The Jeune Handicap (1610 metres) at Flemington might have been a long way short of the class of the 1994 Melbourne Cup won by the former star stayer, but there was a similar showing of emotion, after Clemo overcame an outside barrier to win.

Clemo is named in memory of the late Paul Clements, a long-time member of the racing community and son of former prominent bookmaker Neville Clements.
