Melbourne Cup Carnival 2016 is all done and dusted and how wonderful was it? This year I only made it to Melbourne for Derby Day but I loved every minute of it. Being with great friends and my very special partner, made this trip probably one of my best ever.
We arrived Friday morning with a stroll along Southbank. The buzz was already electric – you could just feel it. We found our spot to settle in for lunch where we could soak in the rays while we overlooked Southbank. It was the best seat for running into friends but it was excitement plus when Wilf Mula walked passed and we had a chat. Rosemary & Wilf who had a runner in Race 5 – Coolmore Stud Stakes on Derby Day, “Flying Artie”. A little inside info was kindly revealed which lead us to a lovely win on Saturday. We got to scream the horse all the way up the straight to a might WIN – it was PRICELESS.
