The 2012 Melbourne Cup has been won by Green Moon, who beat Fiorente, and Jakkalberry, in third in a surprise result for all three placings.

Ethiopia has run last – it is believed to have injured a tendon, but it appears the horse will survive.

Fiorente, with jockey: James McDonald and trainer: Gai Waterhouse, paid $11.80 for second.
