Viewed (October 4, 2003 – April 18, 2010) was an Australian Thoroughbred racehorse who won the 148th Melbourne Cup on 4 November 2008. Prior to the Cup, Viewed won the AJC JRA Plate and qualified by winning the Brisbane Cup on 9 June 2008.
2008 Melbourne Cup
In the Melbourne Cup, Viewed defeated the Luca Cumani-trained Bauer in a photo finish. The finish was so close that the electronic timing devices, which are placed inside the saddle cloths, recorded that Bauer had completed the course one-hundredth of a second faster than Viewed. Viewed was trained by Bart Cummings and was ridden by Blake Shinn. It was Shinn's first Melbourne Cup winner and the 12th for Cummings. It was the fourth time Cummings had won the Cup in partnership with Dato Tan Chin Nam, the owner. Viewed was an outsider in the Melbourne Cup, and paid $41.00 on the totalisator in New South Wales.
2009 Caulfield Cup
Following the Melbourne Cup, Viewed failed to break through in four starts during the autumn, but returned in the spring to win the Caulfield Cup on 17 October 2009. He was ridden by Brad Rawiller, and came from the tail of the field. Viewed was the first original topweight in history to win the Caulfield Cup ,and the first Melbourne Cup winner to win the following year's Caulfield Cup since Rising Fast in 1955. Viewed defeated one of his stablemates, Roman Emperor, and was Cummings's seventh winner of the race.
