Melbourne Cup

November 6, 2006

Tomorrow, 7th November, the Melbourne Cup is run. The race on Flemington Racecourse is Australia’s major horserace. It’s a three day event and it attracts a lot of people. A crowd of 128.000 was present on Derby Day, past Saturday. A record. The Victoria Racing Club expects a 100.000+ attendance for Tuesday’s Melbourne Cup and Thursday’s Oaks Day.

The Melbourne Cup is more than racing alone. It’s a carnival. There’s ‘Fashion on the Fields’. The most elegant male and female racegoers are awarded a prize. Melbourne Cup is a public holiday in the Melbourne area.

This year Tawqeet could win the race. If it does, it will create history for his trainer, David Hayes. No trainer has ever won the ‘big four’ :the Golden Slipper, Caulfield Cup, Cox Plate and Melbourne Cup.

Update: Delta wins Cup
