Thunder Set for Sportsbet

Sportsbet sent me to Kyneton to shoot the 1000/1 Melbourne Cup shot “Thunder Set” as the Kempsey-trained runner begins its fairytale tilt at gaining a start in the race that stops a nation. Sportsbet have adopted the battler from the bush’s dream by paying the horse’s latest Melbourne Cup nomination fee. Country trainer Vince Jones has been dreaming of making it to Flemington on the first Tuesday of November for three decades as a trainer, and showing the rich overseas raiders a thing or two.

"Thunder Set" needed to win or place in the Bendigo Cup to give itself a chance of qualifying for the Melbourne Cup, unfortunately it finished well back in the field.
