It was the race that stopped the na­tion with mil­lions around the world tun­ing in, but ap­par­ently many aren’t so keen on Mel­bourne Cup fes­tiv­i­ties.

I won't be watch­ing as don't like horses be­ing flogged and dy­ing ba­si­cally for peo­ple who couldn't give a fig. Deb­o­rah Cuf­fley

I be­lieve it is wrong. The im­pact on horses, the gam­bling, the bing­ing on al­co­hol ..... how does the com­mu­nity ben­e­fit? Re­becca Denny

At home — love the horses and love the fashions. Dianne Gor­don Not in­ter­ested. Lisa Gwynn
