THE RACE THAT STOPS A NA­TION

Style Magazine - - Community -

It might be the ‘race that stops the na­tion’, but the Mel­bourne Cup is so much more than just another Group 1 horse-rac­ing event.

When you in­clude the whole car­ni­val (Derby, Oaks and Stakes days), it’s a four-day cel­e­bra­tion of food, wine and fash­ion – bring­ing to­gether all the glitz and glam­our, pomp and cer­e­mony that has made this time of year such a spe­cial one on the rac­ing cal­en­dar.

More than 100,000 race­go­ers will flock to Flem­ing­ton this year to see what sur­prises, dra­mas and even fairy­tales will un­fold in this 3200m thriller, while count­less mil­lions more will at­tend pri­vate func­tions or stand glued to the TV in their homes and of­fices.

This year, the Cup will be run on Tues­day, Novem­ber 7 at 3pm (EDST).

What have you got planned?

BRING­ING TO­GETHER ALL THE GLITZ AND GLAM­OUR, POMP AND CER­E­MONY
