The gelding won the 1916 Melbourne Cup by over 2 lengths and just missed the race record by half a second. He became the second New Zealand horse to win the Melbourne Cup.

This year’s race was delayed until the following Saturday due to extreme rain. On the day, Sasanof’s owner, M. Stead sold a third of the horse to his good friend, E. S. Luttrell so that his friend could enjoy the winning experience.

Prize money: £9,252

About:

In 1932 The Sydney Mail voted Poitrel as the best stayer for the past 50 years. According to the paper, from a mile and a half upwards Poitrel raced with the best finishing efforts. At the 1920 Melbourne Cup Poitrel carried 10 stone to the finishing post and won, being one of only three horses to achieve this victory. His stable mate Erasmus was in front, until the last half furlong when Poitrel shot through to win.

Interestingly enough, as a yearling in 1916, Poitrel failed to reach his reserve of 300 guineas at a sale and it wasn’t until he was three years old that the horse showed his true potential.
