Melbourne Cup Update:
Viewed has won the $5.5 million Melbourne Cup with Bauer in second and C'est La Guerre in third.
Viewed survived a desperate photo finish to give master trainer Bart Cummings his 12th Melbourne Cup.
Viewed, ridden by Blake Shinn, just outlasted a spirited final burst from Bauer, with C'est La Guerre third.
"A nice win,'' Cummings said in his usual laconic manner.
The top Kiwi hope Nom Du Jeu, who won the AJC Derby, finished well back and pre-race favourite Mad Rush also failed to fire.
Allesandro Volta led the field through the 1200m mark from Septimus before the final race for home.
my money was on # 5...7...8...9...17 and 18.....drat I was close!!
I'll be looking at the horse that came in first out of the 7 horses picked by my readers...and the prize will go to the reader who picked the fastest horse..
New Zealand Derby winner C'est La Guerre, now representing the 2007 Cup-winning connections of Efficient, finished strongly for third, while 2007 Caulfield Cup winner Master O'Reilly charged home along the rails to finish fourth ahead of Irish-trained Profound Beauty and Cummings's second runner, Moatize, ridden by Victoria Derby-winning jockey Clare Lindop.
so that makes John the winner...congratulations John....thanks to everyone for joining in the fun!!
Happy Happy Birthday to
Diane @ Much of a muchness
