Losing ticket number 2!

Losing ticket number 2!

November 4th had arrived – the day of the Melbourne Cup! The Melbourne Cup is kind of the equivalent of the Pommie Grand National – it’s a big horse race that everyone likes to have a bet on.

It’s so popular that in Victoria (where Melbourne is) – it’s actually a public holiday. A PUBLIC HOLIDAY COS OF A HORSE RACE?! That would never be allowed in Pom Land – we don’t even get a day off for the Queen’s birthday.
