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.
