is the distance event on the Paws Of Thunder card each year, and as a result it regularly attracts a quality field of local and interstate stayers.

The great Fanta Bale ventured to Sydney in 2018 and won the Summer Plate, while smart types No Donuts (2016) and Space Star (2015) have also captured the event.

Interstate dogs have dominated in recent times with Queenslander Double Gee winning in 2019, and in the 2020 edition of the Summer Plate, Jeff Britton - who won the race with Dublin Bull in 2017 – prepared True Detective to take out the feature stayer event.
