About The Melbourne Cup
The Melbourne Cup is Australia's most famous annual Thoroughbred horse race. It is a 3200-metre race for three-year-olds and over, conducted by the Victoria Racing Club on the Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne, Victoria as part of the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival. It has a long tradition, with the first race held in 1861 and it has never been cancelled since. It is commonly billed as 'the race that stops a nation', but it is more accurately the race that stops two nations, as many people in New Zealand, as well as Australia, pause to watch the race.
