First Australian-Bred Wins 2019 Melbourne Cup

Vow and Declare from Australia wins the 2019 Melbourne Cup.

Vow And Declare is the first Australian-bred winner of the Melbourne Cup since  2009.

It’s trainer Danny O’Brien’s first cup win and jockey Craig Williams’ first win in his 15th ride in the race.

“Tremendous training effort from Danny O’Brien and his team. I feel very privileged. I grew up watching races, dreamt of these occasions like this but I can’t do it without my team around me,” said the winning jockey, The Guardian reported.

“Vow And Declare gave me a wonderful ride. I wasn’t given any instructions. I want to savour the moment. Thanks to all the people who turned out today.”
