WINNER 2015 Melbourne Cup - PRINCE OF PENZANCE (19)
The race was run on Tuesday 3rd November 2015 at 3;20pm.
Prince Of Penzance won the 155th Melbourne Cup at Flemington.
A Female jockey has at last won the Melbourne Cup. Two female trainers have led in the winner and plenty of mares have won. But Michelle Payne, a 30-year-old from a famous racing family, has at last become the first woman to sit atop the winner as it flashed past the Flemington winning post.
For the record, the victorious horse was the 100-1 shot Prince of Penzance, whose form was nowhere near as bad as all that. But this race will be remembered for a person rather than a horse, and that person is of course Michelle Payne.
Payne wore silks which were purple, green and white. In a remarkable coincidence, these are the colours which were worn by the Suffragettes in England, a historical movement which actively campaigned for the right of women to vote.
