The Melbourne Cup is Australia's major annual thoroughbred horse race. Billed as 'the race that stops a nation', it is a race for horses aged three-years-old and over, and covers a distance of 3200 metres. Melbourne Cup Day is held on the first Tuesday of November every year. It is an annual public holiday in the state of Victoria.
Many people, who don't usually bet on racing, have a go!
We all get a lot out of lotteries!
