Tweed Daily News - - OPINION NEWS - NIKKI TODD

ONE of the high­lights of the Tweed cal­en­dar for me is the an­nual Mel­bourne Cup day meet at the Tweed River Jockey Club. Set in the shadow of Mt Warn­ing, there would be few tracks in the whole of Aus­tralia that could boast such a mag­nif­i­cent out­look. The day was a fan­tas­tic suc­cess again this year, with per­fect weather – not too hot and not rain­ing – making for a con­tented crowd. I love catch­ing up with friends and col­leagues at the event and of course, there’s nothing bet­ter than check­ing out all the fash­ions while the horses pound by on the race­track.

Well done to the or­gan­is­ers, com­peti­tors and vis­i­tors who made the day such a suc­cess. I’m look­ing for­ward to next year’s race al­ready.
