90,000 What are hats for in Australia? Melbourne Cup | The world around us

This holiday is the Melbourne Cup, the most significant horse race of the year. I will tell you about this holiday not from the perspective of players and those who understand horses and bets. I will tell you about it from the most beautiful side – from the ladies’ side.After all, the Melbourne Cup is not only a horse race, but also a weekly fashion parade. Yes, for a week. Let the Cup itself be just one race, but the holiday and carnival in his honor begins on Saturday of the previous week and ends on Saturday of the next. Although officially it ends on Thursday with a parade of outfits and hats and a selection of winners or even winners.

It’s a holiday …

The Melbourne Cup is Australia’s most significant Tuesday.Day of “race when the whole nation freezes.” Mark Twain also called this holiday “the most real folk festival in Australia” and said that “the scale of this event and the way it attracts the whole country is truly amazing.”

Every year, millions of people in Australia drop everything at 3pm on the first Tuesday in November to watch or listen to a race at the central racetrack.Parliament takes a break from sitting. Hundreds of thousands of residents of the country flock to the racetrack in the best and most original outfits. The festival rules the city and the whole country.

Australia is the only country where horse racing is recognized as a public holiday. As the most prestigious two-mile race in the world, the annual Melbourne Cup is a sporting and social event that has already become a national symbol and one of the largest attractions in the state of Victoria.

Traditionally, the Melbourne Cup is a place where everyone comes in their finest and most exquisite outfits, from celebrities to ordinary people. Ladies usually … no, they always choose a hat or a hat, except for their outfit. Over the years, the tradition of hats has evolved into a whole art. Master hatters work miracles, and ladies appear on the lawns of the racetrack in whole structures of fabric, feathers and lace.

Fashion on the Field is now a traditional event. It kicks off Saturday for the Derby Cup and the winners are announced on the Thursday after the Melbourne Cup on Oaks Day, or ladies’ day.

Why hats in Australia …

Long before November, all shops, department stores and boutiques in Australia are selling hats and hats of all kinds and sizes.Ladies flock to the counters, choosing a hat to their liking and dress. Prices for these games range from $ 50 to $ 1000.

If a lady can afford an original hat, she goes to the master hatter. There are also a lot of them in Australia. In just one area where I live, I counted three. In this case, the lady will have an original and even exclusive hat. Ladies with their own imagination buy a simpler hat and decorate it themselves, since there are plenty of all kinds of accessories in Australian stores.

It is also important that almost immediately after the holidays all hats in stores are significantly discounted, and you can buy yourself a very interesting hat for the entire long and sunny Australian summer. Since, in addition to the races, we need hats all summer, preferably with wide brims.

Beauty at the hippodrome and beyond

All these hats, outfits, stars and celebrities appear and parade on the lawns of the hippodrome for a week.The members of the jury look at all this as if from the outside, nevertheless not losing sight of anything and making up their own opinion. All participants will receive gifts, and the winners will receive expensive prizes.

These days a whole sea of ​​flowers, paints, materials and smells reigns at the hippodrome – a feast of taste … although tastelessness too. But that’s not what we’re here about.

I was lucky to work in the races back in 1996, when Priscilla Presley was one of the jury members for the hat parade. There was so much noise, how many guards were around the small and simply dressed woman. How striking was the difference between what was happening on the lawn around Mrs. Presley and what was in the VIP box in the stands. When I went up there to carry the documents, I saw in the huge empty hall a single woman who took off her shoes and wearily leaned back in the seat. She was wearing a pale blue suit and a matching hat. Princess Diana was sitting alone, completely alone in an empty hall! There was no noise or guards around her.

But that’s all at the racetrack. Behind the hippodrome, this festival is also celebrated to the fullest. Since the races take place in Melbourne and it is only a day off in Victoria, in other cities and states, residents celebrate in their own way. Restaurants host lunches with unlimited champagne and big-screen horse racing. A meal like this can cost you between $ 200 and $ 500 per person. A prerequisite for such a dinner is a formal suit or outfit and a hat for the lady.

