ancientcitadel: (Melbourne Cup)
Today is Melbourne Cup Day. A public holiday in Victoria and since 2007 also in the Australian Capital Territory. For a horse race. :)

For the Cup, fixed for the first Tuesday in November. nearly every person in Australia stops to watch or listen.

Todays Results: 1st - Viewed
                              2nd - Bauer (IRE)
                              3rd - C'est La Guerre (NZ)

I bet on Master O'Reilly and Mad Rush - So I got 4th and 7th out of 22 horses. :( Bart Cummings won his 12th Melbourne Cup today, 50 years to the day that he won his first.

So I hope you enjoyed the 147th Melbourne Cup today.
