I’m not horsing around when I say today is the race that literally stops the nation. The average Australian will bet on average, $29 on the Melbourne Cup, but is the big day really all about the horses?
‘Australia’s biggest race’ is all about putting on your best frock and strutting your stuff on the field. We may not get a public holiday for the Melbourne Cup in Perth, but that won’t stop us!
Each year the Perth hot spot changes. Whether you enjoy a three-course lunch, or head down to Ascot where 20,000 people are expected to attend, there will no doubt be celebration!
Just make sure to not sprain your ankle! Eat a big lunch, pop an energy bar in your handbag and refuel throughout the day. Keep room in your bag for bandaids, Panadol and don’t forget the sunscreen.
Hope to see you all our there at Ascot Racecourse- I will be scouting for the best dressed and snapping pics of well-dressed fillies!
And oh, Happy Punting!
