Peter St. Albans won the 1876 Melbourne Cup riding Briseis at only eleven years old. He was able to pull off the feat after the original jockey meant to ride the horse couldn’t make the featherweight.
2. The horse that won the first Melbourne Cup also won the second
Australian Thoroughbred named Archer has the honour of winning the first two

Despite this feat, he was only added to the Australian Hall of Fame in 2017, more than 150 years since he first won.
3. Archer holds the slowest Melbourne Cup time
While he did
win the Melbourne Cup, he took his time doing it. With a time of 3:52, he holds
the slowest win time in the race’s history.
4. Only five horses have won the Melbourne Cup more than once
Winning the Melbourne Cup is a feat that most horses will never achieve, but some have managed to do it more than once, much to the chagrin of their competition. These horses are Archer, Peter Pan, Rain Lover, Think Big and Makybe Diva.

7. Only three fillies have won the Melbourne Cup
Melbourne Cup is often seen as a race for the world’s best stallions, but fillies
(female horses younger then four years old) have had their time in the
limelight as well. To date, three fillies have won the Melbourne Cup.
8. Makybe Diva is the only horse to win three Melbourne Cups
most famous modern Melbourne Cup winner, Makybe Diva is one of the greatest
horses in Australian racing circles. She is the only horse to have won three
Melbourne Cups (2003, 2004 and 2005), and at the time of her retirement, had
the most race winnings of any Australian horse.
Maykbe Diva –
9. New Zealand likes the Melbourne Cup too
many rivalries with our kiwi neighbours, it seems both nations stop to watch
the race, with many people in NZ watching online or on their TV.
10. 2018 saw the lowest attendance
Melbourne Cups see 100,000 people or more head to the track, last year only
83,471 decided to attend. This is likely due to the rainy weather that made
heading out in your best outfit rather unappealing. Hopefully 2019 will see
more people and more fashion on the track.
