WINNER 2014 Melbourne Cup - PROTECTIONIST
The race was run under cloudy and slightly overcast: Tuesday 4th November 2014
Protectionist won the 154th Melbourne Cup at Flemington.
German stayer Protectionist simply ran away from his rivals to win the $6.2 million Melbourne Cup by an easy four lengths under star international jockey Ryan Moore.
Second home - for the third time in his illustrious career - was English trained warhorse Red Cadeaux, piloted by French rider Gerald Mosse. Sydney-trained ex-New Zealander Who Shot Thebarman, partnered by Glen Boss - the man forever associated with triple winner Makybe Diva - came in third.
