The Melbourne Cup is truly "the race that stops a nation. Since its inception, great stories have emerged from this famous horse race, run each year on the first Tuesday in November, but none had a more extraordinary effect on the entire nation than the running of the 2002 Melbourne Cup.In the wake of the Bali bombings less than three weeks earlier, Australians were seeking refuge in their most cherished tradition - The Cup. But a grieving jockey's courage in the face of his own loss, gave his countrymen far more than just a great race.
