What a day, as Kerrin McEvoy did it again to win the Melbourne Cup for a third time!
Streaky Bay’s favourite son followed his race victories in 2000 and 2016 with a superb ride on the home straight with inexperienced English horse Cross Counter to take the glory one more time.
The ‘race that stops a nation’ had people glued to their television screens across the country, including on the West Coast.
There were plenty watching the race in Ceduna at the Ceduna Foreshore Hotel Motel, with patrons in their best Melbourne Cup attire and others studying the form guide to pick a last minute winner.
Others were enjoying cup day at the Wirrulla Hotel.
The region was able to celebrate another McEvoy success, with a group from Streaky Bay also taking over at Flemington Racecourse.
