>Shocking wins Melbourne Cup


The name certainly fits as that was his SECOND WIN IN 4 DAYS!!

You read that correctly, Shocking captured the $5 million Cup on Tuesday – after winning his ‘tune-up’ race over weekend just prior.

Says his trainer Mark Kavanagh: “He was so good on Saturday and he improved since that run, his preparation was timed to perfection.”

Boy, do I agree.

Good to see that some places still train/race like the olden days. I have another post in here somewhere that indicates ancedotally that Australia also has the lowest occurrence of fatal breakdowns.
