RECAP: 2015 Melbourne Cup at Flemington racecourse | 3AW Radio

3AW broadcast live from Flemington for the 2015 Melbourne Cup from the moment gates open until 6pm.

Recap the highlights of the day’s action here.

THE HAT EVERYONE’S TALKING ABOUT

Pat Panetta isn’t just in the Birdcage – he’s wearing it!

MICHELLE’S PREDICTION

Winning jockey Michelle Payne told Sports Today she knew she would win the Cup two years ago.

A HUMBLE CELEBRATION

Forget the champagne, Paddy Payne, father of winning jockey Michelle, has revealed he will celebrate the win with an avocado sandwich!

RED CADEAUX INJURED

Fan favourite Red Cadeaux suffered a suspected fetlock injury late in the race.

3AW Sport reporter Alexandra Factor gave Tom Elliott and update on the popular horse’s condition:

‘THE FORGOTTEN HORSE’

Co-owner of Prince Of Penzance Sam Brown told Tom Elliott he ‘never had any doubts’ about his stayer’s chances.

IT’S A BOILOVER!

Prince Of Penzance has won the Melbourne Cup in a major upset. 

Michelle Payne becomes the first female jockey to win the Cup.

TJ IS OFF AND RUNNING

LEAVE THE WHITE SHOES AT HOME

UK fashion guru Jeff Banks dropped in to give Ross and John some last minute fashion advice (and a bout of inadequacy).

And he gave Aussie men a whack.

‘I’ve never understood the obsession with light-coloured shoes with dark suits in Australia.

‘It’s not good. Thankfully I only saw one man wearing them on Derby Day.’

TRIMMING THE FIELD

Tipping a winner is tough, but it gets a lot easier if you can eliminate half the field.

Step up, Sam ‘Scoop’ McClure.

He’s put he neck on the line and tipped the 10 horses who WON’T win the Melbourne Cup.

Is he a genius or too cute by half? Time will tell…
