  1. Brew

    Brew is a small, plain bay Thoroughbred gelding who won the 2000 Melbourne Cup for trainer Mike Moroney and jockey Kerrin McEvoy. Brew carried the lightweight of 49.5 kilos, and defeated the veteran Yippyio and the stablemate Second Coming. After finishing second to Yippyio in the Moonee Valley Cup, Brew qualified for the Melbourne Cup by winning The Dalgety on Derby Day, three days before the Cup. Brew was a son of the Sir Tristram and the champion New Zealand racemare and Japan Cup winner Horlicks, but, unfortunately for such a well-bred horse, was gelded before showing his best form. The Melbourne Cup was Brew's last win. Brew is now at Living Legends, the International Home of Rest for Champion Horses located in Woodlands Historic Park, Greenvale, Victoria, Australia.
