2005 Melbourne Cup Result
At the age of seven the Lee Freedman trained Makybe Diva wrote herself into the history books by winning her third successive Melbourne Cup in front of a bumper crowd at Flemington Racecourse.
In almost identical style to her win in 2004 she hit the front one furlong from home and stayed on strongly to beat On A Jeune comfortably into second by one and a quarter lengths.
