The Melbourne Cup has been run and decided by photo, and 34-1 chance Viewed held off a blinding finish from Bauer to win the 12th Melbourne Cup for trainer Bart Cummings. The next best for any trainer is five. That's just ridiculous.
All the highly fancied international horses set off at a furious pace and faded badly. Maybe this race isn't destined to be dominated every year by the expensive imports.
