They believed the work of Melbournian, William Edwards, to be superior in both design and workmanship to the English made trophy. No trophy was awarded to the Melbourne Cup winner for the next eight years. In Edward Fischer , an immigrant from Austria produced the first Australian-made trophy. It was an Etruscan shape with two handles. One side depicted a horse race with the grandstand and hill of Flemington in the background. The opposite side had the words "Melbourne Cup, " and the name of the winning horse.
The last Melbourne Cup trophy manufactured in England was made for the event. It was a chalice centred on a long base which had a horse at each end. The trophy awarded in ,  the first gold trophy, was a three-legged, three-armed rose bowl. The three-handled loving cup design was first awarded in In that year the Victorian Racing Club had commissioned James Steeth to design a trophy that would be in keeping with the prestige of the race, little realising that it would become the iconic Melbourne Cup still presented today.

Frederick Standish , member of the Victorian Turf Club and steward on the day of the first Cup,  was credited with forming the idea to hold a horse race and calling it the "Melbourne Cup". A large crowd of 4, men and women watched the race, although it has been suggested this was less than expected because of news reaching Melbourne of the death of explorers Burke and Wills  five days earlier on 2 November. Nevertheless, the attendance was the largest at Flemington on any day for the past two years, with the exception of the recently run Two Thousand Guinea Stakes.
The winner of this first Melbourne Cup race was a As a lessee de Mestre "owned" and was fully responsible for Archer during the lease. The inaugural Melbourne Cup of was an eventful affair when one horse bolted before the start, and three of the seventeen starters fell during the race, two of which died. Archer, a Sydney "outsider" who drew scant favour in the betting, spread-eagled the field and defeated the favourite, and Victorian champion, Mormon by six lengths.
Dismissed by the bookies, Archer took a lot of money away from Melbourne, 'refuelling interstate rivalry' and adding to the excitement of the Cup. However, newspaper archives of the day reveal that he had travelled south from Sydney to Melbourne on the steamboat City of Melbourne , together with de Mestre, and two of de Mestre's other horses Exeter and Inheritor. Archer travelled to Melbourne by steamboat again the following year to run in the second Melbourne Cup.
He defeated a field of twenty starters by eight lengths, a record that has never been beaten, and that was not matched for over years. Mormon again running second. Winning the Melbourne Cup twice was a feat not repeated until more than seventy years later when Peter Pan won the race in and , and winning the Melbourne Cup two years in a row was a feat not repeated until more than 30 years later when Rain Lover won in and Archer travelled to Melbourne by steamboat yet again the next year Despite his weight of 11 stone 4 pounds, Archer would have contested the third cup in , but due to a Victorian public holiday trainer Etienne de Mestre's telegraphed acceptance form arrived late, and Archer was scratched on a technicality.
In protest of this decision and in a show of solidarity, many of de Mestre's owners boycotted the third race and scratched their horses in sympathy. Two years later in two horses with the name Tim Whiffler ran in the Melbourne Cup. The year before in two horses with the same name, Falcon, also ran in the Melbourne Cup.
As early as , Cup day was a half-holiday in Melbourne for public servants and bank officials. Various businesses also closed at lunchtime. It took some years before the purpose of the declared holiday was acknowledged in the Victoria Government Gazette. The Gazette of 31 October announced that the following Thursday Cup Day be observed as a bank and civil public service holiday.
The Melbourne Cup was first run on a Tuesday in , the first Tuesday in that month. She was ridden in the Melbourne Cup by the tiny featherweight figure of jockey Peter St. In at the recorded age thirteen he was actually twelve, being 8 days short of his thirteenth birthday ,  Peter St.
Albans is also the youngest person ever to win a Melbourne Cup. Before 75, at Flemington Briseis, with St Albans in the saddle, comfortably won by 1 length in the biggest field of all time. Briseis, ridden by what one writer termed a mere child, in the Cup captured a rare double, the Victoria Race Club Derby and the Melbourne Cup. Shouts and hurrahs were heard, hats were thrown in the air and one excited individual fell on his back in the attempt to do a somersault.
The boy who rode the winner was carried around the pack and is the hero of the day," reported the "Australasian Sketcher" in Both Peter St. Albans and Briseis have now become racing legends, and Briseis is regarded as one of the greatest mares foaled in Australia. Briseis wasn't the only sensation surrounding the Melbourne Cup.
Two months before the event, on Saturday 9 September, the City of Melbourne sailed for Melbourne from Sydney with a cargo including 13 racehorses, many of whom were considered serious contenders for the Melbourne Cup. The following day the ship ran into a savage storm and was hit by several rogue waves, with Nemesis the winner of the AJC Metropolitan Handicap in Randwick, Sydney and favourite for the Cup, owned by John Moffat and Robin Hood another favourite, owned by Etienne de Mestre being among the 11 horses that were killed.
To the dismay and anger of the public, bookmakers, showing no feeling, presented a purse loaded with coins to the captain as token of their appreciation for his part in saving them many thousands of pounds in bets already laid on the favourites who had perished.
Perhaps they should have kept their money, however. The outsider Briseis comfortably won by 1 length in the biggest field of all time and is an extremely good time, so it is unlikely that the horses who perished could have beaten her. James White. In , as in previous years, De Mestre fielded more than one horse.
He entered the favourite Firebell owned by W. Cox who finished last, Chester owned by Hon. James White the previous year's winner who fell, and Calamia owned by de Mestre who, though less fancied, won easily  by two lengths. De Mestre's win with Calamia brought to 5 the number of Melbourne Cups he had won.
Bart Cummings, regarded as the best Australian horse trainer of all time, went on to win 12 Melbourne Cups to He had to be hidden away at Geelong before the race after an attempt was made to shoot him and only emerged an hour before the race time of the Cup. There are a few legends of the first Aboriginal jockey to ride in a Melbourne Cup.
It was believed to be John Cutts who won the first and second cups in and riding Archer. He was reputedly an Aboriginal stockman born in the area where Archer was trained but was actually John 'Cutts' Dillon, the son of a Sydney clerk, a jockey who rode for many trainers in his long career, and who was one of the best known, best-liked and most respected jockeys in New South Wales.
Albans was the first Aboriginal jockey to win the cup, on Briseis in Because St. Albans was not quite 13 years old, the jockey was too young to ride in the cup. Thus, to allow him to race Briseis in the Cup, it was argued his birthdate and parents were unknown, and from this, the legend of him being Aboriginal grew.
The race has undergone several alterations in recent years, the most visible being the entry of many foreign-trained horses. Most have failed to cope with the conditions; the three successful "foreign raids" include two by Irish trainer Dermot K. Weld successful in and ,  and one in  by Katsumi Yoshida of Japan 's renowned Yoshida racing and breeding family.
The attraction for foreigners to compete was, primarily, the low-profile change to the new "quality handicap" weighting system. The Melbourne Cup was won by Comedy King, the first foreign bred horse to do so. The Melbourne Cup was won by trainer Mrs. Allan McDonald , who conditioned Catalogue.
Mrs McDonald was a successful trainer in New Zealand,  however, at the time women were not allowed to compete as trainers in Australia so her husband's name was officially recorded as the winning trainer. She also won the Caulfield Cup , a 2,metre race also held in Melbourne, and therefore has won the "Cups Double". Maree Lyndon became the first female to ride in the Melbourne Cup, when she partnered Argonaut Style in , in which she ran second last in the 21 horse field.
In , Makybe Diva   became the first mare to win two cups, and also the first horse to win with different trainers, after David Hall moved to Hong Kong and transferred her to the Lee Freedman stables.
The Melbourne Cup was held before a crowd of , Makybe Diva made history by becoming the only horse to win the race three times. Trainer Lee Freedman said after the race, "Go and find the youngest child on the course because that's the only person here who will have a chance of seeing this happen again in their lifetime. Due to the Australian equine influenza outbreak , believed to have been started by a horse brought into Australia from Japan, neither Delta Blues nor Pop Rock participated in the Melbourne Cup.
Both horses had been stabled in Japan. Leica Falcon was ordained as the new staying star of Australian racing in when he ran fourth in both the Caulfield Cup and in Makybe Diva's famous third Melbourne Cup victory. But serious leg injuries saw the horse not race for another 20 months.

