WINNER 2019 Melbourne Cup - VOW AND DECLARE (21)
The race was run on Tuesday 5th November 2019.
The 2019 Melbourne Cup has been run and won by Vow And Declare.
It is the first win for jockey Craig Williams.
For trainer Danny O'Brien, it is the 'David and Goliath' victory he said he was hoping to pull off.
The local hope pipped the field in a thrilling finish to the race that stops the nation.
A protest on behalf of Il Paradiso against Master Of Reality sparked high-drama soon after the race.
Master Of Reality crossed the line second but was ruled to have interfered with Il Paradiso. As a result, Prince Of Arran was promoted from third to second, Il Paradiso was promoted from fourth to third and Master Of Reality was relegated from second to fourth.
