Summary
Despite his awkward galloping style, few racehorses could match Might and Power's speed and stamina, and the fans loved to watch him dominate a race. In 1997, having won the Caulfield Cup by a staggering seven and a half lengths, he chased his greatest prize, the Melbourne Cup, and resisted the valiant attack of outstanding stayer Doriemus to triumph in one of the tightest finishes ever. When he followed his Cups double with a Cox Plate in 1998, the horse known as Mighty was the undisputed champion of the Australian turf. In a golden era of exceptional racehorses, Might and Power was a giant - the horse of a lifetime for owner Nick Moraitis, the horse of hope for trainer Jack Denham, and the horse of redemption for jockey Jim Cassidy. Twenty years on from his thrilling Cups double, Helen Thomas tells the amazing story of the People's Horse - a horse called Mighty
