MINDARIE students enjoyed a close encounter with racing royalty this month when the Melbourne Cup cup visited.

The cup, accompanied by 1994 winning jockey Wayne Harris and Victoria Racing Club historian Andrew Lemon, took centre stage at Peter Moyes Anglican Community School on September 8.

Harris, who won on Jeune, joined the WA leg of the cup’s national tour to share his tales of triumph in the lead-up to the iconic November event.