In many homes, friends and family gather to dine and watch the races. For their own pleasure and in keeping with tradition, they also dress up and put on hats.

No need to spend money on tickets, crowd in the subway, and then in the crowd at the racetrack to enjoy the holiday.You just need to want and make yourself a holiday. A bottle of champagne, a hat and a friendly company are all you need.

But if you still want to, you can go to the hippodrome. This is a whole event. How long women prepare for it, how they gather, how they plan … How long they tell each other who they saw and who was wearing what.

After the races, from which the nation freezes, a quiet peace and order is established in Australia until Christmas …

Melbourne Cup Australia

2005 Cup: Jockey Glen Boss rides the Macaibi Diva seconds before the finish

The Melbourne Cup has been called “the race that stops the nation.”It has become a kind of national institution generating controversy and more interest than any other horse race in the country (it is worth noting that the “Cups” of various ranks in the states of Australia are held almost monthly).

The first Melbourne Cup was held in November 1861. Then 17 horses participated in the races. The prize pool is £ 170 and a gold watch. Today the Melbourne Cup is the most prestigious two-mile handicap in the world and the most expensive cup in Australia with a prize pool of $ 5 million.Australian dollars. Only on bets (and almost every Australian makes a bet on this day!) Several million dollars are earned. The races are held under the auspices of the Victoria Racing Club in Flemington, a suburb of Melbourne.

Melbourne Cup Day is Australia’s most famous Tuesday. No matter what the Australians are doing, at 3.20 pm ET on the first Tuesday in November, people everywhere stop to listen to the race signal or watch it on TV.

It is also a day of many activities at the Flemington Racetrack. Ladies, invited to the most famous horse races in the world, try to impress with their outfits and, most importantly, hats – fashionable, strange, funny. Coming to the races without a hat is like staying at home.

Spectators at the hippodrome begin to gather at 8 am, although the races themselves start well after noon. By 3 o’clock in the afternoon, the hippodrome is filled with up to 100,000 people – to watch one of the most grandiose shows in the country.

In 2005, the Macaibi Diva made history by becoming the only horse to win the Melbourne Cup three years in a row. Coach Lee Friedman told the jockey after the races: “Go and find the smallest spectator on this racetrack, because this is the only person who has a chance to see this again in his life.”

The Melbourne Cup concludes a six-week spring (when it’s fall, it’s spring in the southern hemisphere!) Carnival in the capital of Victoria. All these six weeks are a continuous celebration of laughter, fashion and … the best trotters in the world.A great way to shake off the remnants of winter! The carnival starts in early October and lasts almost two months. The Melbourne Cup are not the only races on this holiday, but they are definitely the most famous.

Fashion on the field – “Fashions On The Field” – no less important event of the day. For the best costume, race viewers – a man and a woman – are awarded valuable prizes. Fashion trends and costumes from the spectators of the Cup are attracting almost as much attention as the races themselves. By the way, mini-skirts that gained worldwide popularity in the 60s.last century, began to be worn precisely after model Jean Shrimpton put on such a skirt in 1965 to celebrate the Melbourne Cup.

Melbourne Cup Records:
• The “fastest” record – 3 minutes 16.3 seconds in 1990 – belongs to the horse Kingston Rule.
• The most titled winner – Makaibi Diva (victories in 2003, 2004, 2005).
• Jockeys Bobby Lewis and Harry White have the most trophies.

