With Brew, I had a good look around the last 100m and couldn’t be­lieve it.

I was able to re­ally soak up the mo­ment. It was a sur­real feel­ing and I still remember stand­ing up and tak­ing in the whole crowd re­ac­tion. I was only 20 at the time, so it was all a bit of shock more than any­thing.

When I won my sec­ond Mel­bourne Cup, it re­ally sunk in for me be­cause it had been 16 years be­tween wins and you get an ap­pre­ci­a­tion of what is re­quired to win this race and the ef­fort you need to put in.

I hope I don’t have to wait an­other 16 years to win it again.
