    Wow, I didn't think I'd see a horse racing fan here. Should be a great week here in the USA, also, with the Breeder's Cup (Although pretty much every American division is pathetic this year.)

    Good luck to all who are placing a bet on The Melbourne Cup today, great race but not necessarily great for backing a winner. Good luck to you too Barry if you're placing a bet. smile

    I reckon it will be won by Americain by a length.

    Used to be passionate about the horses but hardly ever go to a meeting or put a bet on these days. I remember the times when getting the week off work for Cheltenham Festival was the be all and end all of my life! Hope your horse wins tomorrow and I know what the Melbourne Cup means to Australia! smile

    I am placing a box trifecta bet on  Americain, Red Cadeaux & Jukebox Jury

    I am also going for first 4 including Niwot

      Well Red Cadeaux was second, just! What a finish.

    Americain on the nose, a couple of quinellas, a few boxed trifectas, but it all came to naught after 30 dollars spent across all bets, lol. Ah well, it's the only time of year I make a bet
