To put the record straight, the 2005 Melbourne Cup winner was the immortal Makybe Diva. It was the last of her three Melbourne Cups which will forever etch her name in the record books as the only horse to have won three Melbourne Cups (2003, 2004 & 2005); and her jockey Glen Boss is the first jockey to have won the race three years in a row.