90,000 Australian National Holidays: Melbourne Cup

In Australia, various “cups” are held almost every month, but only the Melbourne Cup is rightfully called “horse races that make the nation freeze. “This cup attracts the most lively interest from the Australians. Serious disputes and contradictions flare up among residents of the country with a variety of beliefs and preferences. For the first time, the Melbourne Cup was held in 1861 on a November day, 17 horses participated in the competition. That prize pool was £ 170 plus a gold watch. To date, the Melbourne Cup has a prize pool of AU $ 5 million and is Australia’s most prestigious and expensive Cup.On the bets alone, and it should be noted that almost every inhabitant of the Green Continent makes bets, it is possible to get a multimillion-dollar income. The most prestigious handicap in the world is run by the Victoria Horse Racing Club in the Fleminton suburb of Melbourne. The most popular Tuesday in the country is Cup Day. No matter what the Australians are doing on this day, not earlier and not later than 3:20 pm on the first Tuesday in November, all work stops for the sole purpose of hearing the signal for the start of the races and seeing them at least on TV. This day is not limited to horse racing at the hippodrome. The ladies present at the competitions strive to amaze everyone around them with their unusual outfits and the most unimaginable hats in shape and size. It is considered bad form among ladies to be at the races without a headdress. Despite the fact that the races start in the afternoon, many people try to come in the early morning. By the appointed time, about 100 thousand people fill the stands of the racetrack in order to see the most popular show in Australia with their own eyes.In 2005, coach Lee Friedman said to a jockey after the races: “Go find the smallest child on this racetrack, because only he has a chance to see something like this again in his life.” This year, for the first time in horse racing history, a horse named Macaibi Diva won the Melbourne Cup for the third time in a row. Don’t forget that when autumn hits us, spring blooms in the southern hemisphere. Carnival in Melbourne lasts six weeks, and the cup marks its magnificent end. All these 42 days, laughter, joy, fashion and, of course, human affection for the best trotters in the world are in the air.The Australians have come up with a good way to shake off winter hibernation. The carnival begins in October and lasts almost two months. Of course, the Melbourne Cup is not the only race taking place in Australia, but by right the most famous and popular. Fashion at the races is the first thing. A valuable prize is awarded for a male and female spectator’s costume. Costumes and dresses, made according to the latest fashion trends, attract no less attention than the races themselves. One illustrative example is Jean Shrimpton, who wore her first miniskirt for the Melbourne Cup in 1965.After that, such a piece of clothing has firmly won the minds of the most beautiful fashionistas in the world.

Among the main records of the Cup it should be noted:

  • The most titled horse is the Makaibi Diva. Melbourne Cup victories in 2003, 2004 and 2005;
  • 90,076 Jockeys Harry White and Bobby Lewis have the most trophies;

My friend Peter Ustinov

The London writer Vitaly Vitalyev recalls the British actor, playwright, director and writer Peter Ustinov (1921-2004).

Igor Pomerantsev: Vitaly, was Peter Ustinov your friend in the Russian sense or in the English (friend)?

Vitaly Vitaliev: More likely in Russian, but in English too. The fact is that Pyotr Ionovich, as I called Ustinov, was not an Englishman. One Moscow newspaper, when he staged an opera at the Bolshoi Theater, wrote: “An Englishman saves the Bolshoi Theater,” and he was very surprised: “I have never been so insulted, called an Englishman.”He was not Russian either, because he always said that he was only conceived in Russia. We compared our fates with him, to some extent we agreed on the opinion that we are both defectors. He became a defector in the womb of his mother, Nadezhda Benoit, and I was one of the political defectors.

Vitaly, what were your crossroads: literary, emotional, intellectual?

– All those that you have named are, probably, fortunately or unfortunately, purely external. Because the wife of Peter Ionovich Helen always told me: “Do you know why he treats you with such warmth? Because you remind him of yourself when you were young.”I don’t know if it was a compliment or vice versa. On one of his books, which he gave me, he wrote the following: “To Vitaly, son, nephew, brother in humor, in literature, in roundness and in calm truthfulness.” We had a lot of common ground. I sometimes thought: well, of course, it’s all because of the roundness, it’s just not because of what anymore. However, I think this is not entirely true. Since we met him in Australia, when I ended up there after leaving Russia, I was already a fairly well-known journalist in Melbourne.I was asked to introduce Ustinov to the members of the Melbourne Journalists’ Club, I was completely unprepared for this. A legendary man came, whom I watched in the cinema, ran away from lessons for this. And I was not dressed, it’s hot in Australia, in some kind of T-shirt, in jeans. But what to do, on the other hand, I didn’t want to miss such an opportunity, of course. I went to this club, there, of course, everyone was in suits and ties. An overweight man in a white suit with a surprisingly young face entered. This is the case when gray hair made him look younger.He came with his wife Helene. I was very excited and uncomfortable with my appearance. I began with a story to present him, which really happened to me in London on one of my first visits from Russia, when they didn’t want to let me into a prestigious club because I didn’t wear a tie. Then in the end they gave me some rumpled tie, I proceeded to the cafeteria of this club, where all the happy members were sitting with ties, having lunch. And suddenly I noticed one of them, who did not wear a tie, he was in such a shirt without a collar and in a jacket.I pointed to him, it was perestroika time, and said:

