In the 2009 Melbourne Cup, Mark Kavanagh’s soon-to-be star Shocking claimed an upset win after starting at $10. Aside from the winner it was an international result as Crime Scene ($41) and Mourilyan ($21) took out the placings.

Shocking is back to defend his title in the 2010 Melbourne Cup and is the current favourite to make it successive wins in this iconic race, so check out his odds at Luxbet today!

2005 Melbourne Cup Winner – Makybe Diva


In 2005 glamour mare Makybe Diva became the first horse in history to win three successive Melbourne Cups. What made her 2005 Melbourne Cup victory even more impressive was the fact she was backing up from a Cox Plate win.

This year Bart Cummings’ superstar So You Think is attempting to become the first horse since Makybe Diva to take out the Cox Plate / Melbourne Cup double. He’s completed the first leg and is high up the Melbourne Cup odds, so get behind him at a great price through Luxbet now!

Kingston Rule’s incredible Melbourne Cup record still stands today.

1960 Melbourne Cup Winner – Hi Jinx

The 1960 Melbourne Cup was the 100th running of this iconic race, and it was an upset result for the Centenary Melbourne Cup as the 50/1 Hi Jinx claimed victory over Howsie.
