The Melbourne Cup is more than just a prestigious horse race; it's a cultural phenomenon that captures the attention of millions across Australia and New Zealand. While the thundering hooves and cheering crowds define the day, there's a story within the data waiting to be told.
At Rally, we’re always being fascinated by the narratives that numbers can weave. With the Melbourne Cup about to be run, we spent the morning of the big day exploring historic winners and seeing what we could uncover about this storied race. The result? An interactive dashboard that offers a window into the last 35 years of Melbourne Cup triumphs.
Here's what the data trotted out:
The dashboard is more than a mere presentation; it's an exploration that invites you to interact, discover, and engage with the Melbourne Cup's rich history. And as for Rally? We’re searching for that elusive Australian gelding, not the favourite, with a jockey weighing in at 53.6kgs, ideally drawn at barrier 3 or 9. We’ll take an Irish one to though. Three of their four wins came on tracks rated good.
So, whether you're a racing aficionado or a data enthusiast, we encourage you to delve into the dashboard and uncover your insights. Who knows, you might just find the winning formula for the next Melbourne Cup.
Feel free to explore the interactive Melbourne Cup Winners Dashboard.
