Melbourne Cup winner – Ambition Achieved!

It has long been an ambition of Stephen’s to purchase a Melbourne Cup winner. He came frustratingly close with Mount Athos who was widely considered an unlucky loser when running in the race in 2012 and nearly made amends when finishing 3rd in the race in 2013. So it was with great delight to watch Almandin get up in the final strides to claim victory in this years race. He was purchased privately by Stephen for owner Lloyd Williams, two years ago from Germany.
