Melbourne Cup Thread

It's finally here. The best day of November. Melbourne Cup day.

I will feverishly work through the form guides tonight to give you all some choice tips to go and place your hard earned on tommorow.

In the meantime discuss.

An excuse for stupid people to wear stupid hats and stupidly stand in the rain drinking and getting even more stupid.


Otherwise I have no opinion.

I predict the winning horse will have a jockey on its back.

I am not australian, but I am pulling for your wonder mare, Makabye Diva to win again. I wish she would come over here to the states and give our top males a trouncing.

I'd also like to predict that more than one horse will start.

Well, I'd like to be really daring now and say that I think the horses will, at one point or another, touch grass.
