A day at the Races

Melbourne Cup at Kembla Grange was a fun day out, Colette and I dressed up the Ponies (Blackie & Sammy) and took them out for a run.

It was nice to dress up and pop on a hat and have a fun day in the sun. A few champas and nibblies was relaxing. I couldn't manage to back a winner, in fact I backed Donkey's all day, first 2 races I picked the horse that came last. I did manage to pick up a little mystery box triffecta to redeem a couple of dollars, which I soon re-invested with no more luck all day.

Somehow Kembla Grange managed to run out of champagne and the lines for the drinks were horrific, but all in all a pretty good day.
