Taking place Tuesday, November 1st, The Melbourne Cup, Australia’s most prestigious thoroughbred event literally stops the country, as all gather to witness the three minute race that covers 3200 meters, and finishes with the winner awarded upwards of millions of dollars in prizes, as well as, the coveted cup trophy. Whether at the sidelines of cheering from afar, be a part of the Aussie spirit of mateship as you barrack (cheer on), your favorite jockey and horse.
