November 2 All day
If you’ve ever been to the Melbourne Cup, you’ll know why people often call it. ‘The Race That Stops A Nation’. It doesn’t get any bigger or better than this.
The iconic annual horse race is a staple of the Australian sporting calendar. Each year, this highly anticipated event is held on the first Tuesday of November. This year, the Melbourne Cup is slated for 3pm local time on Tuesday 3rd November.
The ultimate test of stamina and staying power, the Melbourne Cup is raced over a punishing distance of 3,200 metres. More grueling than any other major event in Melbourne’s Spring Racing Carnival. The prestigious race places extraordinary demands on the contestants, and bestows exceptional glory upon the winners.
