The Saga of 121 Melbourne Cups with Results and Statistics. Over the years the Cup has unfolded innumerable stories of joy and sorrow, of fortunes won and lost, the bargains and the costly failures, ugly ducklings...and slow coaches who have defied all reasoning, great riding and training feats, millions spent in trying to breed Cup winners, secret gallops, dream horses, whip incidents, allegations of jockey rings...they're all here.
