    What a race though! Gotta love a photo finish - nothing gets the heart racing more! Nearly thought the little grey had popped it hehe

    What a brilliant finish! I'm all shaky xD Bart Cummings is amazing, if he isn't the best trainer that ever was, I don't know who is. Hmpf to Septemus, that is what they get for being all cocky!

    I was in such a dilema with the photo finish, on one hand I wanted Bauer to win as I had him in the sweep but then I wanted Bart Cummings to win too! so was a win win for me :D

    Great race :)*

    Hopefully Honolulu is ok :( Gallopin failed to finish but luckily it was because he started to choke (which was resolved) rather than breaking down.

    Darn it I put on my trifecta Barbacius, Profound Beauty and Mad Rush
    Then I thought I'll back Barts to horses becuase they are always dangerous in the Cup

    I stuffed up and backed Bart and his son's horse and not Viewed Bum.

    Honalulu walked across the line but here was one that failed to finish.
    It's name is Gallopin.
    The goods news is it didn't break down. It choked down about 1200 metres out.

    Editted to say.....
    Oops, was too slow.
    Mirawee types faster than me. !
