2008 Melbourne Cup Result
Viewed snatched victory by a nose from the Luca Cumani trained Bauer in the 2008 Melbourne Cup. Bauer went off a 20/1 shot in the Melbourne Cup betting despite having won the the Geelong Cup a few weeks earlier and finished like a train.
It wasn't enough though to deny the champion Melbourne Cup trainer Bart Cummings a twelfth win in the race. Viewed goes again in 2009 and is amongst the favourites in the betting.
