Might And Power's sensational win in the 1998 Cox Plate at Moonee Valley in track record time crowned a career without parallel in the modern era.

Might And Power was retired in March 99 with a bowed tendon. He is unlikely to return to racing as his owner shows much concern for the wellbeing of the horse.
