The remarkable story of the 2002 Melbourne Cup, and Damien Oliver's triump on Media Puzzle.The Melbourne Cup is more than a horse race, it is part of Australian culture and folklore, born out of the heady gold rush days of the 1860's.
The Melbourne Cup is a race built on endeavour, endurance and emotion, but few Cups have been influenced by the events that surrounded Media Puzzle's win in 2002.
And when Oliver rose in the stirrups and kissed skyward, a nation, touched by a grieving Oliver's courage to ride so soon after the death of his jockey brother Jason in a horrific track fall, was swept up in one of the most stirring moments in Australian sporting history.
