Written 11 months ago by Newsroom

Joseph O’Brien’s Rekindling led home an Irish 1-2-3 in the prestigious Melbourne Cup at Flemington this morning.

The 24 year old’s horse came from behind to beat Johannes Vermeer trained by his dad Aidan O’Brien.

Another Irish horse, Max Dynamite, the runner up from two years ago, was third for trainer Willie Mullins.

O’Brien says it was a team effort.
