Just wTching a 1-10 best finishes on Pay TV. Bonecrusher, Freemason, were great races, but my gong goes to the QE2 at Flemington about 1967-8 when Rain Lover and Big Philou were the only starters, not a match race, but that's how it turned out with no other acceptors. What are others' opinions?

STRIKE WHILST THE IRON IS HOT

reductio ad absurdum

The richest man is not he who has the most, but he who needs the least.

A few of favourites off the top of my head:

Bonecrusher - 1987 Australian Cup : every bit as spine tingling as his Cox Plate win. Check it out on YouTube

Saintly - 1996 Cox Plate : ding dong finish with Filante, Juggler & All Our Mob

Octagonal - 1997 Australian Cup : Occy getting off the canvas to win another G1

Burroye Lord - 1998 VRC GN Steeple : a personal fave having watched this one live, astonishing run by the runner up Off Again who came from a mile back to just fail to nab Burroye Lord

If you ever see a photo of the 1973 AJC Derby Lord Hybrow of Imagele, Leica Lover and Grand Cidiumn I'm sure that one will stay with you for a while.

The Turnbull effort of Winx 2018 is as good as i've seen.

     Her final 800 m from being well back in a slow early sectional hopelessly pocketed ( twice ) and wins Hard held was fantastic.

The finish for the 1918 Craven Plate with 4 locked together was regarded as the best finish for a principal race up to that time and for decades after.

It was immortalised in one of Martin Stainforth's famous paintings
