HORSE RACING: MELBOURNE CUP DAY
FROM 10AM, SCT
There’s a gaping hole in the Cup field this year – in the form of legendary Cups King Bart Cummings. Cup Day lost its most powerful hoof beats on August 30, when the legendary trainer died, aged 87, with 12 Melbourne Cup winners to his name. His absence will be keenly felt around Flemington today. The big race starts at 3pm.
