Rekindling became the first international Melbourne Cup winner to salute first-up with a previous Australian start since Vintage Crop (1993) and was prepared by 24-year-old Joseph O’Brien whose father Aidan prepared the runner-up Johannes Vermeer. The 2017 Melbourne Cup Trifecta was rounded out by the William Mullins-trained Max Dynamite who was runner-up in the 2015 edition of the classic.
