Almandin has won a thrilling Melbourne Cup, beating Heartbreak City by a nose.
The two were neck and neck over the last 200 metres, surging clear of favourite Hartnell, who finished third.
But the Lloyd Williams-owned horse just pipped it at the finish.
It is the second Melbourne Cup win for jockey Kerrin McEvoy.
“How lucky am I mate?” said McEvoy after the race on Channel 7.
Who was our local winner? Jessica Charles from Gladstone won the Gladstone News ‘Pick a winner’ competition. Congrats on lucky #17, Jess