Here are some of the most popular exotic wagers in the Melbourne Cup: Melbourne Cup Quinella — A punter must pick predict the top two winners of the race in any order for the wager to win.
Punters usually take the top two favourites when making these bets, but there are many other combinations that punters can choose from. Box Quinella — Punters pick more than two horses to win first or second in the race. In effect, a box quinella is just multiple quinella bets, but is an easier way to cover every combination of your preferred runners.
These bets are easiest to make at an online betting sites, where you can quickly get help from support staff if you need it. Melbourne Cup Exacta — Like the quinella, punters must pick two horses to run first and second, but in exact finishing order. The exacta is harder to pick than a quinella, with the advantage that it pays out significantly better. Box Exacta — Just as with the box quinella, the box exacta allows punters to choose a field of 2 or more horses, and it covers every exacta combination of those horses.
Melbourne Cup Trifecta — Punters pick the first three finishers in exact order. It is quite an achievement to pick the Melbourne Cup Trifecta outright, so most punters go with a box trifecta instead. Box Trifecta — Punters pick any number of horses from 3 to the field limit, and then cover every trifecta combination of those runners.
Melbourne Cup First Four — Punters pick the first four finishers in exact order. Again, getting this right is hard, so punters usually take this as a box bet.

One of the big lead-up races to the Melbourne Cup every year is the Caulfield Cup - and this year, it was won by one of the country's most popular horses. She's a sensational mare. Take a look at the final stages below. Carrying 61kg, Ashrun missed the jump and ended up last on the rails, with a slow pace doing him no favours. Kerrin McEvoy managed to find clear air at the top of the straight and the five-year-old stallion proved just strong enough to run down Sound on the line. Last on the fence, a massive win from Ashrun.

Picking just two options will provide the best odds but will be a harder bet to win. Exacta — Similar to the Quinella, the Exacta is also the first two runners but it must be picked in the exact finishing order. Trifecta — The trifecta is the most popular betting option as it provides massive odds if successful. A boxed trifecta is the best option as it allows a choice of multiple runners.
