Per year, 3 p.m. The first Tuesday of November will be the Melbourne Cup horse race, and Australia will be shut down for three and a half minutes.
What’s the Melbourne Cup
This is an annual festival that takes place every year on the first Tuesday of November. In fact, the Melbourne Cup-the biggest occurrence in four days of the Melbourne Racing Carnival took place on November 5 at the Flemington Racecourse.
A lot of Australians also avoid doing what they’re doing until 3 p.m. The day of the Melbourne Cup (local time) to watch or listen to the race over the Phone, on television or on the radio. In comparison to the main event at the Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne, nearby races take place concurrently on this day.
On November 4, the port city was buzzing with a parade before the opening ceremony, with the participation of a significant number of locals and foreign visitors. Twenty-four racehorses had the opportunity to become the heroes of the grand parade that took place along the Swanton Road to Federation Square in central Melbourne just one day before the official start of the race.
The race has a great prize
The winning cup, made of 18-carat gold, is then paraded up Swanston Lane, going into Federation Square-where the parade closes and the horse is waiting to win the race.
The race is drawing the interest of the world
The race takes place over a distance of 32,000 meters for horses aged three years and older.
The contest will be organized by almost 24 horses, the most coveted race in the world, with more than 6 million Australian dollars and a Melbourne
Cup Gold Cup of 175 thousand dollars worth of gold. The base of the tree is made of Australian mimosa trees.
