  • Melbourne Cup the race that stops a nation

    Every year me and Shell have a punt on the Melbourne cup , we have a boogie , we try and pick a winner .

    Shell picks the 5 likely candidates and I ride into town and put $5 each way on five horses ... that comes to an outlay of $50 .

    This year we got 1st and 3rd ... winning $69.50 so we came out $19.50 up

    Don't know much about horses or horse racing but I reckon all of the foreign horses must be high grade quality to get flown over for the cup .

    Gail Waterhouse's first win , no Bart Cummings entry , won by an Aussie trained horse , was it Australian owned ? does anybody know ?

    Drink from the cup all you winners out there

    Well done Damien Oliver ... congratulations cowboy

                      So be it. Horse and greyhound racing should be banned.
                      Un-Australian, NO. It is actually European.
                      so long and thanks for all the fish

                        Was there a race on?

                        Never watching TV has its benefits.

                        I bet there has been at least 20,000 replays already. 14,000 of those would have been before the first ad break on every networks 6pm news.

                          oh dear, oh my, the excitement of it all !

                          there is another race !

                          Zip is challenging the champion !

                          who will triumph ?

                          who will be crowned ?

                          who will thrust their nipples first past the tape ?

                          who will sprint to the finish line ?

                          who will outlast the other in this marathon effort ?

                          sanity is the prize !

                          & Hanni is stripped down & oiled up !
