The Melbourne Cup is the biggest and most anticipated horse racing event on the Australian calendar. Every year, this race manages to attract a high quality field from around the world, who compete for $6.2 million worth of prize money. The past winners list for the Melbourne Cup reads like a who’s who of Australian horse racing, with international horses also starting to have an impact on the “race that stops a nation.”

Some of the most famous winners of the Melbourne Cup include inaugural champion Archer who won the first two events, the legendary Phar Lap, and the sole triple Melbourne Cup winner between 2003-05, Makybe Diva. However, the list certainly does not stop there, with other notable Melbourne Cup winners including Carbine in 1890, Peter Pan in 1932 & 1934, Comic Court in 1951, Rising Fast in 1954, Galilee in 1966, Rain Lover in 1968 & 1969, Kiwi in 1983, Vintage Crop in 1993, Saintly in 1996, and Might And Power in 1997.

International horses have started to have a big impact on the Melbourne Cup, which is now the richest handicap event in the entire world. Irish horse Vintage Crop won the Cup in 1993, with trainer Dermot K Weld returning to win another Melbourne Cup with European horse Media Puzzle in 2002. Japanese horse Delta Blues also won the event in 2006, with the two most recent Melbourne Cup winners, Americain in 2010 and Dunaden in 2011, both prepared in France.