“Here, look, your vaunted democracy. A man is sitting without a tie, and they gave me such a shmon here at the entrance.” The person who brought me to this club, the editor of the newspaper, replied: “Vitaly, this is a bishop after all. ” Ustinov terribly liked this story, he later recalled it many times and even included it in his four-hour evening, with which he performed with success in many countries of the world.He literally did not leave the stage for four hours, he also sometimes inserted this joke. After that, naturally, we went somewhere to drink coffee, got into a conversation, it turned out that we really have a lot in common, emotionally too. I then had a friend who was somewhat similar to Helen. Ustinov told me: “You see, even in this our tastes agree.” He played a huge role in my life. He and Helen came to my house, then we were still renting a small apartment in Melbourne, unexpectedly, which was very Moscow-style, great.He insisted that I give him a ride in my brand new Mazda; and I just passed my driver’s license exams – it was one of the terrible episodes in my life. He insisted that I take him to the Russian restaurant “Matryoshka”, quite far away, by the way. In short, he literally on his knees climbed into this small, tiny car, which crouched to the ground. But I was there too – remember the “roundness”? I sat in the driver’s seat, the car simply sank on the springs and drove off, touching the asphalt with its belly, striking sparks from the asphalt.I trembled like an aspen leaf all the way, thinking: well, everything, now something will happen, I will go down in history as the man who killed Peter Ustinov. But, nevertheless, everything turned out well, we arrived, he praised me for my confident driving. Then he began to advise me during his visits to Australia that I return to Europe. He said: “Well, Vitaly, you’re a European person. Of course, it’s good here, you have everything, but you need to return to Europe, everything is happening there”. He then wrote a column for the European newspaper, he told me: “Go to the editor, talk, maybe he will invite you to work.”I already had a name in England then. Which I did, and he and I turned out to be columnists of the same newspaper, which was very cool. He appreciated this column very much, because he really wanted to be recognized as a writer, this, too, few people know, because he had so many incarnations that it was difficult to choose one of them where he excelled more than others. And the director, and the musicologist, and the columnist for the newspaper, of course, the storyteller – this was probably the first, and the actor, winner of two Oscars.I think he was a very good writer. By the way, he was recognized as such, say, in Germany, where his books were translated. In England, for some reason, he was considered such a clown. By the way, he was very worried about this. As for purely some kind of writing relationship, I will never forget his advice. I had a lot of dictionaries of all kinds, the whole closet was crammed with dictionaries. Pyotr Ionovich came in, looked around and said: “You have a good study. Great, excellent, I am very glad. Then he looked at this cabinet and said:” And what is this here? Dictionaries? Excuse me, but why do you need them? You are a writer, a writer doesn’t need dictionaries. “This is what I have remembered for the rest of my life. Indeed, I soon got rid of this collection of dictionaries. Then, when I returned to Europe, it seemed that we would meet with him more often, but as often happens, we probably saw each other more often in Australia. However, I remember I was in Rome, coincidentally they ended up there with Helene too. He invited me to dinner at a restaurant. The three of us came – Pyotr Ionovich, Helen and me. Somewhere in the middle of dinner, they told me that today they are celebrating their 20th wedding anniversary, which was extremely pleasant, of course, for me.I was not ready, I jumped out into the street and bought a bouquet of flowers. By the way, speaking of dinners, breakfasts, we had several lunches with him – it was both pleasant and difficult. Because Petr Ionovich was an actor to the marrow of his bones, he never stopped acting, acting. He imitated all the people he met, the waiters. When the waiter approached, he began to speak with the waiter either with his own accent or in his own language. He spoke eight languages, as he said, “I make mistakes in eight languages.” He was terribly fond of copying me, I must confess, copied my accent.Sometimes he jokingly called me “Comrade Colonel”, I don’t know why. Sometimes he called me and introduced himself as, say, Gorbachev or someone else. He did it very well, of course. Especially well copied the Russian accent, German. By the way, he did not speak Russian. He spoke German fluently, since his father was German. My father was, by the way, an agent of the British Secret Service in Germany during the First World War, nicknamed “Bedbug”. His mother was, of course, Russian, Nadezhda Benois, a sculptor.Indeed, in Russia he was only conceived, never lived there.

