First Aust female trainer wins Melbourne Cup

05/11/2013

Fiorente, ridden by Damien Oliver, and trained by Gai Waterhouse, won the Melbourne Cup.

Ageless marvel Red Cadeaux has run second for the second time after finishing runner-up by a few pixels to Dunaden in 2011, while Mount Athos ran third, in what will be another frustrating placing for the English Cumani stable. . .

Waterhouse is the first Australian woman to train a Cup winner.

For those who follow my totally unreliable method of picking winners by the jockey’s colours, Oliver was in black with a hot pink stripe for his third Cup win.

Red Cadeuaux’s jockey Gerald Mosse was in tourquise with red diamonds and Mount Athos was ridden by Craig Williams in grey with gold stars.

Waterhouse’s son Tom will be thrilled with the win, he won $1,000,000 betting on the horse.

#gigatownoamaru is still racing towards the #gigatown prize.

 


First French jockey to win Melbourne Cup

02/11/2010

Gerald Mosse who rode Americain to victory in the Melbourne Cup is the first Frenchman to win the race in 150 years.

Maluckyday (my pick for third) was second and the favourite So You Think was third.
