2009 Melbourne Cup Results

The 2009 Melbourne Cup results have been decided, leaving us with the 4-year-old Shocking as our victor. Shocking earned his way into the race that stops a nation with a win in the Group 3 Lexus Stakes. While this seemed an unlikely point of entry for a Melbourne Cup champion, Shocking proved to have incredible staying power on the day.

Coming in second just three quarters of a length behind was Crime Scene, with Mourilyan finishing in third about two lengths back. The 2009 Melbourne Cup results were quite unexpected, as Alcopop, Efficient and Viewed were the strong favourites with Shocking an afterthought at $8.50.

The unexpected nature of the 2009 Melbourne Cup results is truly underline by the Melbourne Cup trifecta payouts, which paid out at over $9,000 per dollar wagered! To get in on the action for the 2010 Melbourne Cup, sign up for a Ladbrokes.com.au account today.
