Nicknamed "The race that stops a nation", the Melbourne Cup is one of the biggest days in the Australian sporting calendar, and takes place at Flemington each year on the first Tuesday of November. The race is so popular that it is a public holiday for some parts of Australia, and has a similar kind of popularity to the Grand National in the UK. Run over two miles on the Flat, the race is for stayers, and boasts one of the biggest purses in the world - offering AUS $9 million in 2019.

What is the Melbourne Cup? 

The Melbourne Cup is the biggest race in the Australian calendar, and is a Group 1 handicap over a distance of two miles. Held at Flemington in Victoria, the race is hugely popular, and is watched live in over 70 countries from around the world. As you would expect, Australian-trained horses have a strong grip on the race, though the prize money has continued to increase, the challenge from overseas is getting stronger and stronger.

Traditionally, British raiders have had a terrible time of things in the race, though the tide is slowly turning, and Cross Counter became the first British trained horse to win the race for Charlie Appleby in 2018. The Irish have fared slightly better, and the Dermot Weld-trained Vintage Crop was Northern Hemisphere winner of the race in 1993. Since then, Media Puzzle (2002), Rekindling (2017) and Twilight Payment (2020) have all taken the trophy back to Ireland. 

What happened in the 2021 Melbourne Cup? 

Chris Waller's Verry Ellleegant was a fine winner of the 2021 Melbourne Cup, as the star mare pulled clear of the red-hot favourite Incentivise, with the Andrew Balding-trained British raider Spanish Mission finishing best of the rest in third.
