Considering how difficult it is to pick the winner of the Melbourne Cup, it is the one national race I bet on all year!
I just get wrapped up in the excitement of the big race.
It wouldn't be the same if I didn't have a punt.
I love the build up to the race and then the excitement just before they jump....and of course the finish.
The beautiful, big Phar Lap won in 1930 - a video I have posted below.
I wish Lady Luck to shine on you today......
