30/07/02 Hall of Fame Horse Inductee: Rising Fast

Champion stayer Rising Fast, the only horse to complete a unique Spring Carnival treble, has been tonight inducted into the Australian Racing Hall of Fame in Melbourne.

Rising Fast was one of the greatest gallopers ever to grace the Australian turf.

In 1954, he became the only horse to win the Caulfield Cup/Cox Plate/Melbourne Cup treble in the one year.

During that period, Rising Fast won seven successive races including five Group 1s.

The following year he also won the Caulfield Cup and was an unlucky second in the Melbourne Cup.
