It’s that day of the year again…alas this year I won’t be able to provide as full a coverage as I have in previous years due to my own work commitments, however I will keep you updated as much as I can throughout the afternoon, including the full finishing order of every horse.
My tips for today’s big race (The Emirates Melbourne Cup at 3pm Eastern Daylight Saving Time):
2. Jukebox Jury
8. Fox Hunt
I see that there is also some racing in Bunbury, Western Australia today, so as a bonus tip:
Bunbury Race 2 (The Instant Waste Management Maiden at 4:28pm Eastern Daylight Saving Time)
2. Satellite City
3. I’m No Eagle
The Melbourne Cup will be, as usual, live on the Seven Network across Australia, however if you can’t get to a television, there are plenty of radio stations covering the race, both on the air and online. You could twiddle your radio dial at 3pm to find a station which is covering the race, or if you want some webstream links, Sky Sports Radio (formerly 2KY) can be heard at http://www.skyracing.com.au/media/playerv2.php (requires Flash Player). Sport 927 in Melbourne have a Windows Media webstream at http://www.radiosportnat.com.au/sport927.asx. 2GB in Sydney are covering the race in Windows Media, MP3 (compatible with most players such as Quicktime, Real Player, VLC etc) and via their website. 2CC Canberra are also covering the race in Windows Media format.
Good luck with the races today.
