Melbourne Cup comes to school


On Monday the 2013 Emirates Melbourne Cup Tour made a stop at Quilpie State College. 

Former jockey John Marshall spoke to the students about the Melbourne Cup.    Marshall rode a memorable race aboard Rogan Josh to claim Melbourne Cup victory in 1999, partnering with Bart Cummings to deliver the ‘Cup’s King’ his eleventh Cup victory.

Afterwards, students and staff were provided with an opportunity to have their photo taken holding the $175,000 cup.
