Victory came at a cost for Cosgrave, though, as he was banned for 11 meetings for careless riding - the ban will not rule him out of the Melbourne Cup, for which Best Solution is around a 10/1 shot.

Victoria Derby victor Ace High can prove to be a winning hand for champion jockey Damien Oliver in Saturday's Group 1 $5m Stella Artois Caulfield Cup (2400m) at Caulfield.

"He was there to be beaten".

Unfamiliar with Caulfield until a week ago, Cosgrave now rates The Heath as one of his favourite tracks.

He was suspended for 11 meetings and is able to ride again on October 31.

"My two big winners of my career have been here".

A photo finish for Best Solution, narrowly overcoming Homesman to claim the Caulfield Cup.

Racing Victoria's chief handicapper Greg Carpenter has decided not to give the worldwide visitor a penalty for the $7.3 million Melbourne Cup (3200m).

"I think anything is possible after today, he should have got beaten because he had such a bad trip and everything went wrong for me", he said.

Ellen DeGeneres fueled Naomi Osaka’s crush on Michael B
Seeing the very public post, Jordan, 31, chose to one-up DeGeneres with another shirtless shot. Being the jokester that she is, DeGeneres tweeted a shirtless photo of Jordan to Osaka.

The trainer, who has won eight Group 1 races throughout the world this year, paid tribute to His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai; for targeting the Caulfield Cup with Best Solution.

"It was his decision to send him to Australia and it's great to see Best Solution, after winning two Group Ones in Germany, come to Australia to win another Group One", bin Suroor said.

Best Solution had been expected to run handy, but missed the break and Cosgrave had to work hard to get him towards the front of the field.

Worth the journey: Pat Cosgrave kisses the trophy.

"He kicked early at the 400m and that suited the horse - he won well".

"We've had very good results with some very good horses".

IT somehow seemed appropriate that the jockey who had travelled the furthest to ride in the race - on the horse that covered nearly as much ground as any other contender - took out Saturday's $5 million Caulfield Cup, as the internationals once again dominated proceedings.

Internationals filled three of the first four places, while Japanese pair Chestnut Coat (13th) and Sole Impact (14th) failed.

The betting had Kings Will Dream in favouritism just ahead of Youngstar and The Cliffsofmoher.
