Since the Melbourne Cups inception in 1877, the day has been a public holiday for those in Melbourne and Victoria, which has helped to swell public interest around the whole Spring Carnival. This was highlighted in the 1960’s when the Victorian racing Club decided to host Horse racing ‘fashion on the field’, in an attempt to attract women to the races. Needless to say the promotion was a success, with the fashion parades still taking place on Melbourne Cup day.

In recent times Makybe Diva has been the first horse to win 3 successive Melbourne Cups (2003, 2004, 2005); a feat which has seen her take her place as one of Australia’s finest ever gallopers. If Makybe Diva is the queen the Melbourne Cup, it would be fair to say that the mercurial trainer Bart Cummings if the King. This was highlighted a record 11th time in the 2008 Melbourne Cup, when he trained rank outsider Viewed to an unexpected victory.
