My favourite all time Melbourne Cup…

Guessing nobody really cares however for what it’s worth this is my all time favourite Melbourne Cup moment for a couple of reasons…

The tragic events the week prior surrounding Jason Oliver & the pressure on Damien who had a shocker of a Derby Day.

The call, Wayne Wilson was a legend of a racecaller, he & Ian Craig seemed to be born to call, they just had the right voices. Plenty knocked Wayne for not calling the placegetters over the line however the moment was huge & he captured the theatre of it all perfectly. Surely a few seconds wait for the final results was secondary.

Enjoy…!

PS apologies for the quality
