What happened in Perth

Three-time Lexus Melbourne Cup-winning jockey Damien Oliver paid a special visit to his old primary school in Byford as part of the Lexus Melbourne Cup Tour’s visit to Perth.

The Cup then made the journey to Belmont Racecourse to attend their mid-week race day and a Lexus Melbourne Cup Tour luncheon hosted by Perth Racing. Guests were invited to get up close with the $600,000 trophy and enjoy a Q&A panel with Lexus Melbourne Cup-winning jockeys Damien Oliver and Corey Brown as they shared their favourite Lexus Melbourne Cup memories. VRC Chief Executive Officer Steve Rosich was also in attendance to accompany the iconic trophy and share the magic of the People’s Cup with Western Australia.
