Jodie & Soda Chats With Kerrin McEvoy Following His Big Win

Jodie & Soda caught up with Australia’s Proudest dad, Phillip McEvoy, who was trackside at Flemington when his son Kerrin McEvoy won the Melbourne Cup for the second time!  

“It was fantastic I tell you what we were doing some jumping, I lost my glasses I lost everything!!!” he told Jodie and Soda.  

The celebrations continued well into the night, with the family partying alongside trainer Robert Hickmott and owner Lloyd Williams  

“There was a $1,000 worth of champagne on each tray getting around in the celebrations,” he revealed.  

It caps off another exciting year for the family, who last year were celebrating Kerrin’s sister in-law Michelle Payne's victory.

Jodie & Soda also caught up with the man of the moment himself, Kerrin McEvoy. He told Mix 1023 he will spend some of the winnings on a big sparkly ring for his heavily pregnant wife Cathy.
