    Default Melbourne Cup 2012!

    The race that stops the nation is today! WOOOT! No connections running in it this year but still should be good!

    Don't really have time to post much but should be a good day!

    Prince Charles and Camilla are here as well and believe are presenting the Cup as well.

    It was a super race with Green Moon taking it! I think the thing I loved the most was the groom for Green Moon, it was his birthday and the fact that he was born on a Melbourne Cup day 26 years ago. Pretty darn good b-day pressie. Your best horse wins the Cup, you meet the Prince and Duchess and you get a trophy and $$. Not bad! lol

    I believe Ethiopia pulled up lame , think he cantered across finish line but not sure about that.

    My 2 picks in the office sweeps were Lights of Heaven (only mare) and Kilini which finished in 16th and 4th. So not bad!

    Americain and Dunadun never did anything and neither did the favorite Mount Ashmount ( i know thats wrong but don't have paper in front of me!).

    Glad I wasn't at Flemington since about 20 mins after the award presentations , the heavens opened and poured rain!

    But twas a good day over all i think!

    Horse with No Name: where abouts are you in Oz?
