November 2, 2004 – The Horse Race

15:45 – Good grief she did it again! Makybe Diva has won back-to-back Melbourne Cups – this has never happened before. Good race, and just so we didn’t feel left out, a torrential rainshower came down here in Sydney just after the race 🙂

Place your bets!

Will I do better than in previous years?
