South Australia's Melbourne Cup winning jockey Kerrin McEvoy is on top of the world.
McEvoy rode Cross Counter at Flemington yesterday and lead the field across the finishing post to win his third Melbourne Cup, taking home a cool $200,000 for his troubles.
And the man from Streaky Bay spoke to Roo and Ditts this morning on Triple M Adelaide, predicting the local pub "would have been rocking!"
McEvoy made a promise to his wife and kids that if he won this year's Melbourne Cup, he'd buy them a new house.
Looks like Kerrin will be looking up the real estate guide in today's newspaper...
