He was doing a "victory punch" well before the line.

Be interesting to know how much extra ground she covered being 3 / 4 wide most of the trip.

See the picture directly above maxie. 

 2074m, she ran 8m more than HUMIDOR or 2.66len approx

I watched most of the day on real TV , and there seemed to be a lady in a tight red dress, who spent all day fussing around in that little annex they had set up, just next to the winners stall.  Every time the camera covered that spot, there she was , setting trohpys out, and moving them around, and digging "stuff " ( I presume rugs etc, ) out of under shelves.  I thought she must be in charge of getting all the trophys and what-not correct for presentations.  As much time as she spent fussing about , its stunning they managed to get the rugs so wrong !!  On a massive day like last Sat, with the world watching, with what seemed to be a person dedicated to tropyhs etc, how could they get it so wrong !!  Didnt anyone even notice when Blondie wore the wrong rug ???Wacko

Yeah that is a thanks for coming, but your services are no longer needed kind of mistake.

Probably some elderly person who they do not have to pay, who would not know a Cox Plate from the fried chicken dish at the on course club.
Remember, it might take intelligence to be smart , but it takes experience to be wise

Yep Croca , We complain while participating in home pleasures half the time .The other half ( we aren't at home )
All the petty nothings.
Talking Ratings ..   Humidor best ever,   but with bonus for the unreal wide run and the easy margin in smart time , Winx by at least 3L. That's being kind to Humidor.
Imagine for one moment = IF =   Humidor had run her down, Bowman would have been in hibernation for the next 5 years.

   I've said before ,   Hughie does sleep on duty at times.
