Blake Shinn, 21, steers Viewed to one of the narrowest victories on record, edging out Irish stayer Bauer by 0.1 lengths. The 2008 edition marked 50 years since Cummings had saddled up his first Melbourne Cup runner. (Glen Boss/David Hall) Makybe Diva wins her first of a record three Melbourne Cups. David Hall trains the super mare to her first victory in the race, before handing over the reins to Lee Freedman the following year after taking up a position in Hong Kong.
Makybe Diva carries just 51kg in the 2003 edition, before lumping a record weight for mares, with 58kg, in her third win two years later.
