Melbourne Cup 2019 Winners Vow and Declare with Results
Vow and Declare took the Melbourne Cup even though the odds were not in their favour. The horse surprised punters by taking the first position with jockey Craig Williams. This is his first cup win and boy was he shocked. Vow and Declare went in front of Cross Counter and Mer De Glace who were the favourites.
As the race progressed Il Paradiso had interference from Master of Reality in the initial 100m. Master of Reality ended in third position. Vow and Declare first place Melbourne Cup 2019 win could not be disputed.
Vow and Declare Make Australia Proud
Most of the predictions were siding with international horses but an Aussie took the cup. Vow and Declare weighs 52kg and began on barrier 21, one of the worst places to start. Williams’ pushed through even with such circumstance. Professional bettors thought that he would finish in a good place but never to win after the Caulfield Cup.
Cross Counter didn’t take a spot in the top six and likely lost a couple of punters along the way. Constantinople can’t even be seen on the list. Prince of Arran, a new horse was not in the list of the top ten predictions. We can’t deny that the Melbourne Cup was entertaining!
