    Well done to those who backed the winner.

    Going to be a nightmare getting decent prices on NH horses for future cups. Bookies were tighter in 2018 compared to 2017 and no doubt 2019 would be tighter.

    As nice it would be to have seen Latrobe go round today I don't think he would have beat Cross Counter

    I have seen it mentioned how The Cliffsofmoher was totally beside himself pre race and melting like an ice cream and foaming from the mouth both in the mounting yard and behind the gates. Doubt that has anything to do with his injury though.

    Think that was the crowd and it's general race day demeanor, some horses sweat up race day

    Lowest Melbourne Cup crowd since 1995.

    Know nothing about it, myself, have read that the horse was sired (hope that's the right term) by Galileo, who was apparently renowned for sweating up before races.
    Seems the situation is pretty politicized, animal welfare activists vs racing enthusiasts getting stuck into each other.
    Bloody awful way for the poor bugger to go out at the end of the day, whichever side of the fence people are on. Shame if that goes under in the rush to call each other dickheads on twitter.

    I just read over 10 pages, waiting for the jokes about iluvparis yet again backing the horse that comes "dead last."

    He must've broken his horse killing curse this year.

    Looks like some forgive runs for the faves after injury reports.

    Btw what is it with Bowman turning into a grumpy little shit? Like he's in heat when winx is in the paddock. Instant shit attitude on camera.

    Prince of Arran was caught behind a wall of horses when Yucatan made its run. That race wasn’t a true measure of where Yucatan sits against Prince of Arran.

    Just like yesterday wasn't the best of Yucatan. Wasn't saying anything against Prince of Arran, but Yucatan obviously is not a cat

    Race is losing relevance for the general population. They need Aussie heroes they can cheer on.

    I'm sure an extra 20k would have been there had Northwest Passage made the field.

    Yeah nah. 95% of those, along with 95% of people watching on TV, wouldn’t have a clue which hemisphere the horses were born and bred in.

    Why were WSTB, Youngstar and Ace High all under the odds...

    They know names Waller, Freedman, Hayes, Cummings... not so much Katsuhiko Sumii or Andreas Wöhler

    Kyneton Cup looks a good practice round of Weir lotto ahead of the Oaks tomorrow.

    Pom bragging about Eurosnob horses beating the Aussie horses,huge wankers.

    Another death to a horse.

    I saw footage of what happens to horses after racing,disturbing.

    I’m done with horse racing,not a gambler anyway.

    We need to look after horses better.

    The Melbourne Cup will die in time as long as these Euroflog tightarses race over to our country for the big bag of money.

    Like snitzepeg in the Weir lotto. Reason for poor cup day crowd wasn’t the weather at all, the masses are heading up the Calder this arvo.
