Melbourne Cup 2018: Where Your Horse Finished
Every horse, every finishing position.
This is where your horse finished in the 2018 Melbourne Cup, what itz prizemoney was, and what its jockey said.
1. Cross Counter (winning prizemoney $4 million)
I was back a bit further than I wanted. I knew that I was full of running -- I was on the back of Yucatan. He seemed to be empty, Yucatan. At the 400, I said that I had to go my own way, and I was full of running. At the furlong I thought ‘mate, is this happening again?’ -- Kerrin McEvoy.
2. Marmelo ($1 million)
Disappointed but proud of the horse and congratulations to Hughie (the trainer) for bringing him over in such good order -- Hugh Bowman.
3. A Prince Of Arran ($500,000)
He’s all heart the horse. I couldn’t have wished for a better run. I’ve got a top chance for next year and I believe if he didn’t run on Saturday he would have won -- Michael Walker
4. Finche ($250,000)
Excellent run. I think if it was a firmer track he might have gone close -- Zac Purton
5. Rostropovich ($175,000)
Ran very well, very pleased with him -- Wayne Lordan
6. Youngstar ($150,000)
I was delighted with her performance, she was the only female in the field. We had a great run in the race, I wouldn’t change anything bar the result. It will just season her up and make her harder for when she comes back. She’s a fair horse and ran for Australasia really proudly -- Craig Williams
7. Sir Charles Road ($150,000)
Super effort. Had a splendid run in transit, probably missing the run in the Caulfield Cup, lacked a little bit of fitness but a great run -- Dwayne Dunn.
8. Best Solution ($150,000)
Slowly away and we were playing catch up from there. Too far back -- Pat Cosgrave
9. Muntahaa ($150,000)
He didn’t really travel, thought he’d be a bit keener than what he was. The ground had maybe gone a bit too soft for him as well -- Jim Crowley
10. Ventura Storm ($150,000)
He gave it his all, we had a nice run. He just doesn’t stay two miles -- Mark Zahra
11. Yucatan ($150,000)
He worked into a nice spot from the gate, travelled really nicely but I felt he just didn’t stay the two miles - James McDonald
12. Nakeeta ($150,000)
He gave me a lovely ride throughout. I was still travelling from the 600 to the 400m, it was a gallant effort -- Regan Bayliss
He ran great. The slow speed worked against him but he worked home really well -- Damian Lane
14. Chestnut Coat
He had an ideal run through the race, he tried hard and did his best -- Yuga Kawada
15. Vengeur Masque
I reckon the soft track saw him out today over 3200m -- Patrick Moloney
16. Magic Circle
I was disappointed. He had a great run from the barrier but he never gave me a kick at all -- Corey Brown
17. Who Shot Thebarman
He’s getting on now and probably didn’t let down to the best of his ability -- Ben Melham
18. Sound Check
I thought he ran well considering he got caught wide going around the first corner and had to do a lot of work. He was pretty honest to the line -- Jordan Childs.
It was a great thrill winning the Geelong Cup but two miles was just too far for him today -- Stephen Baster
20. Ace High
Had to work from a wide gate. He was comfortable but struggled to run the trip -- Tye Angland
He just wasn’t good enough. Someone just said to me ‘well done Kerrin’ so I feel like I did win -- Tommy Berry
We were behind the horse that had an accident in the run (The Cliffsofmoher) and that put paid to our chances -- Glyn Schofield
23. Red Cardinal
He just raced a little bit keen on the slow pace and when it was time to go, he didn’t have enough air to finish it off -- Damien Oliver
24. The Cliffsofmoher (failed to finish, later euthanised.)
