I will offer a half share of $20 worth of trifectas on the Cup for the first forum member to post the correct answer to these 4 questions.

The 4th question is a toughie, so if no correct answers we will have a countback.

Q: Who was the last Australian trained horse to place in both the Caulfield Cup and Melbourne Cup in the same year.

Q. When was the last year that all 3 placegetters in the Caulfield Cup did not start in the same year's Melbourne Cup

Q. Out of the 52 horses that have filled the placings in Caulfield Cups this century, how many have placed in the same year's Melbourne Cup?

Q. 4 horses have won the "City Tatts" Tattersall's Cup (the one run in October over 2400m), and have also been placed in the Melbourne Cup - not necessarily the same year. Name them.

Thanks fours but really haven't been anywhere.   :biggrin:

As was flagged I needed a bit of a break from the forum after contributing and running comps for 13 years, and to devote more time to some work projects I've been running  :sweat:
