Jockey Kerrin McEvoy believes Cross Counter will race in next year’s Melbourne Cup
Melbourne Cup-winning jockey Kerrin McEvoy says his victory has finally sunk in, three days after the great race was run.
Cross Counter won this year’s rain-drenched Cup, shocking spectators in a close finish.
It’s the first Melbourne Cup win for international horse racing giant Godolphin, who has been chasing the title for over a decade.
Tuesday also saw jockey Kerrin McEvoy become the first rider to complete the Everest-Cup double.
He tells Chris Smith the win has finally sunk in.
“It’s been a bit of a busy week,” he says.
“Tuesday was a very special day and a day I’ll never forget.”
McEvoy also reveals he thinks Cross Counter will compete in next year’s Cup.
“He’s only a young horse.
“He might come back here and try to regain his title.”
