How many Melbourne Cups has Luke Currie won?

Jockey Luke Currie

How many times has Luke Currie won the Melbourne Cup? We will answer that question and consider his chances of taking out Australia’s most famous race in 2021.

Luke Currie’s Melbourne Cup record

Currie is a multiple Group 1 winner, with one of his best-known results coming aboard Makybe Diva in the 2002 VRC Queen Elizabeth Stakes, but he is yet to taste victory in the Melbourne Cup. Can he change that this year?

Which horse is Luke Currie riding in the 2021 Melbourne Cup?

Currie has the job on Persan, who ran fifth in the 2020 Melbourne Cup. The five-year-old gelding has gone up 2kg in the weights this year to 53kg, so he will need to find something to figure in the finish this time. He ran 5.25 lengths off Incentivise in both the Turnbull Stakes (7th) and Caulfield Cup (3rd), and it is hard to see him closing that gap this Tuesday to what is one of the hottest Melbourne Cup favourites in years.
