I was privileged enough to have the best spot in the house at yesterday’s Tatts Cox Plate at Moonee Valley.

I was rapt with some of the photos I took in the Winner’s Circle, including the one above, which shows the face of jockey Glenn Boss immediately after the race. Bossy had to lose 5 kgs in 9 days in order to ride Samantha Miss at 47.5kgs, and it really shows in this photo – he looks physically and mentally exhausted.

Maldivian was a worthy winner of the great race, and a good-news story after last year’s disaster at the barriers in the Caulfield Cup.
