Gold Trip has won the 2022 Melbourne Cup.
In the 162nd running of the great horse race just under 80,000 spectators braved cold conditions in Melbourne.
Gold Trip won the race by two lengths and in the process won $4million. Emissary finished second and High Emocean was third.
Pre race favourite Deauville Legend was fourth, while highly fancied runner Realm of Flowers was fifth.
Gold Trip did it the hard way, taking the lead with more than 300m to run before Emissary looked to be making a challenge of it with 150m to go.