Vitaly, you said that, to put it mildly, Peter Ustinov was critical of dictionaries. I remember when his book about Russia in England came out, I read some very scathing reviews of this book. Reviewers have counted 150 or even 200 inaccuracies in this book. Did you talk about this with Peter Ustinov?

– On topics similar to this, yes, they talked.The fact is that, being the kindest, smartest and very open person, devoid of any arrogance, he was somewhat naive, like many great artists, great actors. He was politically naive, he made many mistakes in this regard, although he liked to express his opinion in this column for the newspaper. For example, he wrote a column on the suppression of the uprising in Tiananmen Square, which was politically simply naive. In political views, he was leftist, extreme leftist, which is rather strange for a man who, no, he was not a multimillionaire, but I think he had some money, he lived well, but, nevertheless, he had leftist views.I once tried to argue with him several times, but it was impossible and unnecessary. I often said to him: “Maybe you don’t need to write a lot about politics?”

In England he was called an old clown in the right press for this, and this upset him very much. Then he was nevertheless given the title of Commander of the British Empire, but in principle, such was the attitude to him as to a person who was completely naive and ignorant in politics. He really was. Another proof that artists do not need to go into politics, absolutely nothing good comes of it. As for the inaccuracies in the book about Russia, I don’t know, I’ve heard about it too, but it seems to me that the book itself is very good in its emotional mood. Because he treated Russia with great warmth, with great love. But that wasn’t exactly his genre, you’re right. In my opinion, the best genre in which he succeeded, perhaps, better than anyone else – this, of course, was acting and oral story.I will never forget his show when he performed alone on stage for four hours. It seems that dozens of people passed on the stage in front of the audience, ranging from Beethoven to the corporal with whom he served in the army, the toothless corporal, and so on. It was just a celebration not only of laughter, but there were very serious thoughts too. I remember that it was not the first time I watched this show in Sydney, and for some reason he was on stage for a particularly long time, the Australian public really liked it. He literally fell off the stage. Even then, he was not very healthy, he was overweight, politically correct.He walked out literally sweating backstage. I came up and said: “Petr Ionovich, everything was wonderful,” well, what do they say in such cases, some flowers. And he immediately, without leaving his place, began to copy me, that is, he continued to play. We went somewhere, either for dinner, or just for a drink. All evening he continued to play and copy people who approached us, my friend, with whom I came. He simply could not live without it. You know, they say that a shark dies when it stops, I don’t know how true this is from a scientific point of view, that’s exactly what it was, I think, this is a person from those actors who die on stage.

With whom do you think you can compare him in Russia? Irakly Andronikov, Arkady Raikin? Or is there no analogue of Peter Ustinov in Russia?

– Irakli Andronikov, of course, you said quite rightly, it immediately suggests itself. He was also, in my opinion, a musicologist, and a writer, and so on. It seems to me that Irakli Andronikov was not an actor of this level. As far as I know, he did not stage operas in theaters around the world. He would hardly have been able to portray a whole symphony orchestra alone on stage, which Pyotr Ionovich did – this was one of the numbers of his show, with which he performed all over the world.That is, he alone for 10-15 minutes played like a symphony orchestra, depicting all this. Then another interesting fact: he knew music so deeply, he somehow called the names of 40 Swiss composers on a dispute. Can you imagine? The Hollywood star is completely atypical. I wanted to protect him because he was very open and very accessible. Returning to your question, I think that if we talk about our contemporaries, then in terms of erudition and knowledge of literature, he can be compared with Dmitry Bykov.But again, this is only one side of him, and Ustinov had ten, if not more, I tried to count, the roles, incarnations in which he excelled. Also remember that he was the United Nations Ambassador for the Protection of Children for many years and he took this work very seriously.

