Melbourne cup 2016 last place

Last place went to Rose of Virginia which finished some 99 lengths behind, walking over the finishing line.  

Stewards discovered after the race that the 60-1 outsider had suffered an internal bleed, which her stable said was "minor". The horse also had her right hind galloped on during the race, a factor in her performance.
