Piping Lane racehorse Melbourne Cup winner

Piping Lane racehorseRacehorse Piping Lane was foaled in 1966 and was by Lanesborough out of the mare Londonderry Air (Piping Time)

Bred by Dr Michael Wilson, Piping Lane was the third Tasmanian horse to win the Melbourne Cup when he was ridden by John Letts to victory in the race in 1972, starting at 40/1. The previous two were Malua (1884) and Sheet Anchor (1885).

Owner by Tasmanian Ray Trinder, he was trained for the Melbourne Cup by George Hanlon.

He also won the C B Cox Stakes in 1972 as well as the Hobart Cup.

In his Melbourne Cup success, he defeated the flashy black Magnifique and champion Gunsynd.

An historical footnote: Piping Lane was the first horse to win a "metric" Melbourne Cup as 1972 was the year the Cup was changed from 2 miles to 3200 metres.
