Hi!! Everyone... Today was the biggest Horse Race for Australia the Melbourne Cup.. The Nation stopped when the race was run. The National Anthem was sung then off goes the horses from the barriers and away they go... Fiorente the name of the horse who won is one of the Trainers by Gai Waterhouse the first lady to win the Melbourne Cup.. The Jockey Damien Oliver was riding Fiorente and won first Place... I picked out the winner how lucky was that... How did you go in the Cup Cathy. Did everyone in Australia get a win... Are we going to Party!!!!

I also thought Fiorente would win. I am so pleased Gai has finally won a Melbourne Cup. She is a brilliant trainer.

The movie The Cup was shown on TV here last night. It is the story of Damien Oliver when he won his first Melbourne Cup. He won it only a few days after his brother had died after a race fall. His father was also killed in a race fall. So I was also pleased that Damien won today.

The Melbourne Cup is also the richest horse race in the world. Even richer than the Kentucky Derby.

Many years ago, when I was very much younger I was a Strapper in Brisbane and used to ride race horses. I rode some pretty good horses, including some that were the offspring or siblings of past Melbourne Cup winners.