Vitaly, does the name of Peter Ustinov say something to young people in the UK today?

– Yes, oddly enough.I even judge by some of my publications, I wrote about him several times, and they always arouse interest. He is not forgotten, of course, largely thanks to his activities as an actor, his brilliant roles of Hercule Poirot, then in the film “Spartacus”, which is still repeated here quite often, where he plays a patrician. This, in principle, is not the main role, but a minor one, but he received an Oscar for it. And Hercule Poirot, the series, is often repeated. It seems to me that mostly Ustinov is known precisely from his films. As a writer in the UK, he left no deep mark.

90,000 November 2 – Melbourne Cup

Dear friends! If for you Australia is just a yellow spot in the lower right corner of the world map – go to hell, you are not my friends.

And if the question – “The capital of Australia?” – you answer at least “Sydney” – well, come on, I’ll take you with me today for one grand continental holiday.

The Melbourne Cup is called the “horse race that stops the nation.”It has become a kind of national institution, generating controversy and generating more interest than any other horse race in the country – and there are many of them regularly held in Australia

The first Melbourne Cup was held in November 1861. And here in Russia, slavery was abolished. Then 17 horses participated in the races. The prize money was then £ 170 and a gold watch.

Today the Melbourne Cup is the most prestigious two-mile handicap in the world and the most expensive cup in Australia with a prize pool of $ 5 million.Australian dollars. Only on bets (and almost every Australian makes a bet on this day! Often they even saw a kangaroo in the queue to the bookmaker …) several million dollars are earned.

Melbourne Cup Day is Australia’s most famous Tuesday. It doesn’t matter what the Australians are doing – at 3.20 pm on the first Tuesday of November, people everywhere stop to listen to the signal for the start of the races or watch them on TV.

It is also a day of many activities at the Flemington Racetrack.Ladies invited to the most famous horse races in the world try to impress with their outfits and, most importantly, with their hats – fashionable, strange, funny. Coming to the races without a hat is like staying at home or coming naked.

Spectators at the hippodrome begin to gather at 8 am, although the races themselves start well after noon. By 3 o’clock in the afternoon, the hippodrome is filled with up to 100 thousand people – to watch one of the most grandiose shows in the country.

In this sense, it is very interesting that the Melbourne Cup, despite its national scale, is a holiday, in general, unofficial.Well, that is, probably, employees take time off on this day – I don’t know. Well, the whole nation cannot skip quite such a working day in unison.

In 2005, the Macaibi Diva made history by becoming the only horse to win the Melbourne Cup three years in a row. Coach Lee Friedman told the jockey after the races: “Listen to me Harry, go and find the smallest spectator in this racetrack, because this is the only person who has a chance to see this again in his life.”

An interesting feature of this holiday – fashion on the field – is no less important event of the day.For the best costume, the audience – a man and a woman – are awarded valuable prizes. The fashion trends and costumes of the spectators of the Cup attract almost as much attention as the races themselves.

By the way, miniskirts, which gained worldwide popularity in the 60s of the last century, began to be worn precisely after the model Jean Shrimpton put on such a skirt in 1965 to celebrate the Melbourne Cup.

Well, in Russia, as you know, fashion trends during the holidays are also very important. Well, how many times on the evening of March 8 you walk past some restaurant and see: an absolutely drunken woman stands, neighs like an Australian horse, and lifts her skirt over her head.

Events

After the end of the Northern War, on November 2, 1721, Peter I accepted … period. Peter I accepted the title of Peter the Great, Father of the Fatherland, Emperor of All Russia. And Russia has now become an empire.

The most curious thing in this story is that this is almost the only case when the pompous title of the ruler and the country almost completely corresponded to reality, because the reforms of Peter I, although they were cruel, nevertheless really brought the country out of the gloom of ignorance and this boyar ever-memorable conservatism.

