2019 Melbourne Cup Vow and Declare wins the Cup

2019 Melbourne Cup match was the most dramatic finish of Vow and Declare. There was a protest to change minor placings and jockeys got in deep trouble with the racing sheriffs. In an anxious finish that involved four horses, Vow and Declare, were trained in Melbourne by Danny O’Brien and they were ridden by Craig Williams. They took an inside run and put his head down when counting to win in a photo finish. Master of Reality was ready to give jockey Frankie Dettori his first win, which shoots clear at the 200m before failing to hold off the victor. The international raiders were nothing compared to the homegrown stayer, who flew the Australian flag. However, there were concerns for Rostropovich with several reports of a stern injury. Even though the game was of much entertainment, there were also claims of a robbery at the Melbourne Cup after Vow and Declare waved with an electrifying finish.

The 2019 Melbourne Cup

Jockey Craig Williams won the biggest race in Australia, and this was his 15th attempt. He fought back late to hand triumph to his trainer Danny O’Brien. However, interference from Master of Reality, which barred late-charging Il Paradiso from competing with Vow and Declare for the lead, drew an official protest from the race stewards which was sustained. Paradiso was then promoted from fourth to third. Prince of Arran was then promoted from third to second. Paradiso had attempted to move between the two leads but saw his opening vanish as Master of Reality cut across his path.
