Can Mount Athos Climb To New Heights In Melbourne Cup 2013?

Mount Athos will have to contend with a wide barrier when he runs in the $6 million Melbourne Cup at Flemington this Tuesday November 5, 2013.

The seven-year-old ran an impressive fifth in last year’s Melbourne Cup, despite missing the start and suffering heavy interference during the race.

Mount Athos has won eight of his 26 race starts and has earned close to $500,000 in prize money.
