Retired jockey, Greg Hall ambassador for Melbourne Cup Tour

Retired jockey, Greg Hall has been named as the Lexus 2019 Melbourne Cup Tour ambassador and he will accompany the Cup's upcoming visit to Yeoval.

The prestigious trophy will make its way to the town on October 14.

Mr Hall rode himself into the history books in 1992 winning the Brisbane Cup, the Sydney Cup, the Adelaide Cup and the very prestigious Melbourne Cup.

In the 1992 Melbourne Cup, Mr Hall was mounted on Subzero one of the very few grey horses to have raced in, let alone won, the Melbourne Cup.

The four-year-old grey gelding went on to a new racing life, becoming the mount for Racing Victoria's Clerk of the Course Graham Salisbury.

He has now been fully retired and a recent health scare and battle with arthritis seems to have been put on hold for this 31 year-old champion grey race horse gelding who still visits schools and hospitals as part of his role in the Racing Victoria's Public Relations Team.
