One of the best places to go for the Melbourne Cup Results is right here at, or to see how you Melbourne Cup bets paid head to our preferred bookmaker –

Past Melbourne Cup Results

Looking over past Melbourne Cup results can be useful for betting purposes, but you need to look deeper than just who finished first. The place finishers also matter as they may return in later years to have more success or to place again. Remember, a horse that you can rely on to finish near the front of the pack is a horse you want to have in your Melbourne Cup First Four box bet.

The trick to using past Melbourne Cup results to help your betting is to avoid just looking at the Cup results. While the Melbourne Cup is a standalone event that means an easy afternoon at work for many people, it is actually the peak of a long lead up period of racing. The winners and placegetters of a handful of lead up races have tended to finish well in the Cup, and knowledge of which races to watch can give you clues for your Melbourne Cup betting.

Melbourne Cup Winners

While you shouldn’t just focus on the winners when looking at past Melbourne Cup results to help your betting, Melbourne Cup winners are certainly worth watching in the future.

Melbourne Cup winners don’t just top the Melbourne Cup results – they go on to perform well in other major races as well. While not every champion has continued to have a successful career after their Cup win, it is usual that a gelding or mare will continue to race for some time. A full male horse is less likely to continue, however, as they can profitably be put to stud on the Melbourne Cup win alone.
