Not really heard of any of mine before - although that's not surprising since I don't follow horse racing at all. Hoping one of my nags can at least jag the booby prize for coming in last. :lol:

I hope one of the horses chosen for me wins. I'm not a big horse racing fan, but now I can watch it and back for one (well, 3 since we got picked 3 horses. lol).

I like the hype for the race that stops the nation

Cavalryman has been a late scratching from the race. Bad luck, bugaluggs. Hope one of your others come in for you.


ETA:- Bugger. Missed out on a prize by one place. Think one of my horses came in 6th, with the other two coming in closer to the tail of the field.

The 2014 Melbourne Cup has been run and won. Protectionist was an amazing winner storming away at the finish. Red Cadeaux was gallant again coming 2nd in the great race for the 3rd time. Who Shot the Barman came in third while the Lexus winner came in 4th. However the day was darkened when it was found that Admire Rakti had passed away :( Such an incredible horse has been lost. Araldo also lost his life after lashing out on the way back from baulking at a flag. Such a sad end to an incredible running of the cup.

Congratulations to ellenfan who won with Protectionist while yellow sock cleaned up 2nd and 3rd. Well done to all winners. ooX

Congrats to the winners (what a strong finish from the winner, and 2nd again for Red Cards), and thanks for coordinating again greys. :)
Sad end though.

7th ARALDO - cleo

Poor horse. [rant] apparently caused by some bogan brat waving a flag under the horse's nose ... no respect for the horses ... mutter mutter ... [/rant]
