The Melbourne Cup.
It’s the Kentucky Derby of Australia. Big ol’ horse race. Lots of betting. Big crazy hats. Lots of drinking. Correction – more drinking than usual for the middle of a work day. There is always lots of drinking here.
Well, we are in rehearsals, so no midday drinking or parties for us. But, we did do a few Melbourne Cup pools. My horse, Mount Athos, made a good showing and came in third.
The winner was…Fiorente! Who I kept calling Fiorello….close enough.
And you can see how intense these people get about their horse races!!!
Thanks for a good first race guys…more next year!
