Billed as the 'race that stops the nation', the Melbourne Cup boasts to be one of the richest and most prestigious two mile handicap horse race in the world. Every year on the first Tuesday of November, spectators flood to Flemington Racecourse to feel the rush of Australia's major Thoroughbred horse race, in hope of earning themselves some dollar of the Aussie gee-gees.
To place your bets on the ‘cream of the crop’ in Thoroughbred racing, Melbourne Cup Carnival is a must see event.
