The 1964 Melbourne Cup has been purchased by an anonymous buyer for $140,300 at an auction in Sydney, reports news.com.au. Sold by Sotheby's, the nine-carat gold trophy, won by New Zealand-bred stayer Polo Prince, has been held in a private Queensland collection since 1999. It is believed the buyer paid more than $50,000 over the estimated sale price.
