MELBOURNE CUP RESULT 2015
LONG SHOT PRINCE OF PENZANCE WINS FOR MICHELLE PAYNE
Michelle Payne became the first lady to ride the Melbourne Cup winner when winning this year’s contest at long odds. It was a result few punters could have predicted but no real excuses for the beaten brigade.
1-PRINCE OF PENZANCE
Upset winner. Michelle Payne rode a very good race to get this longshot home. (Good for her) Began his 2016 campaign at Caulfield on Saturday
Game run in first race for weeks.
Carried a fair weight but still ran a huge race. Is one of the best horses in Australasia at the moment
4-TRIP TO PARIS
Followed up his Caulfield Cup second with good fourth here. May be back this year for another crack
6-GUST OF WIND
Excellent run though not really up to genuine Group one level.
Cracking effort after his Lexius win 3 days earlier.
9-QUEST FOR MORE
Won Lonsdale Cup (Group 3) at York in August so may be back for another attempt.
Did not get the best of runs but may have had his chances now.
11-WHO SHOT THE BARMAN
Did not get the best of runs, maybe he will be back for a 3rd attempt in 2016
A lot of fingers got severely burned with Fame Game. Doubtful if he will be back in 2016
14-THE UNITED STATES
Kicked off his campaign on Saturday 3 September so may be back for another crack. Seems to like Moonee Valley best though where he won last year’s Moonee Valley Cup beating Prince of Penzance.
Very disappointing you would have to say but so far this season has a win and a second from two starts in Melbourne this season.
Well back in the Cup but won the Sandown Cup at his next start.
Disappointing you would have to say. SIMPLY NO EXCUSES as far as I can see
