NEW Zealand star Ocean Park produced a sweeping run from the back of the field to give glamour jockey Glen Boss a third Cox Plate triumph.
In a stirring finish, Ocean Park wore down the three-year-old All Too Hard to claim Australia's weight-for-age championship at Moonee Valley on Saturday.
"I feel like this is my finest moment ... this horse is just a winner," Boss said.
"He gave me a great ride and always felt like he was going to win throughout the run."
Settling in the second half of the pack, Ocean Park made a long, sustained run to put himself into the race at the 400m.
In search of a fourth successive Group One triumph, Ocean Park levelled up to All Too Hard at 100m before edging ahead.
