The Race of Dreams: Rain Lover

Two in a row in 1968 and 1969

Rain Lover became the first horse in more than a century to win consecutive Melbourne Cups. Mick Robins was a Broken Hill miner and hobby trainer and defeated the powerhouse stables at the time to win not only two Melbourne Cups but a VRC Mackinnon Stakes, VRC Queen Elizabeth Stakes and many more feature races.

Jim Johnson was the jockey in both years.
