Albany Advertiser - - NEWS - Jes­sica Cuth­bert

Al­bany rev­ellers will frock up in their finest to watch the race that stops the na­tion to­day.

Sev­eral venues and work­places across the town will host lav­ish lun­cheons for the Mel­bourne Cup at noon.

The White Star Ho­tel, Due South, Six De­grees, In­swing and Three An­chors are among venues host­ing events for one of the most-watched sport­ing events in Aus­tralia each year.

The White Star Ho­tel will have live cov­er­age of the race, serv­ing food and bev­er­ages and host­ing trivia and fash­ion prizes. Due South will have prizes for best dressed and Mel­bourne Cup sweeps plus live en­ter­tain­ment.

Yu­catan re­mains the favourite for the race.
