Emirates Melbourne Cup Day 2009

'The Race that Stops a Nation'

It’s the greatest day on the Australian sporting and social calendar – the one day when everyone, young and old, stops to partake in this unique cultural tradition.
But while Australians all over the continent take part in the celebrations, nothing compares with being there to witness another chapter in this enduring story.
The $5.65 million Emirates Melbourne Cup is the richest handicap race in the world and the centrepiece of the Melbourne Cup Carnival.

I'm backing # 9...
