2010 Geelong Cup Results

October 20th, 2010

The 2010 Geelong Cup results saw Americain rocket down the home straight to take the win, in his first run in Australia.

The French horse’s early Melbourne Cup odds will likely shorten dramatically now, as he won in stunning fashion despite many set backs in getting to the front of the pack. This Geelong Cup win also extends Americain’s win streak to 4 races in a row.

Coming in second was the highly favoured Moudre. While Moudre did put in a great performance coming home, he still had many punters cursing his name at the finish line as he couldn’t keep ahead of Americain.

Third place went to Exceptionally, another prospect with a lot of confidence behind him going into the race. While he did not pick up a win, this run will likely restore the faith of punters in him, which he lost after a few bad runs earlier in the season.
