Some jockeys are built for the big time, and Glen Boss is one who most definitely fits that bill. But how many times has he won the Melbourne Cup?
Boss is perhaps best remembered for his three consecutive Melbourne Cup wins aboard Makybe Diva from 2003 to 2005. To date, he is yet to win the great race with any other horse.
But his achievements aren’t limited to the first Tuesday in November. Boss has won the Cox Plate four times, while he has also tasted victory in the Golden Slipper, Newmarket Handicap, Epsom Handicap and several other majors of Australian racing.
