Tagus Wins Bundaberg Distilling Stakes On 2010 Melbourne Cup Day

In a shockingly dominant performance, Tagus topped the Bundaberg Distilling Stakes results to win on Melbourne Cup Day.

While his last two starts were third place finishes that made it hard to believe in Tagus for a win, he proved the doubters wrong with a stunning run home that saw him look set for victory from more than 200 metres out.

Second in the Bundaberg Distilling Stakes finishing order was Right Fong, another unexpected performer.

Third was Hidden Wonder, though far back from the winner in a run that did not disappoint, but hardly impressed.
