Congratulations to Victorian owner/breeder, Gerry Ryan, who enjoyed the thrill of a lifetime when his gallant French galloper, Americain, took out the 150th running of the Melbourne Cup.
A tremendous supporter of Australian sport in general and sponsor of the jockey’s fund, Gerry is the principal of Jayco caravans and owns a boutique breeding property at Nagambie.
Well done Gerry.
(Americain is not Gerry’s only ‘American’ connection as his daughter is married to the drummer from top US rock band Dandy Warhols. Gerry also raced a mare called Dandy Warhols – appropriately by Distant Music – and, while she won five races for Gerry, it’s fair to say that her trophies might be pushed aside to make room for the loving cup!)
