A new winner will be crowned at this year’s Melbourne Cup Horse race as last year’s winner Protectionist will not be taking part.
Grants Waterhouse Betting operations Manager Vijay Kumar Sundar confirms this as last year’s winner has pulled out due to injury.
“Last year’s Melbourne Cup winner Protectionist is not running because of bone injuries so the owners and trainers have decided to pull him out.”
The Melbourne Cup has a prize purse of more than 9.4 million dollars.
The race takes place at 5pm next Tuesday and you can watch it live on FBC TV.