What now? They called cheap stinky cigarettes “Peter I”. Well, it’s like calling the bistro-shawarma and the Ozerki metro station the Royal Plaza or, there, the Metropol. Visitors in dirty black jackets will be greeted by the Moscow Virtuosi orchestra, and Maestro Spivakov himself will cut the overcooked dog meat with a conductor’s stick.

On November 2, 2004, a sad event for all people happened: in America, George W. Bush was re-elected for a second term. In order not to go mad with sadness, a hemp effigy of this effigy was burned everywhere on this day in Holland.

Persons

On November 2, in different years, were born: the author of the famous attraction “Deadly Fuck”, Egyptian beauty Cleopatra, a very unusual Russian mystic writer Daniil Andreev, singer Irina Bogushevskaya and one of the most famous keyboard players in the world, a member of the legendary group “Emerson, Lake & Palmer”, Briton Keith Emerson.

Life in Australia: Melbourne Cup Day – Horse Racing, Melbourne Cup

02 November 2010

So, November 02, 2010 in Melbourne there was a festive day off – Melbourne Cup Day (Melbourne Cup, horse racing).

Traditionally, since 1861, horse races have been held at Flemington Park in Melbourne on the first Tuesday in November – a fairly large and expensive event.

What is the Melbourne Cup, history of the Melbourne Cup and its traditions:

The

Melbourne Cup is also called the “horse race that stops the nation.”

This Cup has attracted more interest than any other race in Australia. Immediately it must be said that Cups of various levels are held in other states of Australia and they are organized on a regular basis.

The first Melbourne Cup was held in November 1861. There were 17 horses in those first races. The prize fund of the Cup was 170 pounds sterling and a gold watch.

Today, modern Melbourne Cup races are one of the most prestigious in the world, as well as the most expensive in Australia. The prize fund of the Melbourne Cup today is several million dollars.Only on bets alone during the Cup, several million dollars are earned, and almost every Australian makes bets on this day.

The Cup Races are held at Flemington Park in Melbourne under the auspices of the Victoria Racing Club.

Melbourne Cup Day is Australia’s most famous Tuesday. It doesn’t matter what the Australians are doing – at 3:20 pm. On the first Tuesday in November, people everywhere stop to listen to the signal for the start of the race or watch it on TV.

In addition to the Melbourne Cup itself, other events are also held at the racetrack. This event is not bypassed with the so-called “fashion show”. Fashions On The Field is an equally important event in horse racing.

The best costume / outfit (male and female) is chosen from the spectators of the races and the winners are awarded with valuable prizes. Fashion trends presented during the Cup attract almost as much attention as the races themselves. Ladies choose for this day their most elegant dresses and shoes from their wardrobe and, most importantly, hats – fashionable, original, catchy and uniquely bright.You can’t do without hats!

Therefore, from early in the morning the streets of Melbourne are transformed and dazzled with multi-colored “fashionable” hats of ladies hurrying to the Cup. The hats themselves must be taken care of in advance.

Already a couple of months before the start of the races, shops are beginning to offer all sorts of original options for ladies’ hats, not a single television show misses the chance to tell in its program about the new season or how you can make your own little creative miracle with your own hands.

Spectators at the racetrack begin to gather in the early morning, although the races themselves start in the afternoon.

By three o’clock in the afternoon, the racetrack is filled with tens of thousands of people to watch one of the brightest and most famous shows in Australia.

In 2005, the Makybe Diva made Cup history as the only horse to win the Melbourne Cup three years in a row (2003, 2004 and 2005).

The fastest record was set by the Kingston Rule horse – 3 minutes 16.3 seconds in 1990.

Jockeys Bobby Lewis and Harry White won the most trophies.

So, no matter how tempting it all sounds and looks, we were drawn to nature again.

Putting together the weekend, the Melbourne Cup holiday weekend and RDO (Tyomin monthly additional day off), we got a whole mini-vacation, which we decided not to “sit” in the festive bustle of Melbourne, but to go on our next trip to Australia.

This time the choice fell on Tasmania again .
