Believe it or not, it’s nearly November, and that can only mean one thing… It’s almost time for the race that stops a nation! Emirates Melbourne Cup Day is at the pinnacle of the Australian racing calendar. Widely accepted as the best staying handicap race in the world, the Emirates Melbourne Cup delivers the best year after year, placing Australia on the international sporting podium for all to admire.
On the first Tuesday every November we all stop at 3pm to see who will take out the Cup. Some like to study the guide and place their bets, others enjoy the spectacle of the whole day’s events, while some merely enjoy dressing up and getting involved in the fashions. Whatever your reason for getting involved, it’s a sensational day to tizzy yourself up and have some fun, and can serve as the perfect way to show your appreciation of a great year to your staff.
