The race is broadcast live to almost 650 million people around the world

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 million Australian dollars and Melbourne 

Cup Gold Cup of 175 thousand dollars worth of gold. The base of the tree is made of Australian mimosa trees. 

Most international horses go to the Melbourne Cup and compete to win the tourney.  In 2014 31 horses, including Japanese, French German 
and New Zealand horses, were called for the Melbourne Cup.
