WINNER 2009 Melbourne Cup - SHOCKING (21)Tuesday 3rd November 2009 SHOCKING won the $5.5 million Melbourne Cup at Flemington, giving trainer Mark Kavanaugh his first victory in the race.
SHOCKING and international raider CRIME SCENE pulled away from the pack in the straight and had the race between them before the four-year-old SHOCKING put his head in front.
After an agonizingly narrow loss last year, Corey Brown broke through for his first Melbourne Cup win on SHOCKING.
Another international, MOURILYAN ran on late for third.
