The Race That Stops The Nation.


Today in Melbourne we celebrate a very special day known as The Melbourne Cup. It is also a public holiday and a good day to catch up with friends, run a friendly sweep on some of the best horses in the world whilst drinking champagne and eating a beautiful meal from the BBQ.


For those who venture to the cup its a good chance to dress up like this.....


Or if you only get to the car park the men might look like this......

and to bet on some of the best horses in the world with names like this......
Jukebox Dury
Dunaden
Drunken Sailor
Mourayan
Unusual Suspect
Hawk Island
Illo
Saptapadi
Etc......

All for the chance of some lucky race horse owner to win this.......

and a lot of this.........
