We are getting to the end of this year's Spring Carnival and we have to say it has been epic. Despite a terrible weather on Derby Day, the rest of the week was absolutely fantastic. For different reasons we only attended Melbourne Cup this year, but we are actually happy we got a chance to go, even though it was the only day.
Melbourne Cup day was, as it is every single year, a fantastic event filled with the most beautiful outfits and located on the amazing Flemington racecourse.
We booked tickets for General Admission as we wanted to be as close to the track as possible to feel and enjoy the races. The main race went really fast but was incredibly intense. Everyone felt so involved, screaming and supporting each horse.
The day never ends too late, and we were pretty happy to leave after the race as it is an exhausting day to stand on heels and under the sun !
We took a few photos and videos and we hope you enjoy them as we did on the track !
We have been very sorry to hear two of the most amazing horses have died on that day. RIP to the favorite Admire Rakti and beautiful Araldo.
