Photographer's Note

Taken during the yearly Melbourne Cup, the biggest racing event in Australia.
Of course I bet on the wrong horse, but it was quite the event to join!!
Lots more coming up (since it's almost time for the 2007 race)

On the first Tuesday of November each year, all Australia comes to a standstill. It is the running of the Melbourne Cup, still Australia’s premier and richest horse race (with prizemoney of A$5 million in 2005). Melbourne Cup fever fills the day completely.
Unless there are scratchings, 24 horses line up at the barrier at Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne for the 3200-metre race which has become a national passion.
